  • Easy trail, just be careful where you put your feet, breathtaking view! Pity that the restaurant was super packed. next time we will book the day before.

  • The Rilke trail is a scenic walk from the Tourist Office of Sistiana, peaking at Duino Castle, skirting the "natural reserve of cliffs of Duino"; currently the trail is again passable in good safety after a period of adjustment works, lasted for about two years, and ended in 2015. The trail is named after the Prague poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who lived in the castle of Duino in early ' 900, drawing inspiration from his walks on the trail, for his work "Duino Elegies". The path is easy and accessible to all (a short section near the end, is also accessible by handicapped persons), and offers beautiful views from many vantage points, they leave space in front of the sea, the cliffs of Duino , on the lower slopes of the karst forests in which sections of the trail to penetrate. The trail is not very long (about 2 km), and is, in essence, a sort of terrace overlooking the sea; It takes about half an hour, walking calmly.

  • The trail a little more than a few km, you see from above the cliffs of Duino (nature park), probably the most beautiful stretch of sea in our region. The ideal visit is to be made by sea, no boats, just a canoe rental too (there are also guided tours); the views are indescribable, the bathroom on the beach below the castle of Duino unmatched ... even for a mountain lover like me!

  • I am a huge Rilke fan. Getting up to the view was easy, but there wasn’t a mark to know if I was in the most precise spot. Beautiful view.
  • If you're in Sistiana or Duino and you have spare 3 hrs you should definitely walk from Duino Castle to Sistiana Bay and back. Very nice views.
  • a beautiful litte walk with amazing views
  • Nice walk. Take good boots...
  • Beautiful scenery, a bit crowded
