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.

If you are in Triest, to visit the Piazza is a must. The buildings around the square are really worth to see.

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.

The piazza is a very nice place to visit. The surrounding buildings and their style make it a beautiful area. It's definitely worth the effort to see.

I loved the sunset hours, when this place, which is turned towards the West, gets inundated by the warm colours the light takes on at that time of the day. The magnificent buildings along the place take up a golden glow.

Surrounded on three sides by elegant public buildings and opening out on to the seafront on the third, this is a beautiful square. At night all the main buildings are lit up to spectacular effect. There are a number of nice cafes in the square itself and the whole area is full of restaurants and shops and is very pretty

One of the biggest squares in Italy and Europe, with 3 sides of wonderful palaces and the fourth open on the sea. Breathtaking. Make sure to check if any event is up as all through the summer the square is used for concerts, events etc

We expected to be impressed; we were disappointed. It's a beautiful location, especially at night. However, we found the people to be rude and unfriendly, the food was uninspiring and the service unwelcoming, and the piazza was very dirty. We had a much better experience just over the border in Slovenia. I suggest you try Piran for a romantic, friendly,... More
