  • This church is situated on Castle Hill. A staircase allows you to reach it. Dark inside. In the Apsis you can see the apotheosis of Mary Immaculate. In this church, we also found an altar dedicated to the guardian angel.

  • All in Sad is beautiful and with different architecture of other cities I've visited. Valley then check out this beautiful church. Have a grand staircase to get to her, but worth it. And beside the Church has a few narrow streets, is very different from the vision that we have of the square and stately Castle!

  • The sanctuary of Santa Maria Maggiore is definitely one of the places to visit in Trieste. It's placed near the unification of Italy and is at the foot of the Hill San Giusto. The many works of art within it embellishes the visit. Placed at his side the Romanesque church of San Silvestro and nearby, the Roman Theatre. If you are arriving from the city centre, can be reached via a few flights of stairs.

  • nice one
  • A church on the small hill.
  • Imposing, with its sweeping staircase, this church commemorates the Jesuit presence in town. Caution If you suffer from Vertigo or agorofobia, the scale of return can give some dizziness.

  • To my taste, the most beautiful church in Trieste. Its location makes it even more spectacular.

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.
