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. Put Barcola into our Trieste holiday maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Describe the Barcolana who never has been able to attend this global race is really difficult, among others because:-it is worth visiting the city of Trieste in October: the spectacle of thousands of sailing boats of all sizes that face each other in a race in which im not carries both get there, how much there is and be able to tell friends and acquaintances; -The tide of tourists that tens of thousands spend the second weekend of October on the banks of the port, crowded no boats and sailors both jobs and tourists who travel to miles and miles of one side of the huge plaza facing the ' Adriatic; -The scents of food from each region and nationality (in Trieste converge en masse from Slovenia, Croatia, Austria and other neighbouring countries of Eastern Europe restorers and producers of all kinds, featuring food and artisania objects to the crowd that attends Pier in Trieste in the week prior to the race); - And then the events most diverse, linked to the Barcolana, cheering councils and museums to present aspects less visible or lesser known culture of Trieste, Italy and the world. Even for this 49th race worth images, more than any comment. And, of course, the invitation to those who can do so to miss the appointment of 2018, when will take place the 50th race, that will certainly be even more record than the previous ones!
