  • Beautiful area. The ice cream by the harbour is great on a sunny day. The train station is where Joyce left his wife to wait while he went off to find accommodation. Then he went drinking and got himself arrested :) Nice one Jimmy!
  • Really Awesome place! Must visit once. It is in the center of the city. Also view is very nice in all directions 😁
  • One of the best square in Europe just in front of the harbor. The Caffè Specchi offers a variety of excellent drink and coffees. The ancient hotel Duchi and the Harry's bar is here just near the Municipality building. On Sunday morning the locals use to walk here and you are just a few steps from the Teatro Verdi.
  • Beautiful and well maintained plaza with good shops and restaurants. Great for photography. One of Trieste's best attractions.
  • Probably one of the most beautiful places in Italy. you cannot miss the beautiful sight of the sea. at night the blue lights create dreamy atmosphere.

Where to stay in Trieste
