OVERVIEW
Trieste is a city and seaport in north eastern Italy, situated at the border with Slovenia. It is the capital of the autonomous region Friuli-Venezia Giulia. In the 19th century it was the most important port of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and an important "mittleuropean" cultural and commercial center. The city center is not huge, you can easily go around on foot. To reach farther places there are many buses. In the city center there is the main square (Piazza Unità) which is facing the sea. Around this main square there are: a part called the old city (Città vecchia or Cavana), San Giusto hill which has a castle on the top and many streets for shopping, having a drink, etc.. The place where people usually go for sunbathing and have a swim is called Barcola which is actually a promenade on the seaside. Trieste has a big park called Miramare which is located on the seaside, close to Barcola. The park originally was the summer residence of Duke Maximilian from Austria. Therefore there is a little castle surrounded by the park. Today the area is also a sea wildlife reserve. (See Sightseeing below).

MUST SEE

Sight Seeing

Miramar Castle

The Schloß Miramar was built between 1856 and 1860 from a project by Carl Junker working under Archduke Maximilian. The Castle gardens provide a setting of beauty with a variety of trees. Features of particular attraction in the gardens include two ponds, one noted for its swans and the other for lotus flowers, the Castle annexe ("Castelletto"), a bronze statue of Maximilian, and a small chapel where is kept a cross made from the remains of the "Novara", the flagship on which Maximilian, brother of Emperor Franz Josef, set sail to become Emperor of Mexico.

Castle of San Giusto

Designed on the remains of previous castles on the site, it took almost two centuries to build. The stages of the development of the Castle's defensive structures are marked by the central part built under Frederick III (1470-1), the round Venetian bastion (1508-9), the Hoyos-Lalio bastion and the Pomis, or "Bastione fiorito" dated 1630.

Roman theatre

Trieste or Tergeste, which dates back to the protohistoric period, was enclosed by walls built in 33–32 BC on Emperor Octavian’s orders. The city developed greatly during the 1st and 2nd centuries. The Roman theatre lies at the foot of the San Giusto hill, facing the sea. The construction partially exploits the gentle slope of the hill, and much of the theatre is made of stone. The topmost portion of the amphitheatre steps and the stage were supposedly made of wood. The statues that adorned the theatre, brought back to light in the 1930s, are now preserved at the Town Museum. Three inscriptions from the Trajan period mention a certain Q. Petronius Modestus, someone closely connected to the development of the theatre, which was erected during the second half of the 1st century.
