This is certainly the most beautiful square in the city. You have impressive buildings in all the directions of it, and it's large area gives an imposing sensation. We were making a quick day trip to Trieste from Slovenia, however you certainly can visit the museums and other places if you want to spend more time. Otherwise, just spend the... More

Really beautiful seafront square. Buildings around it show history of the city which once was not part of Italy. During the night, lighting makes it even more beautiful.

The music and the decorations at Christmas made this a must see location. There was a little café that you could sit at outside with blankets and enjoy the setting.

This is said to be the largest square on the front sea. It is really imposing and beautiful and a local myth says that if you try to walk with your eyes closed from the city hall towards the two poles (placed quite aside from each other) at the other end of the square, you won´t make it! Maybe because... More

The square faces the sea and its closed on three sides by beautiful palaces of 19 century. At night it colours with many blue lights at the floor that make very romantic impression. A lots of bars and shops nearby, it is close to the railway/bus station and the city acquarium. The big palace in front of the sea has... More

Piazza Unità d'Italia is the heart of Trieste. It is spectacular: the buildings that surround it all tell their individual story and are of great architectural interest. It opens up onto the gulf of Trieste and it is full of cafes where winter or summer you can enjoy a good coffee or an aperitif.
