You need to take time to stroll through this area of the City. It is well worth a visit and should not be missed when you visit Trieste

Having been to all the usual tourist destinations in Italy and loving it we decided to see what Trieste was like. It's a lovely little town and very non toursity! The little streets are cute and the place has a nice relaxing feel to it. Lovely to wander around and see what you find. Definitelt well worth a visit.

This is one of those cities where you think you are headed in the right direction and find out later that you are way off track, no problemo, there is plenty to see and tonnes of little bars and eateries so won't won't die of thirst or hunger. Just keep ambling!

Well , as far as "old" quarters go in a place like Italy, I would put this one down to being "old" but not that impressive as far as buildings go. Put it in Australia and it would be REALLY old but here it does not impress as much as Genoa, etc etc. BUT, we have been here a week... More

It was great to wander through the old quarter looking at secondhand shops and old buildings. We had a pizza at a cafe and sat outside and watched the world go by. I am returning at the end of 2014 to explore it further.

I was taken through this rebuilt area and I am in love with Trieste. It is not visited by many and I am scratching my head wondering why? It is history all over, of course what city in Europe is not, but this is truly special as it is well preserved and the restoring going on is a wonder in... More

For me the Old Quarter is a quiet and relaxing area. Mainly because these are pedestrian streets. From Piazza Unita to Piazza Attilio Hortis (or even to Piazza Venezia), Via Cavana and some crossing and parallel streets are the place you miss from the other parts of Trieste. These really old houses and narrow streets brings you the Italian atmosphere.

This is perfect place just to walk by, sit and enjoy. Best way to enjoy this quarter is to have a coffee, ice cream, cake or pizza in some of the little caffés or restaurants. It doesn t shock for your budget, and you will live one days as genuine italians...
