They were preparing for a concert so views were somewhat obstructed. Gorgeous at night. Fascinating history. Wonderful day and night.

Beautiful place with old buildings directly at the see. I enjoyed an Iron Maiden concert there, which was an amazing combination and atmosphere.

This is magnificent experience, piazza, view, seagulls. My suggestion is to sit in one of the many restaurants and to enjoy in view and off course don't forget to try popular drink aperol spritz and feel like real italian.

Trieste has not been Italian all that long. For centuries it was the only port for the Austro-Hungarian Empire. The central city looks more Austrian than Italian. There are shops, restaurants, and entertainment on and near the square.

Really cheap flight form Vlc to Trieste. It is the perfect combination to start a trip enjoying the croatian coast. Trieste surprised me because the square and streets are so clean.The food restaurants located in the square is delicious and around 15€.

There are plenty of bars and restaurants here. In the evening the place is very vibrant and alive. The square holds outdoor concerts and events.

Magnificent place, especially in the evening lights. What you miss in Venice(and remember that Trieste was a part of the Venetian influence area, which you Can observe many places) is open spaces. Here you've Got it. A huge Well composed open space the size of San Marco and not at all crowded.

The piazza is surrounded by buildings on three sides the fourth opening to the sea! Beautiful historical buildings. Marble floor a couple of bars. Walk to the molo audace before strolling to the best ice cream in the surrounding Jazzin.
