Trieste Infopoint Information
Yet, nowadays Trieste undergoes a major change as to its tourist performances, since it becomes more and more popular among those traveling for pleasure or among business travelers. Thus, the true potential of the city is rapidly unveiled, providing Trieste the occasion to make the best of its tourist assets. Once again the place regains its old fame, such as it was ascertained by sundry literates and artists, like James Joyce and Sigmund Freud.
Short History of Trieste
Long before the Roman rule , Trieste was populated by the Carni, by the Histri, and by the Veneti, the dominion of whom lasted for millenniums. From Antiquity to the Middle Ages, Trieste underwent a constant development, thriving as a result of being a significant geographic strategical point, at the crossing of several civilizations. The city gained a multicultural feature during the rule of the Habsburg Empire ; however, as from 1920, when Trieste was annexed to Italy, the city lost much of its economic and cultural significance. During World War Two, the city was the only unfortunate place in Italy to host a concentration camp, and except for certain intervals when the city was estranged from the Italian administration, it became a definite part of Italy in 1954.
Accommodation in Trieste
The historic center of Trieste hosts a series of hotels that can easily be classified as above mid range establishments. The prices practiced by such establishments parallel the quality services provided by them. However, hostels and camping sites are just as recommendable for budget travelers, despite the fact that most of them are located in less central arias of the city or even outside Trieste. All in all, the city is able to welcome tourists regardless of their financial possibilities and limitations.
Italian gastronomy at Trieste
In terms of cuisine , Trieste hosts a large number of eating venues serving an incredible mix of specialties which, given the overall multicultural air of the city, reflect the many influences received in time from Italy, Austria and Slavic people. Thus, sea food is one of the main ingredients of which plenty of dishes are cooked. Brodetto (a fish soup) and flavored pilchards are worth noting, whereas the goulash and the large range of strudels represent the Austrian culinary heritage . With respect to drinks, one should know that Trieste has been having a special relation to coffee since the beginning of the 18th century, when it became the most important coffee port in the Mediterranean Sea.
Tourist Attractions and Objectives in Trieste
The Trieste Cathedral , the Mariano Temple and the San Silvestro Basilica count as the most significant religious establishments located in the city, whereas the Riccardo Arch and the Roman Theater belong to the historic heritage of the place. Other important landmarks refer to the Miramare Castle , to the Victory Lighthouse, the Colle Capitolino and to the Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia . The Little Berlin, the Joyce Museum, the Museum of Oriental Art, the Museum of History and Art, the Revoltella Museum and the Museum of the Sea are the most popular museums and galleries to be found in Trieste.
Events and Festivals in Trieste
The Trieste Film Festival , the International Short Film and Debut Works Festival and the Festival of Latin American Cinema are, obviously, events celebrating the cinematographic phenomenon, whereas La Bavisela , the Trieste Challenge, and the Barcolana , count as the most significant sports events hosted by the city. However, the Habitat, the Olio Capitale, FEST and the Operetta Festival are just as worth attending as the many other events the city is replete with.

Trieste is the capital of the far north-eastern region of Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia. For a long time this major port was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and although the town is now part of Italy, it retains a not-quite-Italian feel. The Slovenian border is only a few miles away, curving round to the north and east. Coach services run from the centre of Trieste to Slovenia and to Croatia. The Slovenian language is sometimes spoken around Trieste, and many restaurant menus and guides are in Slovenian and German, as well as Italian.
There aren't a huge number of 'must-see' tourist attractions in Trieste, but it's a pleasant place to spend a day or two. It makes a good staging post if you're travelling onwards into Slovenia or towards Venice or to the mountains. It's a good destination for those with children (caves and castles to visit), and there are several scientific-themed museums in the area. The city's many neo-classical buildings and wide, planned road network are reminders of the former importance of the port, and although they're ageing somewhat, the town still has a solid and respectable air.
A good place to begin your visit is the tourist information office in Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia, where visitors can equip themselves with informative leaflets and maps. Ask the staff for maps showing both central Trieste and the surrounding area - they are also a good source of information on transport and trips out of town. You can explore central Trieste on foot, but buses are useful to reach outlying sites.
Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia is a large and elegant outdoors space opposite the waterfront, with some impressive buildings, a curious fountain and several cafes. Over the road, the old docks are fairly quiet, offering interesting strolls beside the sea and out along a wide quay. It's worth a glance at some of the old maritime buildings, whose once-impressive architecture is unloved and decaying.
Heading uphill from the waterfront you'll reach the town's fortress, the Castello di San Giusto . Sadly, at the time of writing the castle is closed for restoration, but good views can still be enjoyed from a memorial garden outside the walls. Just below the castle walls is the ancient Cattedrale di San Giusto . The cathedral houses the remains of the San Giusto (St. Justus or Just), and is a lovely building, dating back to the amalgamation of two different churches in the fourteenth century. The site is much older, as a Roman temple is believed to have stood here. Odd pieces of statuary and fragments of fresco are reminders of the site's antiquity. Some more complete frescoes can be glimpsed through the doorway of the adjoining chapel (which is reserved for prayer). Bring a couple of 50 cent pieces to illuminate the cathedral's lovely old mosaics of San Giusto and of the Madonna.
Taking the road downhill opposite the cathedral, you'll come to a picturesque Roman arch in a small square, and to the grand Baroque Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore . Alongside this imposing church is a much smaller and older one, San Silvestro . The exterior of this small Romanesque church is attractive, but it's hard to see the interior unless you come when the church is open for an occasional mass. Taking the flight of steps down from these two churches and turning right will bring you to Trieste's Roman theatre . This dates to the 1st century AD and is sufficiently well-preserved to give a sense of how it would have looked. The theatre can be admired from the street, and is echoed on the other side by the curving modern architecture of the Questura (police station).
One of Trieste's most vaunted sights is the Castello Miramare , a nineteenth-century castle of white Istrian stone perched above the Adriatic. The castle is located about five miles outside Trieste and can be reached by bus number 36 from the railway station. Both the castle and its grounds are open to the public all year round.
Trieste has a small airport, called Aeroporto Friuli-Venezia Giulia , which is served by Ryanair with budget flights from the UK. A public bus service (line number 51) runs from the airport to Trieste bus station, which is alongside the railway station. You can buy tickets from the airport's post office, or from an automatic vending machine. A single ticket costs 3, buses are generally half-hourly on weekdays, and the journey takes approximately 50 minutes. Look out for Castello Miramare on your right as you journey along the coast.
Trieste is linked with the rest of Italy by train. Venice is a two-hour train ride away.

