Interesting for a walk

Beautiful in its own way! The water is a tad murky but an interesting walk nonetheless, with some beautiful buildings lining the area

There a lot to see and enjoy along the Grand Channel of Trieste. Besides the nice strolls along the street you can enjoy a drink ( an Aperol Spritz for instance at 5 o'clock)in one of the several bars with chairs and tables in the sidewalk and admire the beautiful architecture of the Kaiser theater

Trieste's Grand Canal is a wonderful spot to sit, relax, and people watch. It's an easy walk from the main piazza.

This lovely canal has at its head St Anthony's chiesa. At night the canal is lit by the twinkling lights of the ristoranti on either side.

Worth seeing, but don't go out of your way. One or two good restaurants in the area make it really worth the visit

The canale itself is a nice little spot full with cafes and restaurants along it. I think prices are bit higher in every sense due to location. I suggest a stroll along and for a couple pictures and then head elsewhere for lunch.

Once grand, the canal provided supplies to the city and housed its merchants and authors. Now the bridges are so low that tiny boats must wait until low tide to pass under them.

Worth stroling around, but don't expect much. Especially fine in the the night, when it is very nice spectacle to observe, with all the lights from adjacent buildings dancing on the uneven surfice of the water. Good place to relax.
