Beautiful old buildings, with one side of the plaza open to the Adriatic. Several side streets branch off from the plaza, leading to great restaurants and shops. The week I was there, a stage had been set up for an outdoor classical music concert. Although the stage intruded on my photos, the concert was free and well attended by the... More

A must visit at sunset with the last sun sparkling on the golden mosaics. From there take a walk in Cavana or on the molo Audace.

Town Squares are meant to be a crossroads cum distribution points for a city and this one certainly does this. It has at least 8 streets running off it plus a frontage to the harbour waterfront. It contains the very helpful Tourist Office and some high priced restaurants, plus some memorable buildings. Just remember that in this square and in... More

This Piazza is more like ones we saw in Vienna. Quite pretty and huge right alongside the Adriatic Sea. Not crowded and prices in the surrounding cafés surprisingly reasonable compared to St Marks square in Venice and others in Rome. A lovely surprise!

We were surprised at what a beautiful historic square Trieste has to show off. This showcases the Hapsburg Empire feel of the city and we caught it on a day with beautiful weather. It is surrounded by some additional pedestrian area that is spacious, clean, and attractive. Well worth stopping by for a cup of Trieste's notoriously good coffee.

I travel to Trieste frequently, and Piazza Unita' is always a "must" on my list. Sit at Caffe degli Specchi on a sunny day and enjoy a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste and the best people-watching in the city. Then walk around this stunning square to look at the beautiful architecture.

I really enjoyed this piazza. It's quite grand with its ornate architecture and large central space. I had an aperitivo there last night at one of the outdoor cafes and there was a classical concert going on in the middle of the piazza. Chairs were set up around the band and for 2€, you could sit and listen to the... More

We stayed right on the Piazza Unita and the setting was very nice. The ability to simply walk out of the hotel and be right in the middle of all the action was very convenient. Access to restaurants, bars, shopping an djust plain walking around was enjoyable,

This is where you'll find the city's tourist office (down a side street on the far right hand side of the square as you look at it with your back to the sea front) from which the excellent daily guided tours set off. Very helpful staff. The square itself is magnificent and it deserves the traveller's attention in its own... More
