“Beautiful Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Not to be missed. Absolutely beautiful location and a great audio tour. A little difficult to get to by public transportation, but very do-able. Tourist information was very helpful re: which bus to take and other people on the bus as well as the bus driver were great alerting us to our stop.

“Enjoyable visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Lovely scenery and interesting history to the building. Didn't get enough time to walk round the gardens, but will visit again. Affordable at only 6 euros to look round the house and gardens

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

This is a really nice place to visit, be careful of the parking cost if you drive there as many times it is full but you still need to pay. It pays however to walk along the water from Trieste and take in the water views

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

With the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War One in 2014, knowing that this is the last place the Archduke slept before his assassination in Sarajevo makes history come alive. All the Hapsburg money, and there was a lot of it, couldn't save him.
Although bus schedules change, take the number 6 bus from the train station, making sure you board in the direction of Miramar or you will end up at the end of the line in the wrong direction like we did. Take number 6 to the end of the line and walk past the marina to a very new and smooth path up the hill to the Miramar. It is like walking to Heaven.

“An Intimate Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Surrounded on three sides by sea, Miramare is tiny as castles go with captivating views, hillside park and very interesting collection revealing the lives of those who have lived there.
