What to expect

This panoramic tour will take you to discover the shores and countryside around the city of Trieste in the Carso area, taking you to the best panoramic points, while visiting old villages and tasting local delicacies from traditional farmhouses and wines from the region.

The day will start with a pick-up from your accommodation (within the province of Trieste) and a scenic drive up the panoramic 'Strada del Friuli' until you will reach the old village of Contovello. There you will stop for a visit to its narrow streets and hidden corners and a short walk down the ancient terraced vineyards where Prosecco wine was born centuries ago.

The second stop will be a 'secret' sightseeing point, a stone tower hidden in the woods you will climb to admire the whole Gulf of Trieste and the Karst plateau running from the Adriatic Sea till the Alps.

Arriving above Sistiana Bay it will be time to take a walk on the Rilke trail running right at the edge of the shore. Here you'll be able to admire some of the best views the region has to offer as well as visiting some war stations and the wonderful Castle of Duino till reaching the tin but beautiful harbor of Duino.

The last step of the tour is a traditional 'Osmiza', local farmhouses selling homemade products as ham, salami, cheese, eggs and wine where you can rest and relax while tasting authentic local products in a unique environment, the perfect lunch to end the day.

At the end of the tour, you'll be returned to your accommodation or to a different drop off point within the Province of Trieste.
