The gulf of Trieste has the most sunsets. It is particularly nice to walk along the coast-line in the summer and watch the sunset in Miramare or at Molo Audace. There are so many nice things along the beach. On the day of Barcolana, it is best to go somewhere and watch the sailboat race from afar.

Along the "Strada Costiera", the road along the coast one can find several spots where to park and enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf. The classic part of the Golfo portraits in pictures is probably the one including the Castello di Miramare. The Golfo offers some amazing sunsets especially during fall days. One of the best looking gulfs in Italy

One of the largest and most beautiful pizzas in Italy surrounded classical buildings and facing Adriatic sea. Lively, pleasant and enjoyable where friends and family spend enjoyable time.

The water is very clear and warm in early September. There is no real beach, so you lay on a wall and climb down some stone stairs to swim. You can join a private club.

We spent 2 days in Trieste to break up our week in Venice. Train connections (only 2 hours one way) made trip easy. Town was not crowded so it was a blessing after having spent a few days in crowded Venice. Hotel was excellent value, and restaurants were very good, large portions, quality food. The Port area nice. We spent... More

Even on a Sunday people walk along the Gulf of trieste and you can see from the Trieste town that shaped the gulf. We drove along this gulf to the airport and there are port and small boats along.. Great for families...on a day out

This area is very interesting, as it provides many different scenics - view of the Alps and mountains (in winter covered with snow), Carso hills descending steeply to the Adriatic Sea, landmarks of Duino Castle, Miramare Castle, Faro della Vittoria lighthouse, Trieste, and, in the opposite direction, Monfalcone industrial sights, and then natural reserve of the Isonzo (Soca) River.

There is a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Trieste with azure blue water and golden brown hills. What a lovely spot to sit and have some local red wine while watching the calm waters of the Adriatic.

It's big, it's pretty. It's also still got a lot of the old industrial port visible, but that's ok with me. Probably nicer in summer when it's green and not so windy (che vento!!). I would not go to Trieste just to see this gulf (go to Napoli or Cinqueterra or Ancona instead). But it paints a wonderful backdrop to... More
