“An ordinary castle!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Outside of the castle there are ruins of a Roman temple. The castle hasn't any special thing. But, as Trieste has no other places to see, it is an attraction you must see.

“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

The climb may leave you out of breath if you are out of shape like me, but so will the view. It's especially beautiful as the sun is setting. Make the climb!

“Worth the climb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I remember the admission price was a bit steep, but there was a lot to see. By the end of our tour, we were a bit "museumed out." Nonetheless, the views of the sea and the city are beautiful, and the exhibits within the museum are extensive.

“Beautiful views.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We chose to take the tourist bus to the castle and to walk down la Scalla del Gigante. From the Castle there are gorgeous views over the beautiful city of Trieste. The walk through the castle is interesting as is the walk in the underground rooms full of Roman ruins. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful mosaics”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Amazing mosaic ceilings! For 1 euro you can light each area and take some great pictures. Bit of a hike up the hill, but worth it!
