Treat yourself to a ridiculously expensive drink on the sunny side of the square and watch the sun set at the end of the square. They provide rugs in the colder months to put over your legs so you can feel like your in "Dr. Zhivago".

This is one of the most beautiful places in Trieste. It is surrounded by several outstanding Palaces, as the Communal Palace, the Modello Palace, the Government Palace and Palace Pitteri Lloyd. What makes this square unique and beautifull is that it looks directly to the see, to the Trieste gulf. Nice fountain in the centre of the square with sculptures... More

What a lovely place - beautiful impressive buildings off a frenetically busy piazza. You can find a nice cafe and people watch and literally watch the world go by. It is very touristy and busy but that adds to the energy - it's not bad crowds. Right by the sea! Great place - recommended.

We were there after a long trip. The place is very calm and relaxing, just I front of the sea with a cool sea breeze in summer. Just perfect

It is lovely in the evening with the buildings lit up and the cafes and restaurants full of people. It is very touristy but as long as you find a nice bar with evening aperitivo you will enjoy yourself!

While in Trieste we spent alot of time on the Piazza dell'Unita. Amazing architecture, with the seafront just a stone's throw away. You could spend the day there just taking in your surroundings and people watching! Harry's bar (as in the infamous one in Venice) is also situated on the square and serves the famous bellini! Harry's Bar in Trieste... More

Trieste's central majestic square surrounded by classic architecture, and the largest seafront square in Europe. You must visit the square both in the day and at night to truly get a feel for the grandure and romance of the place. I have been to Trieste a number of times and every time this square takes my breadth away.There are plenty... More
