Our destination was to go to Trieste but definitely found it to be unfriendly to cars. After trying to find a parking place for 30+ minutes we gave up and decided to head south to Muggia. A small town on the harbor it was a pretty little town with lots of character. A nice and easy place to walk around... More

Last coastal village before Slovenia, this small fishing village packs a punch when it comes to social mingling with the local cafes and shops, with its small line of nicely modernized beaches along the stretch to Slovenia this village is definitely worth a visitwith Trieste to its North and the largest Slovenian coastal city Koper within a short driving distance...

Take the ferry from Trieste on a sunny day and the journey is half the pleasure. By the time you have walked around town and had lunch or an icecream it is time to catch the next ferry back, but it is a nice trip and worth doing.

Sit down and try good italian coffee or an ice cream. A bit higher from the square, there is also a... More

We took the ferry from Trieste ( ferry stop located opposite Savoia hotel) which takes approx 30mins and includes great views over the bay of Trieste. Return ticket costs 6.90 euros (we were told you can only buy a return so not sure why the price for single ticket was also displayed on the timetable at the boarding point) and... More

On a nice sunny day this is a fun excursion from Trieste. The ferry has open seating and enclosed. It takes about 1/2 hour each way. Eat or have coffee in the main square of Muggia.
