The center of Trieste, its heart, facing the Adriatic, full of caffè storici (historic caffès), echoes of James Joyce.

Magnificent buildings! A place you should visit both in the morning sunlight and at night, when the buildings are beautifully illuminated. A must see for visitors to Trieste.

A great place to see locals at leisure or celebrating special days. Trade union demonstrations, displays,cultural gatherings all happen here. Plenty of' people watching' opportunities and bars to enjoy the popular pre-dinner "aperitivi".

If you are in Trieste, it is a nice plaza that has a unique view to the sea. Nice buildings around the plaza. Lot of wind, so in the winter time must be freezing!
