Lignano Sabbiadoro is a village and comune within the province of Udine
, in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia
region (north-eastern Italy
). It is one of the main summer resorts in northern Italy and in the Adriatic Sea coast. Lignano Sabbiadoro developed in the early 20th century from some hospitality resorts, which at the beginning could be reached only by sea.
