  • I was in this square in windy and rainy evening. Despite all the charm of the buildings lit up that comprise it makes a square that will be unforgettable for me. Absolutely place not to be missed when visiting Trieste also because it is the center of the city

  • What a lovely square, boxy and extremely wide and always well kept and clean. Try to pass in the evening and becomes even more beautiful all lit up. Council a souvenir photo that will remind you of Trieste. To visit if you go this way. Tiziano

  • The second biggest square on the sea in Europe! This beautiful square is one of the main attractions of the city and a must if you come visit Trieste. The palaces are great! Well enlightened at night and you can enjoy a great 360° view 24/7! The sunset is also very pretty to admire from the square.
  • Amazing square with breathtaking view on the sea. The buildings around are stunning. It almost seems to be in Wien. Love it!
  • In my opinion the best square in Italy. Both by day and by night that place is breathtaking.
  • Beautiful square! You can almost feel the history of Trieste strolling by all the historical buildings. I'd reccomend taking a quick break on one of the benches or steps, just enjoying the atmosphere.
  • Amazing atmosphere in this lovely square, kids will enjoy it! Very nice cafes and restaurants. Very nice views on the sea
