Description

Trieste, an amazing Italian city with a rich historical and cultural background that played a strong role in the Habsburg Empire economy. The Miramare Castle, the Habsburg summer residence offers amazing sunsets from a cliff overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

From Ljubljana pass Postojna and Sezana to Trieste, we will stroll around where history and images of the past still live in the ruins, monuments, streets and buildings scattered around the city. We’ll reach its historical heart, the Capitol Hill, the site of the ancient Roman Ruins, which include the theatre, the forum and the Augustan Triumphal Arch. We’ll then admire the Castle and the Cathedral of San Giusto, the enchanting old town, the elegant seafront with exquisite palaces of remarkable architectural value, many in Neo-Classical style, and Italy’s largest square overlooking the sea, the Piazza Unità Square.

After discovering the heartbeat of this amazing Italian city we continue the tour, only a few kilometers from the city centre of Trieste, to the romantic castle of Miramare. The Miramare castle is the romantic residence of Maximilian of Habsburg and Charlotte from Belgium. Surrounded by a wonderful park of twenty-two hectares, with many of rare botanical species beyond belief, the castle is a rare example of a noble residence of mid-seventeenth century. Enshrined in the coastal rocks, it gives visitors the chance to admire the most enchanting sunsets!

For our leisurely lunch we’ll stop in a typical restaurant offering local wines and dishes of a gastronomic tradition that reflects Trieste’s role as a crossroads of different peoples and cultures.
