Barcola, Trieste
(4/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Unwind in the quaint seaside neighborhood of Barcola, where the saltwater breeze permeates the air, fishing boats line the harbor, and gelato stands line the shore. Quiet and charming, the area is ideal for long walks to take in the scenic view or swimming and sunbathing on tanning platforms. Enjoy an abundant choice of great local food at the many local restaurants. Consider visiting the nearby Miramare Castle, a 19th-century citadel and popular tourist destination. Sailing buffs will be interested to know that the neighborhood hosts an annual European sailing regatta. Make Barcola part of your personalized Trieste itinerary using our Trieste itinerary builder.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the Fun and Fair of the Barcola when we visited Trieste early October 2016.So much to see and do. 
  • Thanks to the sunny day, we were able to enjoy this Boardwalk-concrete Beach, we wanted to come in spring summer to see this strange town beach. Not to be missed.
