  • Large and beautiful 19th-century building near the banks of Trieste. For that alone is worth the visit. Testifies to what was the austro-Hungarian Trieste's cultural and entrepreneurial verve. Rooms, furniture, paintings and return the epic family Revoltella. Upstairs an interesting context for contemporary art gallery roofs and back-Ward facades.

  • You can't imagine what awaits you as you enter the Revoltella Museum, located in the Centre of Trieste, in the borgo Giuseppino, owned diP asquale Revoltella, entrepreneur and financier who was enriched thanks to the actions of the isthmus of Suez, is an elegant three-story neo-Renaissance building overlooking Piazza Venezia. Thanks to the disposable income of its owner, the elegance that it denotes in the salt reaches the highest degree of sophistication and refinement on the third floor. By parquet, ceilings, fine furnishings, draperies and upholstery of gilding on the third floor the path ends and introduces at the Gallery of modern art. Recommend a guided tour. We appreciate everything more. Opening hours 10.00-19.00 adults 7 euros

  • My daughter and I were looking for the Natural History Museum when we found out that the car GPS took us to entirely the wrong place. Fortunately the Revoltella Museum was there instead! The house is beautifully restored to the time period, which gave us a great opportunity to see how the upper class lived in the Napoleonic period. Lasciviously decorated rooms throughout the whole house. Happy accident and we loved it. A big plus for me was the Suez Canal dedicated room.
  • Nice museum in Trieste, the old part is very interesting.
