“Small Fishing Village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

Took a ferry from Trieste to Muggia, small village, nothing to outstanding about it, at least there arn't too many tourists there but it was nice to see, has a main square with a few cafes there to eat and drink if you want.

“Great place to get away from it all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

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 the ferry runs frequently during the day. It takes about half an hour to stroll round the village which in places resembles Venice ( buildings adorned with motifs of Venetian lions and the canal filled with boats certainly adds to this feeling). We had lunch at the co-operative restaurant overlooking the sea, which was good value for money and it was great to find out that the fish was caught the same day and the profits were going back to the fishermen who worked so hard to provide our meal! The place was peaceful and looked amazing in the October sun. Three hours will be plenty to see the sights, have a meal and a stroll. Totally worth it

“Nice ferry ride and little town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

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.
