The Cathedral has been redecorated in recent years and so reflects a variety of styles from the different centuries of its existence. Quite fitting for a city that has 'changed hands' over the centuries. A hike up the stairs to the bell tower gives great...More

We visited this cathedral as part of our Italy tour, and without a doubt it was one of the most memorable locations for me. The jaw-dropping beauty of the church and the history that goes with it was a real treat for me. If religious...More

It takes some effort to reach the church on foot as it is on the top of a steep hill, but worth taking the hike. While there are more dramatically beautiful churches in Italy, this one is definitely worth seeing if in Trieste. As a...More

The cathedral itself is free to enter and if you are interested in churches and church architecture, (as I am), then it’s a must see. The most interesting aspect lies in the fact that the present cathedral is a “composite” of two earlier churches. There...More

It is a long walk up the hill from the Roman amphitheater to the San Giusto area, but well worth the effort. Four items stand-out: 1. The views of the city are impressive, 2. The cattedrale is unique. It is an asymmetric blend of two...More

Reaching the Cathedral and the grounds does involve a steep walk if you decide to take the time to walk. You can of course take a taxi which would cost about 8 euros from the city or there is a bus which costs about 1.50...More
