Not just any "little" castle on the Italian coast, but a high quality history lesson of the Austrian royalty' wealth and world vision. The furniture and design is eclectic and each room is extremely well kept with different items that reveal ideas of their times. It stands in contrast with another part of the castle that was renovated in Art... More

Amazingly well preserved and presented. It would help if you arranged a taxi to pick you up afterwards.

A beautiful castle on the Adriatic Sea, in Trieste, Italy. It is worth the 1.5 hr train ride from Venice. The castle has many of the original pieces as well as some periodieces , to fill in the gaps. A lot of items were stolen during WWII.the landscaped grounds also host a cafe and a beautiful pond with swans

What a shame that the Archduke couldn’t enjoy living in the castle that he had planned and built for himself and his wife. Sadly, he was assassinated in 1867, only seven years after the castle was completed. Miramare, a fairy-tale looking white castle, is perched on a promontory overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. If you have time, take a tour... More

Loved the fact that the museum had the original furniture and provided excellent commentary on the castle.

The view outside the castle towards the waterfront was serene. The front yard garden could of been better maintained. The inside of the castle was interesting, and good self-guided tour to do since there were abundant history about the castle written in each room of the castle. I had a great time visiting this castle!

I've been to a LOT of castles, living in Europe... and I think this one just took the top position. Parking: We drove up to the castle parking, though if you park lower down near the beaches, and can find an open spot, you can park for free. Our parking would have cost €6-7 but what we didn't realize is... More

Some history, some architecture, some gardening, some seaview... It is a unique place with strong historic background.

Enjoyed all the walk from the parking to the castle, lovely shore with wonderful view of trieste and the sea and the fish and birds. The castle is really beatifulllllllll from the outside with beautiful garden and grounds around it. Didn't feel like paying the high entrance fee, maybe around 12€, after enjoying the nice view from the castle grounds.... More
