What to do in Trieste in a day?

by Fugu

We're planning on visiting my relatives in Slovenia end of May-beginning of June (after the premeet) and will of course also visit Triste for a day, since my relatives live on the border with Italy and we'll continue on to Venice from Trieste and from there back to Finland.

So what should/can we visit in Trieste for a day with then an 2 and a half year old? Thanks.

Actually, with a 2 1/2 year old I think you should take the tramway. It's a fascinating one. It starts downtown as ordinary tram, is then pulled up by funicular "shunting locos" up the hill and then runs like a normal light rail train again.

musts in Trieste are: San Giusto's castle and the Cathedral , in a little hill in city center, where you can see a beautiful view; just down the castle there is the Roman Theatre, close the old town; after five minutes walk, you'll find Unità d'Italia Square, one of the nicest squares in Italy, with neoclassic buildings that overlook the sea. From here you cn walk along the see till the Audace Pier or the Victory Lighthouse.
Miramare Castle is wonderful, but it's about 5 kms from the center...
Hope this helps
Ciao, Marco

I agree about Miramare - its botanical parks should be very lovely in May.

Hi Keti -
We have a member from the US who has been living/teaching school in Trieste for the past year-and-a half or so. She's really nice and I'm sure she'd help - when she next checks in! Busy lady...

Anyway, you might drop her an email???

Travel Tips for Trieste

Cycling from Trieste to Koper

by MattyBrown

Trieste is a cracking little place, we stopped there for 4 days while my ship visited with the rest of the NATO force.

loads of nice little bars and as in most countries an Irish bar !! the food is excellent and the prices are very resonable indeed.

I took 7 people with me cycling from Trieste to Koper in Slovenia the day the ship sailed to meet it back into port in Koper, there really wernt any cycle routes as such and finidng the info on the net proved to be a nightmere.

However in true Naval style i managed to Cuff a route, cycling through trieste town centre following the signs for Slovenia. Then we managed to navigate ono the AutoBahn NOT RECOMMENDED BY ANY MEANS!!

we got off at the earliest opportunity to follow a sign called Muggai. From there we picked up a cycle path called D8 which took us all the way to Koper.

We took our passports but didnt need to show them on the border control point.

The Gulf of Trieste

by Arcenciel

In the Gulf of Trieste, the island of the sun, Grado, with its climate, its beaches, the historical buildings and hotels fin- de- siècle.
You can reach island Grado from Trieste by sea line (tickets about 8 euros retour) The Gulf of Trieste between Venetian Coast and Istrian peninsula...with its mediterranean climate and swimming facilities from May to October....

At the end of XIX century this coastline, from Trieste to Grado, became the smart beach of the Hapsburgian Empire.

Canale Grande

by gmg61

Once, in the northern outskirts of Trieste there were many salt mills.
In 1732 there was the need for new land to build the new part of the city and for the new harbour, so that the salt mills were abandoned and filled up, with the exception of that part that is now called "Canale Grande", surrouinded by nice buldings and used mainly as a port for small boats.
The canal was bigger in the past and was also partially filled up. They say that close to the church of Sant' Antonio, at the end of the canal, a sunken ship still remains under the concrete.

Faro della Vittoria

by gmg61

It's a lighthouse but also a national monument.
It was built with many difficulties between 1923 and 1927 on a project by the italian architect Arduino Berlam.
The lighthouse is majestic: 68 mt tall, its peak is 118 mt over the sea level; it can be seen from 35 miles away and its weight is more than 8.500 tons.
On the top of jit there is the statue of the "winfeg vitory" (Nike).
The whol,e comples is also a monument to all the soldiers died during the WW I

Oliver The Parrot

by Carnation

Squawk squawk Meet Oliver the resident parrot. Very bright and intelligent and even talks. Cris (Banjo) was feeling decidedly nervous and tried to make friends by putting out his hand for Oliver to sit on.
