What to expect

Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Trieste from a very interesting historical perspective. This place is - strangely - still quite "ignored" by most of the touristy flows, but it represents a real gem of Italy, although geographically isolated from the rest of Italy.

During this tour you will explore the most important places, squares and buildings which still represent the symbols of the strong Habsburg domination of this territory. As a prosperous seaport in the Mediterranean region, Trieste became indeed the fourth largest city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (after Vienna, Budapest, and Prague).

The walking tour will start from Trieste cruise port, from where you'll start your walk towards the wonderful Piazza Unità d'Italia ("square of the Italian unification"), with its stunning view on the sea and its ancient palaces. You will then visit Borgo Teresiano and spot Piazza della Borsa and the theater dedicated to the worldwide famous Giuseppe Verdi.

Walk through the pictoresque Canal Grande and continue your visit to the Tergesteo until you reach the elegant Palazzo Gopcevich and Palazzo Scaramagnà.

Enter Piazza Ponterosso, the heart of the ancient Borgo Teresiano and walk thorugh Via San Nicolò, while you enjoy its pretty boutique and restaurants. Oh, and don't forget to bring your camera along!
