“Impressive location and very warm hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

The location of this B&B is magnificent for visiting Trieste and sorroundings, away from the noise and the smog of the city, but still very well connected. And with wonderful views and walking tracks just around the corner. If you want to explore Joyce, Hemingway and Svevo literary journeys, that's the place to start. The family running the business are also very welcoming and caring of all your needs. A very pleasant surprise.

Extremely friendly and helpful hosts in a romantic villa dating from Austro-Hungarian imperial days. The beautiful garden with a large swimming pool is well-cared for. Convenient public transport into the city center is right in front of the villa. Unfortunately the Tram was out of order (but is being repaired) so we had to take the bus. Absolutely recommendable.

A beautiful old house, full of history, with beautiful gardens. Fulvia and her family are utterly charming and extremely helpful.

The house itself is right opposite the funicular tram which whisks you into Trieste in ten minutes.

We'll be staying here next time we visit Trieste.

Villa Arbori is the best B&B I ever visited. The owners are "molto simpatico" and helpful in every possible way. The rooms are large and comfortable. The garden and swimming pool are wonderful. Connections to Trieste and the surrounding area are excellent. I thoroughly recommend it.

I had a comfortable stay in Vila Albori. The host family is very nice and smiley and the whole atmosphere in the house is warm and familial. The room and the whole house are very clean and well designed for short period accommodation. The villa is situated in the centre of Vila Opicina, but 5 km distance from Trieste. The landscape you can see on the way to Trieste is amazing. I would highly recommend this place and I would happily return if I have another conference to participate in Trieste.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Villa Albori. It is an optimal location for visiting Trieste and the surrounding area. This historic villa has lots of charm and a stunning garden. The owner is very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast was above average given the usual Italian B&B fare of a pastry and coffee, or just as often, nothing. Breakfast is taken in a lovely sun room overlooking the garden. Just across the street is the historic Opicina tram that takes you on a scenic ride straight to the center of Trieste. We stayed on the main floor which had two single beds. The room was spacious, featured its own entrance to the garden and had lots of light. The only drawback was the quality of mattresses, which could use some updating for better comfort. I would highly recommend the Villa Albori.
