  • 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
