We sailed out of this pretty port and were not disappointed! Very pretty and clean unlike a lot of the other Italian ports. It is about an hour and a half drive from central Rome so accessible if you want to sightsee that area. It is a little closer to the airport.

Unlike most of Trieste the old quarter provides a different aspect so walk the old streets and go back in time. The architecture is different and so are some of the cobbled streets that appear to go way back. Walk up to the castle (steep) and see some of the more interesting parts of town.

Take time to get lost in these wonderful, shady back streets - antique stores, independent shops, bars and eateries.

Our lodging, on Via del Pesce, which only one block long, is indicative of the old quarter. It's like a rabbit warren, tiny small side shafts coming together in small plazas that then move into large piazzas. This is not just a tourist trap, this is home for most of the city dwellers. There is no green space in the... More

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!
