We got to Castello Miramare via the hop-on hop-off tourist bus but there is a local bus that takes you there too. I visited it in 1974 and it was just as beautiful as I remembered. Walking along the foreshore you see in the distance this imposing white building built over the sea. The gardens are beautiful and there is a cafe under a very long pergola where you can have some lunch or just a Spritz and enjoy your surroundings. Allow at least half a day there to just wander around and relax.

What a garden! yes I mention this as you need to take a picnic, sit in the garden, relax as you are on a small hill overlooking the sea. Then stroll around the grounds, enjoy the sea air and then take a walk into the castle...

I visited the castle when in Trieste for two days. The craftsmanship on the inside is beautiful and not as ostentatious as other 'great homes' I've seen. I strongly suggest getting the audio guide - very information and added to the experience. The grounds are a great place for walking.
A word of caution: I got off the bus where I'd been told to (after the two tunnels), but the gates were locked. If a groundskeeper hadn't unlocked the gate for me, I would not have known where to go. It wasn't until I was leaving that I found the way via the seaside walkway.
