Barcola, Trieste

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.

  • Not far from the station and the Centre of the city, in summer comes to life and gives the option to sunbathing, strolling, bathing, I mean what you normally do at the beach. Beautiful area of pine forest and the great fountain at the beginning

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.
