I basically got lost walking from the Adriatico guest house to the ICTP Building and landed by the gardens of this really nice castle that offers a great overview over the gulf of Trieste. The gardens are really peaceful and shady but not very well maintained and there is a lot of construction (terrible new buildings being built) going on.... More

We reached the castle via the bus No 6 from the Trieste Centre. The whole route was nice and when we reached our destination, we met a picturesque little port. A little far away we found the entrance to the impressive gardens of Miramare Castle. When we passed through them, we saw the beautiful castle to emerge. Our tour to... More

After Vienna I had no idea about the Habsburg influence in and around Triëste. Very well preserved and a good insight in how aristocracy lived around 1860s. Especially our daughters 12 - 17 liked it a lot.

A very beautifull castle with a lot of small details and great park to walk and chill in shade, overlooking the nice little lakes and the greenery. The ice cream is also very good, the cafe in park is not really a good place to go (unfrendly personel), but otherwise its a great place to visit.

I took the number 6 bus from behind the train station to the last stop (€1.35) and entered the park via the rear entrance. Entrance to the park is free. There are no paper maps but plenty of signs and explanatory boards. There is some parking on the narrow road to the front entrance but it was rammed with cars... More

This is the 2nd time in my life visiting Castle Miramare, the first when I was 15 years old. This time I brought my family of 4. We took a tour of the Castle but did not have time to see the grounds. One can make a day of just the Castle and grounds, as well as visiting Trieste. The... More

I am a castle lover, and my favourites are always those with a lot of water around it, specially sea water. This castle is PERFECT for a wedding reception or for a gala dinner, as far as it is outdoors. the interior is well preserved and very good explained, even if you do not take the audioguide. The entry ticket... More

The castle was wonderful. The park free, only for the castle be paid. 8 euro/person. is not expensiv. The exhibiton well organized, every room you find the table with explanations. One part of the first floor dedicated to Amedeo of Savoy-Aosta.Touching story we know it. Everywhere you can made the photos, without flash. The garden is not like Schönbrunn. But... More

Wow this really is the castle you dream of in fairy tales! Stunning! Well worth a visit. The hardest thing was getting a bus ticket to this place! The number 6 bus runs from the station (right near the train station).you get tickets from a little newsagent booth in the train station or near the 6 bus stop. It was... More

The Castle of Miramare is amazing from the outside and the interior is even more so. The interior is almost all in wood - that includes floors, walls and ceilings. It's location makes it even more fascinating as it is surrounded by the sea. The surrounding park is good for a nice walk, however I believe it needs some maintenance.
