Beach
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.

  • for those who want to go for a nice romantic walk can safely take a walk from Miramare Castle until Trieste centro, overlooking the Gulf of Trieste.

  • On a warm and sunny spring day, that might have seemed almost summer, walking on the Boardwalk of Barcola up to Miramare, an acquaintance of mine is so in love with Austrian ... Trieste who has decided to buy an apartment for holidays and weekends.

  • It's a very nice place for a family walk, for pictures taking and having an ice-cream after lunch. Yachting club looks like from a movie. I recommend a trip in this park.  more »
