Castello di San Giusto, Trieste

(3.8/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Head to Castello di San Giusto, a former Roman fort, to visit the city museum's impressive collection of weapons and furnishings. Set atop a large hill, the 15th-century castle also boasts a collection of mosaic tiles, statuary, and burial stones, which are hidden in a series of deep underground cellars accessed from one corner of the site. Frederick of Habsburg initiated construction of the castle, which was finished by Venetians. Pay attention to the metal statues that welcome you at the entrance, which tell the entertaining story of Mike and Jake.

  • The price of admission is not worth the visit. Within the walkways, the historical artifacts ... you know there are the most interesting castles.

  • located on the Hill of San Giusto, next to the Basilica di San Giusto, Trieste, and then at the top, it's very interesting to visit but also for this attraction requires a great aptitude to walk naturally, since it already to enter the front door you have to make a slight uphill climb. inside there is a very large yard and several rooms, including the Camel and the Armory. From the Castle you can enjoy a magnificent view of the Gulf and the panorama below and

  • The castle is well worth a visit. I found it very interesting to follow the walkway of the guards. You can enjoy the panorama of the city of Trieste from various points of view. The internal rooms noneranoaccessibili due to work. We were able to visit the salt containing finds of Roman tombstones, statues, trieste remains of mosaic floors etc. make you discover how ran the city at that time.
