Trieste, Italy

Trieste is a city and port in north-east Italy, on the border of Slovenia. It is a modern, lively city which enjoys a prominent location on a hillside surrounded by rugged countryside and a beautiful coastline. Most typical of Trieste are its turn-of-the-century cafés that, like Vienna’s coffeehouses, are popular as social and cultural centers. In fact, the city is regarded as one of the most famous coffee towns in the world.

The vast Piazza Unità d’Italia is a popular meeting place, with sidewalk cafés and a number of buildings of architectural interest. Among Trieste’s highlights are the Cathedral of San Giusto, containing beautiful Byzantine mosaics and medieval frescoes. At the Piazza della Borsa stands the neoclassical former stock exchange, which serves now as the Chamber of Commerce. Crowning the hilltop is the Castello de San Giusto, built by the Venetians in the 15th century and enlarged by the Hapsburgs to its present size. Today it houses a museum with excellent exhibits of weaponry, armor, furniture and tapestries.
