What to visit in Trieste in one day
Trieste, one of Italy’s most important ports
Trieste is a city located on the border between Italy and Slovenia, with a privileged position on the Adriatic Sea and a rich cultural and artistic history.
Here are some of the main attractions not to be missed during a one-day visit to Trieste.
GULF OF TRIESTE
An idyllic view of the coastline
Trieste is one of Italy’s most important ports. It is a multi-ethnic city and a meeting point of various Central European cultures.
For your journey by car from Caorle, we recommend that you enter the motorway at Portogruaro or Latisana and exit at the Sistiana junction to take the road called “Costiera” because it runs along the coast, at a certain height from the sea, and from which you can enjoy a view of the entire gulf of Trieste: a view of unique beauty.
A FORTRESS WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW
As soon as you enter the “Costiera” road, you should make a stop at Duino Castle, a fortress owned for over 420 years by the Della Torre family, the Della Torre di Valsassina branch (von Thurn-Hofer und Valsassina).
There is a beautiful view of the Adriatic Sea from the walls.
BEFORE ENTERING TRIESTE
The Miramare Castle
Continuing along the “Costiera”, and before entering Trieste, you will find the Miramare Castle built in 1850 by Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Habsburg.
The castle is surrounded by a large park and is situated on a cliff overlooking the sea.
The structure is in excellent condition and often becomes a film set for stories set in that period. A visit inside requires limited time.
The road continues towards the town centre along the sea, and there are many bathing establishments overflowing with bathers in summer. You pass by the railway station and after a few hundred metres it is advisable to find a car park near the quays of the port where you can leave your car.
INTERESTING PLACES TO VISIT
In the city centre of Trieste
On our right, we can see the maritime station and the Audace Pier where the first ship to enter the port of Trieste moored after the end of World War I and its annexation to Italy. On the pier, the bronze wind rose obtained from the casting of an Austrian ship sunk by the Italian Navy is easily visible.
Opposite is Piazza Unità d’Italia, one of Italy’s most beautiful squares and the pride of the Trieste community, surrounded by buildings important to the city’s history and administration.
Trieste has always exerted a special fascination on artists and writers, such as James Joyce and Stendhal, not to mention its local man of letters, Umberto Saba, who wrote so much about his city.
There are many places to see in Trieste, which is why it is a good idea to have an illustrated guidebook, but in addition to the city square, you can climb up to the Cathedral of San Giusto or linger in one of the city’s many historic cafés, such as the Caffè degli Specchi located in Piazza Unità, or the 1830 Caffè Tommaseo, the oldest in Trieste.
These are just a few examples of the many things to see and do in Trieste in a day, but the city offers many other interesting attractions such as churches, monuments, restaurants, cafés, cultural and nature activities and much more.
How to reach Trieste from Caorle
The city of Trieste is about 140 kilometres from the San Francesco Village, a considerable distance but well worth the effort.
To get there, there are various means, from buses to the railway station in Portogruaro from where trains to the city of Venezia Giulia region run quite frequently; or by car. The train is very convenient, but the car allows us to stop in areas with idyllic views.
