Tourist information

Trieste is beautiful Italian town and port situated on the Gulf of Trieste at the NE edge of the Adriatic Sea 150 kilometres to the east of Venice. Town boils with life, has a interesting history and offers - most likely - the best coffee in Italy. Trieste has a dynamic cultural scene with numerous theatres, for instance: the Teatro La Contrada, Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi, Politeama Rossetti, Teatro Miela, the Slovene theatre in Trieste.

Every little thing in Trieste leads to the square; this is the town's beating heart, its living-room. On 3 sides are the large buildings of royal ambition, constructed between the early 19th and 20th centuries. The government palace, courthouse, and the shipping firms make this an open-air architectural museum.

Trieste is typically overlooked as travelers head off to the significant Italian towns like Rome and Milan. It is, nonetheless, a really lovely undervalued town, with a peaceful and charming practically Eastern European ambience, a number of bars and coffeehouses, a bit of spectacular architecture and a gorgeous sea view. Trieste has a credibility of being among Italy's most safe towns probably because of it being a border town. There are very few issues when it come to strolling the streets in the evening, taking taxis or pick pocketing. Undoubtedly normal safety measures should be taken and just like anywhere else in Italy beware of car drivers who often think that they own the highway.

Roman leftovers in the town of Trieste consist of a theatre and an archway. The Roman theatre is located at the foot of the San Giusto mountain, facing the seashore. The bell tower of the Cathedral of San Giusto integrates a part of a Roman temple. The modern town, begun in the early 18th century on the plain next to the gulf, is defined by wide roads and traditional 18th-century Baroque and 19th-century Neoclassical design.
