X River - Cycle and pedestrian ferry on the Tagliamento river


A boat navigates the Tagliamento river, connecting the different banks in Friuli and Veneto. This is a service for tourists travelling on foot and by bicycle and means that the towns of Lignano Sabbiadoro and Bibione are closer together than ever.

X River, the boat connection between Lignano Sabbiadoro and Bibione on the Tagliamento River is operative in Summer 2020, respecting the safety distances.
