In the very northeast corner of Italy, on the Adriatic Coast, is the city of Trieste. If you’ve never heard of this place, don’t worry; our Trieste packages will help you explore an elegant place tucked into the base of the Karst Plateau and dotted with medieval and neoclassical architecture. Over the years, Trieste has lured in writers like Joyce and Hemingway, as well as been a getaway for royalty. It’s time to discover it for yourself.
Things to Do in Trieste
No matter where you decide to book Trieste hotels, you'll be charmed by the city's eclectic blend of culture and architecture. You could get lost for a whole day—in a good way. Start out with a visit to the grand Piazza Unita d'Italia, known as the city’s “sitting room”. It’s the largest square in Europe, and it overlooks the sea. The vast 19th-century space was built by the city's former Austro-Hungarian rulers. Several Roman ruins, including a well-preserved amphitheatre, lie just behind the piazza. All right, the history lesson is over! Take a break and order an espresso in one of the city's historic cafes. Or just go take a nap at your accommodation in Trieste. No one will judge.
Getting To & Around Trieste
Trieste Airport (TRS) has daily flights from Rome and regular flights from other Italian and European cities; a bus connects the airport to the city. The historic centre is easy to explore on foot, and there is a reliable public transport system so you can see the city and beyond. Given its distinct vibe, it's hard to believe Trieste only about 160 km from Venice, Italy. You can get there by train in about two hours, so check out our accommodation in Venice and stay a night or two.
