“Interesting area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This area is very interesting, as it provides many different scenics - view of the Alps and mountains (in winter covered with snow), Carso hills descending steeply to the Adriatic Sea, landmarks of Duino Castle, Miramare Castle, Faro della Vittoria lighthouse, Trieste, and, in the opposite direction, Monfalcone industrial sights, and then natural reserve of the Isonzo (Soca) River.

“Adriatic Delight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

There is a gorgeous view of the Gulf of Trieste with azure blue water and golden brown hills. What a lovely spot to sit and have some local red wine while watching the calm waters of the Adriatic.

“Nice View, Pleasant Stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

It's big, it's pretty. It's also still got a lot of the old industrial port visible, but that's ok with me. Probably nicer in summer when it's green and not so windy (che vento!!). I would not go to Trieste just to see this gulf (go to Napoli or Cinqueterra or Ancona instead). But it paints a wonderful backdrop to Trieste...which IS a city worth visiting.
