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.

Following the fire that affected the pier on 15/07/2022, the service is suspended until further notice. On 18/07/2022 work began on the reconstruction of the pier.
