Trieste, the largest of the Adriatic ports, is not only known for its numerous cultural and historical monuments, palaces and churches, but is also regarded as a favorite shopping destination. On our excursion to Italy, we explore the diversity of Trieste’s center and visit the enchanted Miramare Castle.
There is something of interest for everyone in Trieste: the magnificent architecture, the comfortable restaurants, the Italian cafeterias, and the numerous shops with a wide offer. On our walk, we witness the whole array of sights, from the Roman ruins to modern establishments. The heart of Trieste is the monumental seafront main square surrounded by magnificent historic palaces. In the old part of Trieste we walk up to the imposing Baroque parish church and discover numerous monuments from the early periods on the Hill of St. Giusto. It is crowned with a mighty fortress and a Romanesque Cathedral, adorned with glittering mosaics and vivid frescoes. On our way to the lively Ponterosso Canal we pass the impressive remains of the Roman amphitheater. In your free time you will have the chance to explore the city by yourself, do some shopping and have a break for lunch.
Just a few minutes’ drive away, we find perched on a cliff above the sea the fairytale-like castle of Miramare. We will stroll around the amazing gardens, visit its little harbor guarded by an enchanting sphinx, and you will also have free time to see the lavish interior of this dreamy residence of Maximilian, a member of the Habsburg imperial family on your own.
