    Drink coffee in the square, learn its history and take in the beauty of Trieste. Walk across the road to see the bronze statues on the sea, and stroll to the canal, then back along the lovely shop lined streets. If you're lucky you may visit Trieste when a concert is happening in the square, and it's a great spot for New Year's Eve!

    The inside and the outside of the castle is very beautiful, same can be said about the view of the Adriatic Sea. The museum was a bit boring.

    The museum is free however a €3 audio guide helped bring the realities to life. This was a very informative stop and a must in Trieste to understand the history and experiences particularly in ww2. This is definitely worth seeing and learning about.

    Stunning location at the top of a hill overlooking Trieste.
    We walked up from the town which is quite a difficult trek uphill on cobbled and uneven streets. However it was worth the effort. The Cathedral is beautiful and near to the ruins of the castle and the war memorial.

    The Van Gogh exhibit in Trieste was incredible. Tha paintings were vibrant, each telling its own story. A memorable experience!

    Lovely and tranquil walk with stunning views. Started in Prosecco and finished at the Obelisk. Took the bus Nr 4 back to Trieste.

    We felt like escaping the town and finding the beach so took a bus (which was included in the 24 hour bus ticket) to Barcola.
    The beach is not sandy but is perfect for a hot day because there are wooded areas, with trees for shade and plenty of seats. We sat near the steps that lead into the sea.
    Swimming is only for strong swimmers because the water is deep straight away. We had a great time swimming and relaxing before taking the bus back into town.
    The beach was mostly full of locals and had a friendly atmosphere.

    We were in Trieste for only two days in December so there are not many tours running. It is easy to do some of the main attractions by yourself. We walked up to the castle. It is a bit of a climb but not too strenuous. The views of Trieste from the parapets are beautiful even on a wintry day. My husband enjoyed the armoury.

    Definitely must take a walk to the end of the pier, not just to see the incredible Adriatic but to turn around and look at the architecture along the quai.
