This should be the number #1 ranked attraction in Trieste. The castle is nicely preserved with great period furnishings and historical pieces. The museum is educational and helps you appreciate the significance of the castle's former occupants. The park grounds are lovely with magnificent ocean views everywhere you look.

An amazing place to go and see.i strongly raccomand a walk close to the sea and go across the amazing garden consider at least 5 hours. Fully served by parking foc and pay per use. You get to the town just in 10 minutes out of the highway E70. I leaved there my heart 😎😎😎😎😎

I have been in many castles, but this one truly is on of the best. The whole area is steeped in history. I spent at least 30 minutes photographing the Roman ruins outside before crossing the drawbridge into the castle. There a small fee to enter the 'inner places' but so worth it. The exhibits are well done. I especially... More

This Castle is located at the very west part of Trieste, we liked the nature sorounding it, and the lovely architecture.

The Miramare castle was the most beautiful location in the city in our opinion. Of course the historical town is beautiful, but it's kind of similar to many other cities in italy and Europe. Miramare is more unique. It's a nice mansion location in a rocky promontory with a beautiful park behind it. You have combined views of the sea,... More

We took a bus here and it was quite easy as it was at the end of the bus line. It was interesting and a great place to visit. Prepared to do a lot of walking. The gardens are nice to walk through and there is a small café on site.

A most romantic location, with an impressive panorama and a tragic history: Maximilian, who was supposed to live here with his wife, did not really have a chance to enjoy this great location, since he was murdered in Mexico. Luckily, we can now take advantage of his lovely mansion.

This castle is the real deal - you are able to see many rooms decorated as they were for the original inhabitants/owners as well as a few in those of another generation. We did not get the audio tour and found the English language markers/descriptions in each of the rooms more than adequate. Be sure to make time to tour... More

Walked from our hotel the first afternoon we were in Trieste (it was less than 1 mile) and enjoyed the walk on the Promenade, and the visit to the castle. It is well worth the entry fee. Each room is well appointed, and there is enough explanation in each room (in English, too) for us to follow what was what.... More

If you're lucky with the weather then this place can make for some really good photos. The interior isn't quite as interesting. Well worth arriving early to avoid the crowds: I was quite surprised by the long line of people waiting to go in as I left. A highlight of a visit to Trieste. The park is really nice also... More
