Golfo di Trieste, Trieste

Golfo di Trieste is a large shallow bay of the Adriatic Sea, shared by Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. Prominent bays in the Italian section include the Bay of Panzano and Bay of Muggia, although there are no notable beaches. Take a car along the Strada Costiera, the road along the coast, where you will find several spots to enjoy views of the gulf as well as beautiful sunsets. Every October since 1969, the international sailing race known as "Barcolana regatta" (or Autumn Cup) takes place here--with over 2,000 participants, it is one of the largest of its kind in the world.

  • A show you have to see and stop whenever there is nearby. Typical scenario worthy of the most beautiful cities in the South.

  • Trieste is gorgeous and beautiful as its too bad it doesn't have a beach. But the locals are suitable for swimming and sunbathing. And everything beautiful

  • 1 hour ride - it's worth when the weather in any case! Costs around € 12,-one sees Koper, Piran, Miramare, Duino Castle and the upper lagoon on the Adriatic! Can anything.. :) From GRADO's bus - who wants to - Aquileia and Palmanova. Both must watch!

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.
