It's a pleasant city but beware the very old steel factory and coke works just behind the center of town in the suburbs pumping out tonnes of cancerous producing particles. Will never visit Trieste again. It's an environmental disaster. Shame on the council and residents.

This is imperial Austro-Hungarian architecture - a riot of ornate buildings, imposing city squares and, interestingly, many different churches. This is a town worth visiting just to walk around. The Castello on the top of the hill overlooking the town has some good views, though it is a steep climb.

Before World War I Trieste was the important port of Austria-Hungary, later Italian one. At my photos there are: St.Giusto Castello, Fontana Quattro Continenti, amfiteater, St.Maria Maggiore Church, St.Giusto Church and other.

We went for a day trip yesterday to Trieste, I was impressed with the city and it's beautiful buildings and architecture. Another thing that we found interesting was how clean the downtown core was. I have been to many port cities and found this is one of the cleaner ones. I recommend this town to anyone. Only issue we found... More

I am a proud and lucky offspring of Trieste. That's it. It's a very interesting town, founded by Romans, part of the Austro-Hungarian lot for 500 years, only joined Italy in 1954 (and some people say not legally so to the extent that there may still be grounds to have an independent Montecarlo-type of enclave) and so on. I spent... More

This understated city is not simply the tourist trap I anticipated but rather a working port city with areas of stunning elegance and a welcoming and friendly population. We were spoilt for choice of restaurants, cafes, bars and coffee shops. You can also shop 'til you drop if it takes your fancy and all of this is easily doable on... More
