  • Nice area much frequented in the summer by those who love the Sun and beyond. A nice walk along the coast with refreshments and games for children.

  • Nice neighborhood of Barcola where, especially with good weather, you can make beautiful walks on the Boardwalk. Very relaxing.

  • Barcola. Metaphor for life and love. Beautiful promenade shaded by pine trees that shelter from the blinding sun in summer. That offer shelter in winter. The walk that takes you to the beautiful Miramare Castle, during the summer months, you soul of Trieste who go to the bathroom. And it's a path. Metaphor for life. You start from the first stop in shady and cool pine forest, when will you go with parents, siblings, uncles. Forward in the various baths called mice where everyone would go depending on age. Kids, teenagers. Young people. To finish the last of mice to men. Women. And back when elders go to Pinewood bringing the grandkids. Or strolling slowly under the arm to your loved ones. Wonderful view of the Gulf. Blazing sunsets will steal and warm our hearts.
