Get off highway and try to drive trought nature of adriatic sea. You will see small vilages and real Italian nature and life. In the same time you will save the money for road toll. Enjoy the ride !!!!

the guidebook we perused suggests to start this trail at its northern terminus and walk southward; I can see the advantage of ending the walk in Opicina, which offers restaurants and coffeeshops, but I think our route (going northward) is much more interesting. Start in piazza Oberdan in Trieste and catch the Opicina tramway (see own review); although it is... More

Caught the tram into Opacina and had a light lunch. A few beers and crisps and nuts. Asked the way to Prosecco and was told by a young lad we couldn't walk there only for him to be corrected by his father that there was a path from the Obelisk to Prosecco and that it was about 5 miles. Walked... More

Beautiful walk to take in the views on a beautiful day, enjoy the native bush, and enjoy the birdlife. Finish off your walk with a stroll along the beachfront, swim in the beautiful clear sea, or sip wine or beer in one of the small local bar/cafes.

While visiting family in Trieste we would go often to this beautiful place for a nice run or equally enjoyable a walk or hike on the side trails while taking photographs. The best way up from the city is Tram Di Opicina, the funicular railway from downtown. the ride cost about a buck and a half. Get off at Obelisco... More

It is worth the effort to either drive up here or take the vintage tram and then walk the entire or partial length. It is a straight, flat walk amidst green foliage with Trieste on one side. Very relaxing and not crowded.

if you are visiting Trieste, take the tramway to Opicina, or bus number 4, and get off to "obelisco": there starts a path to Prosecco which offers you the best view of the city! If you arrive in Prosecco tired, have a ham sandwich and go back to town with bus 44 or 42

Take the old tram to Obelisco, get off there and the walking path starts right here. You can walk all the way to Prosecco, about 4 kilometers. Its a beautiful walk with some stunning views. Once at Prosecco take the 42 bus back to Villa Opicina, and then the tram back to Trieste. You wont be disappointed.

walk, or bike, or climb, or simply take a picture. The view, whatever you are doing, is amazing. And you can start from downtown, take the "tram de opcina", get off at Obelisco and start from there
