Lovely canal with colorful boats surrounded by restaurants. Pretty at day but most beautiful by night.

Perfect stroll before sitting down for a meal. Both sides of canal have lots of restaurant to chose from. Great view of sunset and architecture, plus people give a lively feel.

It is in the main area of the city, nothing really to look at it is just a boat canal off the sea, If you walk around Trieste you will pass it several times.

The water is so clear that on a bright and sunny day you can see the reflections of the beautiful architecture like a mirror... plenty of coffee shops and restaurants, including gelato shops which were a treat. Lovely place to stroll through if visiting Trieste.

In our one day visit, we passed this canal both day and night--very central. It's well worth a pause at a coffee shop to experience the quietness.

You cannot fail to walk in this area and it is picturesque. Many of the main Piazzas are within close proximity and there are a number of good restaurants and bars nearby, including those right on the canal. Sit and enjoy an Aperol spritz!!
