  • Austere and beautiful port of Italy to the East. Even more so when viewed from the Jetty port is in front!

  • Hard to say something more than those who have already commented on this that is one of the most loved by locals and long would list the vicissitudes of the square, the monument of the four Continents, Mori de Tinza and Marianza hours, and nicknames that the caustic, satirical vein with the alabardati Trieste that sets them apart, they attributed to these in their vernacular. Along with Piazza, perhaps after a stop at Caffè degli Specchi or daring, you shall go to the pier in front of the square and the sea, which is called Bold named after the first ship that docked in Trieste after the victory in the first world war, just bold. The name was previously San Carlo Pier by the name of the wreck of the sunken ship in 1740 and whose wreck, not removed, closed in practice the area occupied today by the piazza, the mandracchio (inner harbour) in Trieste. Just to entice you to a visit with the illusion that you have added something not yet mentioned by others ...

  • Why Trieste is such a magical place? This square in particular. It's full of ancient buildings, fountains and life. Add a sea in front of it. Perfect for any occasion or mood ever.
  • This square is extremely elegant and it faces the sea. I suggest to go there at sunset and have a drink in any of the bars all around
  • Beautiful piazza full of life and history. I would call that the main attraction in trieste's city centre.
  • One of the most beautiful city's squares of the whole world...amazing!
  • Must be the second-largest square I've seen Italy. The lighting design during the night is amazing.
