After spending the weekend in Venice, Trieste was a dissapointment. And the Grand Canal was as well. What could be a picturesque city is dotted with construction cranes and the port is full of industrial things blocking what would be a lovely view.

This is nothing specialty.... There is a few so good restaurants alongside of Canal. Nice when the weather is nice... But Trieste is small town and you will surely visit this area.

Its pretty easy to find, nothing special, but it makes for a good picture. Lots of little Christmas type stands make for an interesting stroll in December

It is not like in Venezia, but it is worth to see speacially if you are on the trip to north Italy. Here you can have coffee, maybe go to shoping,

We were at our trip to North Italy, so we took three hours break in Trieste. This is a must sea part of the town. The canal itself is nothing special, but this is a great place to wander, have a coffee break or a meal. You could feel here the history too, but don't expect too much.

Nice area in Trieste but not very impressive. Pictures create impression that it looks much longer than in reality.

This is a lovely little area with lots of cafes and restaurants. We just enjoyed wandering around here and sitting about. It's only a small canal but the area has a nice relaxing feel to it.

The Canale Grande is a great place to wander. It's one of the most scenic and nicest places in the town of Trieste. Worth visiting!

If you search for some pleasant place where to enjoy a coffee break in Trieste this is a must. Apart from being a place with a good choice of locals you could feel here the history, it has quite a special atmosphere, however don´t expect something like Venice, this is not Venice, this is Trieste!

Arriving by train we made an initial stop here for coffee on a sunny day. There are a number of cafe's that line each side of this rather "tongue is cheek" named waterway making it a very relaxed and picturesque spot. The two stone bridges that cross the Canal have been complimented by a pedestrian bridge since our last visit... More
