“So romantic and beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

The "Castello di Miramare" is a fascinating castle in Trieste, northern east of Italy. The entrance is located after the "passeggiata di Barcola", in an almost hidden place you might wish to have indications in order to find. A wonderful walk with a view on the natural maritime reserve leads you into the park of the castle, that in the warm summer nights hosts a "festival of lights and colors". I really suggest you do to stop and take pictures of the breathtaking views of the castle just from the outside and of the open sea. Go inside. For a small fee you'll turn back time. The interior is just wonderful, it preserves the original furnitures, part of which has been restored to its ancient splendor. A guided tour can help you discover all the small and big secrets that the Castle hides till the day of today, as well as the romantic and very sad story behind the construction of this amazing building and the reason why it was hardly inhabited by its owners. Stunning. At summer you can also go and spend some time i.e. reading a book in the shadows under a tree in the park. I wish I could go there every afternoon!!

Easy to get to by bus from Trieste. I really enjoyed looking around the Castle and grounds and looking back at the views of Trieste. Worth a visit.

“There is a really fantastic place in Trieste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

One day if you have been north of İtaly you have to see this castle...The Miramare worth a visit for the history of European...A classic Italian castle full of worn-out furnishings...
As its name indicates, it overlooks the sea from an enviable perch.

Stunning location right on a cliff above the sea, loved wandering through the castle and gardens and learning about the property's history. Not to be missed on a visit to Trieste!

“There a reason why it's so famous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

Despite the fact that the park is a little bit abandoned to itself due to lack of money, this place is definitely one of the attraction you must visit in trieste. It was actually the summer house for the Austrian emperor in 19th century. Now the castle is a museum, the ticket is really cheap and it definitely deserve a tour.
