Very impressed by our visit. Got the audio guide for €2 which was well worth it, although quite. The museum at the end was very well layer out and learned a lot inside. Most things translated to English. Definitely recommend this while in Trieste. We took a bus number 8 from the central station to the stadium near the memorial.... More

The museum has lots of information. The audioguide is very well done and you learn many things. It is not easy to reach but there is a bus from downtown.

This was the most worthwhile activity we did while in Trieste. But first, getting there was an adventure. We took an #8 bus there but had no idea where to get off and after engaging five separate people on the bus, we only had to walk back four or five blocks past a stadium and past a large grocery store....

someone had told us to try and see this and we were so glad we went. A little far out of town so we had to drive but so worth it. Very well done, very somber, but educational.

We walked to this place from central Trieste (about 3 miles away) but you can catch a bus. Do not miss this ex-rice factory/nazi concentration camp/refugee settlement holding camp It's free, which was a real surprise. The lady at the information desk was really helpful and gave us a little guide in English. The rooms were dripping with history. The... More

site is classified as an Italian national monument. Being the remains of an old rice de-hulling factory which was used by Nazis as a concentration camp with murders committed. What remains now are the shell of the brick building as the crematoriums were destroyed by the Nazis. The atmosphere of the site cannot be replicated elsewhere. Worth visiting even though... More

This museum is a great activity for those in Trieste. The place and the history is fascinating. It is accessible and admission is free. The building was used as a concentration camp in Italy in World War II. There are several internal rooms that were used for prison cells. In one of them there is an exhibition where you can... More

This is an extraordinary place, an urban death camp, nestled in a suburb, which was both a transit camp and a death camp. Moving, evocative - should be a compulsory place for everyone to visit. A monument to a particularly dreadful time in history.

We went on a rainy day catching the number 10 bus from outside The Greek Orthodox Church, get off after the football station & the museum is behind the big supermarket. A well presented, thoughtful, profound place that honours the memory of those who suffered.

The only Nazi concentration camp in Italy. It is very well done, and very informative. You can get there on the #10 bus to Valmaura. The stop is across the street from a huge grocery store. You can also take the #21 bus to Valmaura. Ask the driver to let you know when you get to the stop. You then... More
