  • This beautiful square, the main city, is a large paved area, surrounded by beautiful buildings of the style of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Their beauty derives from the sense of spaciousness, the architectural beauty of the surroundings, its historic monuments and the movement of visitors from all over the world. Walk, stop, admire, take a coffee and watch the passers-by, are a wonder to the troubled spirit of the tourist. There's no way to visit Trieste without knowing its main point. It's worth it!

  • Probably the most beautiful square of Italy and the world, to say the least. Surely sea squares like this there are none. The night with blue lights (indicating the level from which came the sea) is fantastic at Christmas is wonderful.

  • In my opinion one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, curated, simple and elegant a great calling card for a large region as the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and for the entire nation.

  • 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
