What to do in Bibione and Lignano in the colder months

As the colder months approach, the pace slows down, giving tourists who choose Bibione and Lignano Sabbiadoro for their autumn and winter beach holidays the chance to rediscover these two seaside gems by experiencing them with even more peace and freedom, for a new season of #EtgroupHolidays.

A perfect experience for those who want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, without having to give up a holiday full of activities for all tastes, for an all-round “slow” experience.

So what to do in Bibione and Lignano in the colder months?

We have selected for you 5 unmissable activities

Regenerate at Bibione Thermae

The crisp air brings with it the desire to be cradled and enveloped by the warm waters of Bibione Thermae, a spa complex boasting a wellness pavilion with indoor and outdoor thermal pools, whirlpools, Finnish saunas, Turkish baths and a state-of-the-art beauty farm, plus a health pavilion dedicated to thermal and rehabilitation treatments affiliated with the National Health Service.

The leitmotif of all the programmes between relaxation, wellness and health is the healing power of Bibione’s thermal water.

For a different experience, do not miss Bibione Thermae’s event “La notte dei desideri” (“The night of wishes”). During the winter period, every Saturday night from 6.00 p.m. to 11.00 p.m., you will have access to the thermal pools and saunas. To enrich the themed evenings, an aperitif prepared by the skilful hands of the spa chef.
(Entrance to saunas + pools with aperitif Euro 34.00)

Take advantage of our “Speciale vivi tutto l’anno con noi“ (“Live with us all year round special“) offer to receive free daily admission for 2 people to the thermal pools (except Tuesdays and 25.12).

Taste Savoy Beach Hotel & Thermal Spa’s fine cooking

In the kitchens of Savoy Beach Hotel, the transformation of raw ingredients becomes a tale of sublime experiences that offer a taste of fine dining.

During your stay, you can enjoy the rich buffet of its main restaurant Elisabetta di Lorena, which will feature gourmet weeks this autumn and winter. Our chef Alessandro and his brigade will take our guests on a journey to discover new flavours and combinations, starting with the typical products that our territory brings in this season.

December, on the other hand, gives way to the traditional flavours of the Veneto region linked to Christmas, to savour dishes from childhood revisited in a contemporary key.

Price reserved for Europa Tourist Group customers: € 45.00 excluding drinks

If, on the other hand, you would like to enrich your autumn and winter holidays with a more intimate dinner enjoying even more refined dishes with attention to detail, the Duca d’Aosta à la carte restaurant with its old-world atmosphere will take you on a gastronomic journey through the past, present and future.

Discover the menu at the Duca d’Aosta restaurant.

Admire nature aboard the Emerald River

Navigating the river Tagliamento in the stretch that marks the natural border between Bibione and Lignano Sabbiadoro is an exciting experience. In the colder months, the banks of this important Alpine river become ever so colourful, delighting our guests during cruises on board the Emerald River boat – Marina Azzurra Resort’s own clubhouse.

We have scheduled two excursions for winter 2022: the first on December 11th, perfect to enjoy the Immaculate Conception weekend, the second on December 30th, to end 2022 in style.

The excursion starts at 11 a.m. and lasts approximately 3 hours. Included during the trip is a lunch of Veneto gastronomy with a seasonal main course and dessert, a glass of wine or prosecco and water. Bar service with drinks on payment and musical entertainment are sure to delight you throughout the trip.

Enjoy the shots of the great international photographers of “Magnum’s Italy”

Not far from the beaches of Bibione and Lignano Sabbiadoro is the medieval town of Portogruaro, a gem whose historic centre, characterised by its ancient mills, the Concordiese National Museum and Venetian-style palaces, becomes even livelier in winter.

If summers in Portogruaro are characterised by the prestigious music festival, the colder months leave room for the international exhibitions and collections hosted at Palazzo Vescovile, which this winter will be home to the exclusive photographic exhibition “L’Italia di Magnum. From Robert Capa to Paolo Pellegrin”.

The exhibition is open for visits from October 8th, 2022 to February 5th, 2023 and brings the great photographers of the Magnum Photos photo agency, founded in New York in 1947, to our area for the first time. This exhibition tells a tale of times gone by through the eyes of the great masters of photography.

Take advantage of our “Speciale vivi tutto l’anno con noi“ (“Live with us all year round special“) offer to receive free admission to the photo exhibition.

Celebrate Christmas with the events in Lignano Sabbiadoro

Lignano Sabbiadoro from 8th December 2022 to 8th January 2023 turns into a real Christmas village on the sea. You can take a stroll surrounded by the scent of hot chocolate and mulled wine in the traditional Christmas market “Lignano Natale d’Amare“, admire the suggestive Sand Nativity and have fun in the seafront ice skating rink.

And then again, fairy tales for children, concerts and shows in Piazza Fontana under the Christmas tree and at the Cinecity cinema.
