We stayed in the Starhotels Savoia (a very good hotel, worth considering!) close to the Piazza dell'Unita. It really is a most elegant striking square … to us, this is one of the undoubted pleasures of European travel - the beautifully kept pedestrianised central squares…. statues, fountains, restaurants and bars around the square where you can sit for all day...

This is a truly beautiful piazza. It is said to be Europe's largest square located next to the sea. We were there in late afternoon when the buildings were glowing in the amber light of Autumn, and the Adriatic was shimmering like a silver blanket. The loveliest thing about Trieste is that it is relatively tourist free, not like its... More

I had read about the grandidute of the square and I certify that it's indeed one of the most beautiful squares. Amazing architecture! There are many cafés and shops around. We spent a lovely evening strolling and drinking wine.

Just, one of the things that make Trieste a great city. Architecture, harmony, space, history. How is it possible anyone one could give this attraction less than 5 stars is quite worrying - they would surely have some mental problems and shouldnt be allowed to travel outside of their own miserable city/town/village/hovel.

This is a beautiful piazza, and it's so unique given its history with the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. It looks lovely at night and there's always a nice crowd with places to get gelato and a bite to eat.

Huge piazza with fantastic view. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants around, and you can enjoy good Italian coffee with view on Adriatic sea....

We were there for New Year's Eve. It was quite an event. We had dinner at the Harry's Grill so it was great to watch all the event from the glass walls/windows. I would not mix with the crowd. It was really full and crazy. But that is just me. People seemed to be having a lot of fun with... More

A very good place to visit in Trieste. It is a big piazza with lots of bars and restaurants around, in summers it is full of people.
