Trieste

Pearl of the Adriatic

Trieste is a charming old town with a quiet atmosphere often compared to eastern European cities. Though it was once an influential center of politics, literature, music, art, and culture, today foreign travelers often bypass the city on their way to vacation in bigger cities and seaside resorts. Trieste was at one time a major port on the Austrian Riviera, so many of the attractions, including the most prominent museums and churches in the historic city center, were built in Viennese style. Explore them on foot or by hopping on a public bus or tram. The city's pubs and cafes are seldom crowded. Trieste is in Province of Trieste. When using our Italy attractions website , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Trieste

Trieste's historical town center is filled with a host of hotels boasting comfortable rooms with panoramic views of the surrounding area. Hotels in this zone also tend to be pricey and often require booking well in advance. If you are traveling on a budget and prefer not to forge your plans months in advance, consider staying at a private guesthouse or B&B. Trieste's family-run operations not only provide spacious rooms and access to private outdoor space, but also serve their guests with insider tips about the city's less-known bars, restaurants, and historical sites.
