  • Really nice square to sit and have coffee. A lot of people and good atmosphere. Nice decorations on the buildings.  more »
  • Beautiful spot looking out over the water at the center of this historic city. This is a required stop when you visit Trieste.  more »
  • I went early in the morning, early September. The light was perfect and sky was clear.. Very cold of course, but it was worth it!  more »

  • Beautiful square with bars and restaurants. Famous Harry's Bar where James Joyce used to hang. Be aware though: tourist prices!
  • The most beautiful city center I have ever seen. The palaces are gorgeous and they reminds me of Vienna a little bit. I really recommend to spend 2 days there to enjoy the night too. When the plaza lights up, the city completely change. It worths your time.
  • Great atmosphere facing the gulf of Trieste. I love to spend one of two hours having a coffee and a chocolate cake while admiring the beautiful architecture that surrounds the square. A place to visit.
  • One of the best piazza I’ve ever seen. Closed off by buildings on three sides, the last ones is facing the see. I love this place.
  • Big place with amazing opening to the see. Surrounded by little coffee places where one can enjoy good Italian espressos! ( Or cappuccinos in the morning ;) )
