Castello di Duino is a marvellous fortification from the fourteenth-century. It is a must-see attraction if you are in the region. You can visit the castle inside, the bunker under the building and you can also enjoy the breathtaking view from the tower with one ticket. Do not miss to visit the Old Castle too. It is about 10 minutes... More

Reaching this place is a bit of an adventure by itself. The castle is located about an hour's bus journey from the City's Centre. The frequency of the buses is also quite low (about one an hour). I rose up bright and early to catch the bus (I didn't even have time to stop for breakfast), and caught the bus... More

When your in Duino or Sistiana, you just have to visit this castle. The place is outstanding. Also go to see the old castle ruins. The views from there are breathtaking.

Duino or Devin is a private castle with more attractions. It has very picturesque position high above the Adriatic see. Owners arranged nice gardens around the medieval fortress. Even old castle was rearranged and some new buildings set near the old stone tower. Castle is (main part of it) open for visitors. They also organize different exhibitions. I think that... More

Castle of Duino is in private property of the Thurn und Taxis family, and is owned by Prince Alexander and Princess Marie's great-grandson, Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park and you must pay entrance. If you look closely over glamor and beauty... More

Duino is not the typical destination, but we did not wish to stay in Trieste. Too big and noisy. We prefer quieter places. And discovered this Castle. Rarely do we visit one. This one is worth every penny. Destroyed by the Italians Army in 1915, re-built in 1925. Given by the King of Austria to Thurn und Taxis. Who later... More

First off, you should visit this a beautiful summer day (if you can), as the views are probably the most important thing on this visit :). The castle itself is nice and very well taken care off. Some of the rooms are very interesting and there is a nice garden to enjoy your coffee in. You have enough to visit... More

The castle is located on the rock overlooking the entire gulf of Trieste. The veiew is speechless from both high tower and some terraces. The gardens are fantastic. There are about 20 rooms to visit inside the castle with some authentic furniture and amazing collection of old musical instruments dating even back to 1500s. One of the interesting items is...

Visiting a castle is, in my opinion, not the most exciting thing. However, Castello Di Duino is very beautiful. The best part of the whole visit is the view. The castle itself is not the greatest castle to visit, but it's ok for what it is and the view makes up for everything.

Even though this castle is not as old as Miramare (closer to Trieste) it warrants a visit. The views are great and there is often a nice art display.
