Castle belonged to Maximilian I Habsburg, brother of Franc Josef emperor of Austro-hungrian empire. Maximilian became emperor of Mexico, but his life tragically ended as he was defeated in revolution and executed.

Our arrival to the Miramare Castello happened at about 16:30, the time for the sunset in January. Couldn't we be more when we walked down the alley of most likely olive trees because the smell of them relieves the lungs :) Then we traveled to the castle itself and it's park. We had a very unique chance to admire the... More

The garden and ponds are exceptional, the castle is a very fine piece of architectural and cultural history. The view of the water is really pretty, too. You will have a nice walk around the outdoor part of this castle, with lots of photo opportunities. This is a very interesting touring spot, and close to good, affordable shopping and beaches.

I am hopelesly inlove with this castle and have visited it for 5 times. I have never met a place that can transpose you in those times, that can give you a magical moment while drinking your cappucino on the terace above the Adriatic sea and i shall never forget those amazing gardens where you can loose yourself for hours.

The Miramare Castle in Trieste is beautiful and the setting is exquisite. A white castle on the sea, with a great history- what more could one ask for?

The 19th-century castle on the Gulf of Trieste near Trieste was built from 1856 to 1860 for Austrian Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian and his wife, Charlotte of Belgium. Regrettably, because of his assassination in Mexico, the Archduke did not get to live there. It sits on a promontory with incredible views. Rooms are well restored and the surrounded park is wonderful... More

This was such a beautiful old castle, still in really great condition. The goounds/gardens surrounding it are also amazing. Really worth visiting and taking the time it have a good look around, allow at least a couple of hours. We also had a fabulous meal at the restaurant at the marina, well worth stopping, the service and food was great.

We traveled by bus on a holiday and reached the castle within 20 minutes. Pretty seaside location with great views and a lovely park, which we regretably viewed only briefly because the opening hours were limited (beginning of November). Make sure to stop for a lunch or snack at Tavernetta right at the little harbor, but make sure to get... More
