    Trieste's main square ... the day is gorgeous but gives her best in the evening with the illuminations of both the floor of the various premises and adjacent buildings. Nice place to go for a walk

    It seems to be in another era, dreamily and triestini are very friendly. I've been to this fantastic city for 3 weeks and I honestly can't wait to go back.

  • 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

Trieste's historical town center is filled with a host of hotels boasting comfortable rooms with panoramic views of the surrounding area. Hotels in this zone also tend to be pricey and often require booking well in advance. If you are traveling on a budget and prefer not to forge your plans months in advance, consider staying at a private guesthouse or B&B. Trieste's family-run operations not only provide spacious rooms and access to private outdoor space, but also serve their guests with insider tips about the city's less-known bars, restaurants, and historical sites.
