Beautiful

This is a beautiful area! I wasn't super impressed by Trieste as a city, but I loved the surrounding karst. I can really recommed to walk the Giordano Cottur walk which goes along an old railway track. Lovely!

It was really nice to engage with the landscape after a month in Rome.

Caught the weekend 41 bus at the right side inner circle in front of the train station. Bought the tickets at the Tabacci inside the station. The ride alone was exhilarating! As an earlier reviewer said, after ten o'clock the trails start getting populated.

See if you can get a map at the info point in Piazza dell'Italia Unita before you go. The trail signs are in Italian and Slovenian. There seems to be a major trail system this is a part of. You can hike from the Val Rosandra over to Trieste, and to some other towns also connect.

Muggia is worth the trip. If you're looking for ancient, go to Rome; old, and kinda cool, this end of the country is where you want to go.

Wear good trail shoes for loose rocky footing. Many were using walking poles, even young people.

unexpectedly lovely hike
Aug 2018
I was at Trieste for a conference and initially planned on taking the bus to Triglav for a hike, unfortunately, my schedule didn't allow for it but the hike at Val Rosandra Reserve made up for it! It was only a 30 minutes bus ride from the central station. I was there on a Friday afternoon and only met a few other hikers along the way. A true hidden gem!

MUST VISIT WHILE IN TRIESTE!
Sep 2018 • Friends
This place became my favorite place to visit in Trieste! The perfect getaway from the city noise or just to connect with nature. It is easy to get there. Take bus #41 in via Carducci 5, it comes every 30 to 40 m. Make sure to go early in the morning. It used to take one at 7:40 am to be back at noon. That is the best time because locals visit the place starting at 10 am so basically it is empty in the morning. Totally recommended for big or small groups and suitable for picnics.

Do not be afraid and visit when its bora time, I can assure you, you will have fun! During summer is even better!

Unexpectedly wild nature on the outskirts of big city

It's easy to get to Val Rosandra. But first, get the hiking map from the tourist office on the piazza Unita. I took bus 40 from the train station but I'm told bus 41 is also an option. Get off at Bagnoli della Rosandro Teatro. This is where all the trails start. You can choose from not too difficult to quite challenging. I opted for the most demanding, the Vertikala (signposted by blue circles). You need to be in good condition and not have fear of heights. I followed the trail all the way to S. Lorenzo Jezero and descended by first following part of trail 1 and then the old Railway track and part of trail 2. This loop took me 6 hours. You can also opt for the easy hike and follow trail 2. This will let you take in most of the sights in 2 to 3 hours. Main highlights of the area: magnificent deciduous forests, great vista's, looking down on S. Maria in Saris, walking along the old railway track. I was there on a weekday in Mazy and did not meet a single soul.

Great day out!

Travelling through Trieste to Croatia, stumbled across this place on google maps. I was stunned, such natural beauty.

After visiting I could only recommend to everyone who’s near Trieste. The waterfall is spectacular, you can swim under which is awesome! There is also a small cave you can climb down, it was spectacular (picture below). The cave is hard to find and you get cover in goat poo but so worth it, very special.

The walk is not too demanding but would recommend appropriate footwear. From Trieste the 40/41 bus is the bus to get from outside the train station the bus is €2.50 return and runs like every hour. If you have a car there is parking! What a place it is!

There is a small village (5-10) houses with a little restaurant which was delicious, proper home cooking and proper Italian food!

Hidden gem
Jul 2017 • Friends
What an amazing place to go hinking in the mountains! If you're staying in Trieste, you should definitely make a daytrip to this hidden reserve. The hiking trails are well accessible for everyone, even with children, exept for wheelchairs or prems. If you're a bit of an adventurer, you can go to both the top, as the foot of the waterfall. Don't underestimate the walk to the foot of the waterfall, because the mountains are very steep. Halfway the walking trails, you'll pass the little village Botazzo (Botac), where you can have a drink (the cheapest beer you'll find in the area!).
I recommend everyone to go see for yourself how beautiful this place is!

Charming little mountains
Oct 2016
Very Mediterranean place - mountains (400 m height, but real mountains) just near the sea. A pleasant area, ideal for a walk. However, be prudent, some parts of the way are not very easy. Try to identify the fragments of the Roman pipes, for the water supply of the ancient Trieste.

The lowest refuge in Italy.

It's home to the the lowest mountain refuge in Italy (82 msm). Nice place for a walk and/or lunch or a snack.
