Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia / Province of Trieste / Duino / Historic Sites / Castello di Duino
Standing tall on the cliffs over the Gulf of Trieste, you'll find Castello di Duino, a 14th-century fortification that's been owned by the Della Torre family for over 420 years. Since 2003, it's been open for tours. Visit over 18 of the castle's rooms, where you'll find the spiral Palladio staircase, the 1810 forte-piano played by Liszt, and staggering sea views from the towers. Outside, explore the multilevel park where you'll stroll under cascading Mediterranean flowers and take in a wealth of statuary. You'll also find a bunker built during World War II, as well as a bookstore and snack shop. Looking out over the rocks, you'll see the ruins of the old tenth-century castle originally built on this spot. With our international travel planner, Duino attractions like Castello di Duino can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