A unique atmosphere can be felt in trieste, as a border town, a melting pot of at least three cultures: latin, slavic and german.
It has a retro flavour of its own, between historic literary cafés and monuments from the past as an important city of the Habsburg Empire. Trieste is the ideal destination for those who love locations rich in a complex and troubled history that has bewitched, harboured, and nurtured writers and other intellectuals. The environment is diverse, with an international outlook. A place to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.

Discovering trieste, a border city with an international soul.
Trieste is truly on the fringes of many things: three different cultural settings, a meeting of the East and West, the sea and the inland area with a thousand histories, encounters, and conflicts. A true gateway, a city of transition, far away from the big crowds. Its many events which took place within its borders and its alternating fortunes as a key strategic point have profoundly influenced it. Italo Svevo was born here, and the name already says a lot about the mixture of styles.

Elegant villages and natural beauty An elegant city in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Pordenone encompasses a quiet historic centre rich in historical and artistic beauty. Stroll down Corso Vittorio Emanuele in the shadow of the arcades, among the longest in Europe. Stop for a coffee in Piazza Cavour, the heart of city life, and admire the facades of the Palazzo Comunale and St Mark's Cathedral. It is impossible not to notice its Gothic-style bell tower, a full 72 metres high. On the outskirts of Pordenone, visit some of the most beautiful villages in northern Italy, such as Sacile, on the Livenza river, and Polcenigo, surrounded by greenery. In San Vito al Tagliamento you can admire what remains of the medieval village, such as the moat and the frescoed castle. For a relaxing moment away from the city, head for Lake Barcis. This corner of paradise, set in the Friulian Dolomites Natural Park, is the perfect place for those who enjoy sports such as sailing, surfing and canoeing, as well as hiking and mountain biking. And lastly, to enjoy typical Friulian cuisine, try the Frico with polenta and salami with vinegar: truly traditional flavours.
From the Alps to the sea, exploring mosaics and Baroque villas Views of the Carnic Alps, villages on gentle slopes, historic villas, lakes and forests, Roman and Lombard ruins and the golden beaches of Lignano Sabbiadoro: all this and more lies in the province of Udine, in the heart of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Walking through the historic centre of the capital, which branches out around the castle, you will find the Loggia del Lionello, the Clock Tower, the works of Tiepolo and the Tina Modotti Gallery, dedicated to the great photographer who was born here. Immersed in a large park is the Baroque-style Villa Manin, the residence of the last doge of Venice. You can admire nature is at its best in the thousand-year-old Tarvisio forest, in Val d’Arzino and by Lake Cornino. Don’t miss the villages of Spilimbergo, with its splendid 15th-century Palazzo Dipinto, San Daniele del Friuli, to taste its famous prosciutto, the star fort of Palmanova, and Cividale del Friuli, with its Lombard ruins and the famous Devil’s Bridge. If you love fortresses, we recommend visiting Villalta Castle. To dive into history, head for Aquileia, a very well-preserved Roman city. You’re sure to love the archaeological museum, the Roman Forum, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, with its mosaic floor and the Crypt of Frescoes.
The “city in the trenches” on the border between the Latin and Slavic worlds A melting pot of Romance, Slavic and Germanic cultures on the border with Slovenia, Gorizia has several historical sites. We recommend visiting the Castle, an 11th-century fortification subsequently extended in the 17th century, and the Palazzo Coronini Cronberg in the town centre, in the old village of Grafenberg. Surrounded by a picturesque, romantic park, the building has 15 furnished rooms. To understand the spirit of this “city in the trenches”, visit the Museum of the Great War of Gorizia, in the evocative basements of the 16th-century Dornberg and Tasso Houses. It offers an invaluable testimony to the war events of 1917, covering the defeat at Caporetto, the victory on the Piave and finally the Italian-Austrian armistice of 1918. Three kilometres from the city is the Luciano Viatori botanical garden, also called the Azalea Garden, as 500 varieties of azaleas flourish there, alongside rhododendrons, rare roses, camellias and magnolias. The garden is easy to explore thanks to a well-designed system of paths and wooden walkways, for an enchanting hour-long walk. The ideal time to visit is in spring, between March and June, when the flowers bloom.
