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.

  • A great guide brought this place to life through stories and made this visit such a treat. In a beautiful setting and would recommend getting there by boat to make this a must destination  more »
  • Been there a couple of times and it always takes my breathe away! Really, a must see castle when in Trieste ❤️  more »
  • This is certainly an interesting castle and has more of a modern history than some. That said, just reaching the castle can be a chore as the bus stop is either a long walk away or a closer walk, but ...  more »

  • Nice place to have a walk. the sea was very beautiful. The park of the castle was very green and well maintained.
  • Awesome castle! Absolutely must see in Triest! Here's a tip: if you're using the city transport make sure to buy two single way tickets for the bus BEFORE you go to the castle- there's no way to buy a ticket on your way back and it's too far to walk.
  • This castle built by the Austrian emperor Maximilian is for sure worth a visit! You can either explore the very nice interior of the castle or you can walk in the wide park with its lovely little lakes and woods.
  • This is a very beautiful place. We really liked it. A little bit difficult to find a car park next to the entrance. After parking I was confusioned by beggars who quiped to me and wanted money. I didn't liked that.
  • As with all Princess Sisi's palaces, even this one is a very beautiful palace, lovely and rich garden, with a very interesting history too. A must visit if in Trieste, since it's within walking distance from the city. Check the photos attached for a glimpse of its beauty.
