Restaurants, gondolas and tourists everywhere, espacialy if weather is nice and shiny. It will make your impression even better. We walk along boath sides and restorants were crowded, so hurry to take your place and enjoy food, view, music and propose somebody ;) This was one of the most romantic anneversary :)))

If you are in Trieste, this is a nice canal to check out. You can see the reflection of the surrounding buildings on the water. Take your picture of the canal, and then head to the town main square.

It divides the better part of town from the less desirable area approaching the train station and provides and interesting small waterway where boats are moored. There are one or two average cafe's overlooking at the water. At the city end there is the Piazza S Antonio Nouvo.

I've seen some old photos of square rigged ships in the canal to unload,which must have been quite a sight , but now with just a few pleasure craft and fishing boats it is at best mildly picturesque. Some good shops and cafes though, back behind St Antonio church.

Are the people who write these reviews actually for real!! No,.indeed its not like the canal grande in Venice. ;))) Trieste also does not have a Doges Palace!! Should we take a mark away for this. Hilarious. Is there a trip advisor badge for tourist stupidity?

went there with a few classmates and spent around a week in Venice. the small alleyways, the canals and the friendly atmosphere makes this city a must see one. though the night life dies not make it to the level of other European cities, the small bars are quite nice and very homey like.
