Lignano Sabbiadoro [1] is a seaside resort located on the Adriatic Sea coast of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, in the North-Eastern part of Italy.

It is one of favored summer holiday retreats of the Germans and Swiss in the near-by north, who come for the pristine beaches, active nightlife, and culture.

  • Sabbiadoro at the Eastern end of the peninsula, contains a bustling commercial center, soaring high rise condominiums and yet even more nightlife and cultural venues than Pineta.
