“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Trieste is such a hidden gem, none of my friends have ever visited this city but hopefully my enthusiastic review of its attractions will convince them to go! The main piazza is simply stunning, the buildings have been beautifully renovated and apart from government offices & tourist info point also house delightful cafes. The piazza overlooks the bay of Trieste and looks amazing at any time of the day. Having spent three days in Trieste I saw it at dusk, midday and in the evening and each time was mesmerised by its imposing presence. Have coffee there on Sunday morning when the locals enjoy reading their papers and any day of the week in the evening, when the citizens spill out to have a drink or two (which are cheap for such a touristy spot, glass of Prosecco costed 4euros, very reasonable)

“Where it's at in Trieste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

One of the great people-watching squares in Europe. There are grander sqauares, like St Peter's and Red Square, but this stands out as a people's square. The focal point of the city, there are kids playing, dogs being walked, sitting in cafees, people promenading. It's not as packed and active as the main square in Marrakesh but it's a lot smarter.

“The main Square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Beautiful square with stunning architecture. Particularly when lit up in the evening. A bustling central square looking out across the Bay of Trieste. Much begging in the square, but generally not by the locals

“Stunning at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

This is a great place to watch people. It is lit up at night with so many families and people strolling around. You can see the ships out at sea all lit up, too. It reminded me of Red Square in Moscow.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Interesting architecture and spaces with good food and cafes nearby. Nice during the day and night. Be sure to walk out on the pier, especially near the end of the day.
