Pearl of the Adriatic
Trieste is a charming old town with a quiet atmosphere often compared to eastern European cities. Though it was once an influential center of politics, literature, music, art, and culture, today foreign travelers often bypass the city on their way to vacation in bigger cities and seaside resorts. Trieste was at one time a major port on the Austrian Riviera, so many of the attractions, including the most prominent museums and churches in the historic city center, were built in Viennese style. Explore them on foot or by hopping on a public bus or tram. The city's pubs and cafes are seldom crowded. Trieste is in Province of Trieste. When using our Italy attractions website, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
