Oct 2 On a clear, brisk morning we stopped to visit the grounds and interior of the Castle Miramare. From our hotel in Trieste we were there within 30 minutes although our mini-bus had to park a distance. The 1/4 mile walk was a pleasant introduction enabling us to see the dazzlingly clear Adriatic waters with schools of small fish... More

This is where Maximilian of Asbourg, lived before becoming Emperor of Mexico. The park is beautiful and the Castle is too, both inside and outside. Wonderful see views. The ground floor is the residential part of the castle, quite intimate and "cosy", with the more formal rooms upstairs. Not to be missed!

We visited Castello di Miramare on a late summer afternoon and enjoyed beautiful sunset over the Adriatic from one of the upper teraces. The grounds of the castel are beautiful with gazebos and ponds take you back to romantic principles. Presence of the sea gives the castel special allure because it looks like flowting on sea level. Gothic, Medivial and... More

On the coast north of Trieste, it is clearly the passigiata for the locals but few enter the castle. Dark wood everywhere and portraits of both families : Habsburg and Saxe Coburg .Mainly for tourists looking for history.

You need to see this if only to marvel at how you can take such a fabulous spot and build something so ugly on it. Trust me, the interior is much worse than the exterior, so you could save yourself the entrance fee and just walk round the gardens.

I didn't go into the Castle, as I've seen a lot and really wanted to enjoy the outdoors. I didn't know what to expect, as I hadn't done much research, but what I found was magnificent. Beautiful fauna, nice trails, and wonderful views of the sea and mountains. Totally delightful.

Visited here on a beautiful day. What a spectacular setting for a castle. The rooms are fully furnished and there's plenty to see inside. However it's the outside that makes the trip worthwhile. Lovely views and lots of view points from which to appreciate them. We went by train from Trieste to Miramare station - 9 minutes, first stop. The... More

Take a bus out of town, or go for a long walk along the ocean until you reach this magnificent castle. You walk through various rooms at your own pace. Included in the tour price is both the inside of the castle, and the extensive outdoor areas. Fantastic views of the sea.
