Fall in love with the beautiful Italian city of Trieste as you explore the medieval streets on this day trip from Ljubljana.
Day Trip to Trieste
We'll pick you up at 8:30 am and head towards Trieste. Located in the north of Italy, this city has been influenced by its location at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic and Germanic cultures and is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the Mediterranean.
After a two-hour journey, we'll reach Trieste and we'll start to explore its most emblematic places. We'll visit the San Guisto area, the medieval part of the city. This is the oldest part of Trieste, and here we'll be able to admire the San Guisto castle and cathedral.
We'll keep walking towards Piazza Unità d'Italia (Unity of Italy Square), the most important square in the city. The majestic buildings and restaurants are sure to make an impression! The town hall, Government Palace and the Palazzo Modello are all incredible buildings that stand tall here.
We'll continue our visit, seeing the Piazza della Borsa and the Chamber of Commerce. Then, you'll have two and a half hours of free time to explore at your own pace and to get lunch; no trip to Italy is complete without enjoying the wonderful cuisine! We also recommend checking out the famous James Joyce statue.
We'll meet again at 3 pm and head to one of the must-sees in Trieste; the Miramare Castle (entrance not included). This fortress belonged to the Habsburg Empire and currently houses a museum on the same subject.
At 5 pm we'll start our journey back to Ljubljana, where we'll arrive at about 6:30 pm.
