There was no crowd in the castle, and after paying the admission fee we understood why. The view was wonderful and so were many of the rooms. But. The exhibition was mostly in Italian and exposed randomly chosen objects, letters and cards, seemingly without any theme. A room dedicated to the great war was an exception. There were many (unloved)... More

This grand residence is still occupied by the owner. The princess who owns this castle lives on the front half of the estate (20 rooms). Many of the couple's belongings decorate the rooms open to viewing. Many of the rooms dedicated to the interests of the husband, so lots of antique musical instruments. Great views of the sea and ruins... More

My father was based at the Castle 63 years ago during his National Service. This was his first visit to the Castle since leaving the army. It was a very sentimental journey but interesting. The Castle exhibits show its history over the many years of war and peace, to the many different occupations over the decades. Very interesting if you... More

It's a very well preserved castle with a real prince and princess living on top. There are three floors to explore with rooms and items and a beautiful garden to relax. What is breathtaking is the view from the balcony where you can see the Adriatic Sea up to Croatia. Don't miss it!

Just a few minutes from Trieste, this castle, that could have easily come from some fantasy novel, takes you back in time and provides amazing scenic views of the Trieste

This is a beautiful castle, in the little town of Duino, close to the seafront. When you're visiting Trieste make sure to make a stop in Duino and visit this ancient roman tower. The castle stands on a cliff with an amazing breath taking view over the sea.

from the ancient Roman tower to the ruins of the former castle, from Dante to Rilke's elegies, from the imposing castle right in the cliffs to the sad story of the White Lady turned into stone...just let yourself go and centuries will be in your hands
