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

Gathers lots of people at night time, great buzz and wonderful photo ops! It is close to great gelato shop called Gelato Marco... Nice view to the seaside, and has charming bars around for a quick aperitif. Must see in Trieste.

Just stand in the middle ,look around and drink it all in! Architecture is mostly Austrian, more like Vienna than other cities I have seen in Italy. Lovely, music in the air, people strolling.

I was well impressed with the Piazza. It's very big and the buildings are beautiful on all sides. It's nice how close to the sea it is too. We loved strolling around this area and taking it easy. No one seems to be in a rush and it just had a nice relaxed feel to it.

Every Austrian loves Trieste and longs for the long-lost access to the sea. No different with me, but I actually think that the Italians do a much better job handling the city - providing aperitivo in little snack bars, espresso in small coffee joints, and the latest when it comes to fashionable clothing and leather goods. The Piazza dell'Unita is... More

This Piazza was very large, the architecture was beautiful and opening up to the sea gave it a unique feel. Definitely worth a visit.
