Lively part of town that seems much more local and has more of a Slavic feel to it. Many shops and restaurants.

Couldn't believe how rundown poor Viale XX Settembre had become since I first saw it in 1974. All the charm and quirkiness has gone, shops are empty or stock dime-a-dozen goods. Very disappointing.

This is where the locals go to drink coffee and Aperol (separately), enjoy ice cream, eat Indian or Chinese food and generally hang out in the shade of tall buildings and trees. There are also some cool bars. The restaurants and cafés in this area...More

This straight path is quiet, walkable and laden with trees. It's a nice walk specially in summer when you want some shade. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and ice cream parlors. If you are going towards the sea, take this route.

If you're looking for a place to walk in the city that is not in the direct sunlight. Overall the street is dirty, the buildings are dirty, but nice to walk under the shade trees. It's a local hangout as well.

Well, if you like ice cream, this is the place to go. All day, every day the Triestini eat gelati on Viale Venti Settembre, after breakfast, after lunch, mid-afternoon and espescially after dinner. Gelateria after gelateria line the tree-shaded avenue. Spoilt for choice? I should...More
