A city of historic grandeur
On the very edge of Italy—nestled up against Slovenia and at the intersection of Latin, Slavic, and Germanic cultures—Trieste’s historic grandeur still captivates: from the well-preserved Roman amphitheater to the array of noble buildings with elaborate neo-classical facades, to the Piazza dell’Unita d’Italia, a vast square bordering the seafront. Trieste even has its very own Grand Canal.
Miramar Castle, built in 1856 for Archduke Maximilian, is the perfect place for a relaxing stroll amid romantic gardens complete with ponds, swans, and floating lotuses.Download An Explorer Guide +
