Great bars and restaurants litter the piazza, beautifully lit in the evenings, and a warm place to be (except in January, when it's freezing).

Constructed directly on the shores of the gulf of Trieste as a showcase for the former Austrian government the piazza is the largest on water in Europe. The surrounding buildings are stupendous, in particular the former palace of the royal governors with it' gilded mosaics! Well worth a visit and a coffee at one of the outdoor café!

This is one of the biggest piazza in Itali, maybe in Europe. The view is really amazing, because it is beside the see, surrounded by grand old building, cafes, restaurants...

The scale and grandeur of the piazza and the ornate architecture are a dream. I was reminded of the best parts of Budapest.

Pretty great in size. Decorated buildings with splendid ornaments. On the Christmas time they have a Christmas tree and Jesus's birth scene. Supplemented by a couple of caffès where you can stop and have a cup of coffee with a view to Adriatic sea.

I have spent alot of time in this Piazza: we used it as meeting point, as place to drink a coffee or to have a special pistachio gelato. When Bora comes, you can finally take a picture of it being totaly empty cause no one or almost no one ventures outside.

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.
