Surrounded on three sides by sea, Miramare is tiny as castles go with captivating views, hillside park and very interesting collection revealing the lives of those who have lived there.

We arrived on a misty February morning at opening time (10:00) and basically had the castle to ourselves for the first hour...not tourist season yet in Trieste.

Not magnificent but still very beautiful place where you can relax and enjoy the nature. It has a little bit of everything: a story, a charm, a nice location by the sea and near the city.
