  • With any luck we came to Trieste to the last Friday of the month, in which the Club Alpinistico Triestino organizes a guided tour inside this complex of galleries of anti-aircraft shelter built during World War II. Very charming and interesting. All explained and contextualized by highly trained volunteers who manage to make you "relive" that tragic period of history from the point of view of Trieste. Absolutely recommended!

  • The last Friday of the month, without reservation, turn up at 20.00 hours before at number 11 of mountaineering group representatives had then to Trieste via Fabio Severo await to guide those interested within the municipal galleries antiaircraft (aren't the only in Trieste as I reported the guide) called Kleine Berlin (that's because later were enlarged by order of the Germans to enjoy themselves later. As I said in the title the guide showed us slides explaining the history of Trieste during the war and then led us through these galleries (temperature about 15°) showing us many specialties. For example the differences in construction between the Italian and German part (plastered and concrete more often). Inside is an exhibition of photographs and vintage items. Highly recommended to all, to bear in mind, however, that the Italian side at some points it is wet on the ground so better closed shoes.

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.
