Every year the square is more beautiful. And in the rainy weather visit to the square will make your day in Trieste better.

Right next to our hotel, I'd like to see this square when the people are in celebratory mood. It has a few restaurants/shops on the edges.

Considered to be one of the most beautiful squares in Italy. The buildings are most beautifully decorated and you can really feel the history. The views are 360 degree because the fourth side is a splendid view over the sea.

It is 10 - 15 minutes on foot from the train station, so you most certainly do not need a car. There are also buses from the station which stop in front of the square itself. You must buy the ticket before boarding and... More
