TRIESTE BREAKS

Trieste is a place of myth and legend.  It was once Central Europe’s capital of literature and music.  It is populated by an ethnic mix of its neighbouring regions.

Visit Trieste—It has a myriad of sights and sounds for each and every kind of tourist!

Trieste is a city in northeastern Italy, and is perched at the tail-end of the Gulf of Trieste on the Adriatic Sea. The area that is occupied by Trieste now used to be the place where the Carni, an Indo -European tribe used to occupy, way back in 3rd millennium BC. Around 177 BC, the city was under the Roman republic. It was only around 51 BC that Trieste was given the status of a colony under Julius Caesar and it was Julius Caesar who recorded its name as Tergeste in his Commentarii de bello Gallico (51 BC) It was during the reign of Maria Theresa of Austria that Trieste began its flourishing era. By the start of the 20th century, Trieste a thriving cosmopolitan city was becoming part of the most visited places by some artists, like James Joyce, Italo Svevo, and Umberto Saba, just to name a few.

If one is just visiting Trieste, some places of interest to visit are the Castle of Miramare. It was built from 1856 to 1860 by Carl Junker through the order of Archduke Maximillian. Its gardens boasted of outstanding beauty with the variety of trees, it has two ponds, one has swans while the other noted for its lotus flowers. A nearby Castle annex housed the bronze statue of Maximillian, while a small chapel had a cross that was made from the remains of Novara, a ship which Maximillian set sail for Mexico.

While the Castle of San Giusto took almost two centuries to build, the stages and development of the castle fall under Frederick III. At present time there are several rooms in the Castle of San Giusto that are open to the public. One is the Sala Caprin, and it showcased the historical weapons, and is also being used for exhibitions, events, and open air shows. Walking around the Castle can actually give one whole view of the city of Trieste, the sea and its hills.

Then there is the Arch of Riccardo, an Augustinian gate built in 33 BC. The Arch of Riccardo stands in Piazzetta Barbacan, and it’s called that name because it was believed to have been crossed by King Richard of England, in his return journey from the crusades.

Next there is the Piazza dell’Unita d’Italia, which is the largest seaside square in Europe. The people of Trieste have a very high regard for this piazza, and is an awesome sight to behold. Some of the buildings actually date back to the eighteenth century, and nineteenth century. It’s in the piazza that you’ll see the town hall, the prefecture, the regional council just to name a few. In other words the Piazza is the heart of Trieste.

Then down along the coast, you will still see the elegant nineteenth century buildings of Trieste. Neo-classical and Art Noveau buildings and the Teatro Verdi, the Carciotto palace and the canal grande that runs inland from the sea to the center of Trieste.

Then we have the commercial core of Trieste and its shopping streets. There is the Via Mazzini, Corso Italia, Via Carducci, and Via Battisti. It’s in the Via Battisti that you’ll find the Cafe San Marco where it is the favoured meeting place for the literati and the intellectuals which include Claudio Magris. The best shops are in this street and it’s always clogged up with traffic.

Then there’s Muggia.  It is a beautiful seaside town that has its own distinct history that is totally different from that of Trieste. This difference is actually due to the vow of loyalty that the people of Muggia made to Venice in the thirteenth century. In the town centre you’ll find the beautiful harbour set in the midst of old narrow streets, that’s full of character. The area is being dominated by a fourteenth century castle, and is recently being renovated. Several kilometers away from Muggia you’ll see the Romanesque basilica of Santa Maria Assent from the square, and you can see the breathtaking view of Muggia. Muggia is also where the tourist complex Porto San Rocco is located. It has hotels, sports grounds, and restaurants, boat mooring and other places of interest. The town is also known for its carnival that is actually a tribute to the ancient traditions and rituals.

Then finally one need to visit the Fiona di Basovizza, this is where thousands of Italians are imprisoned in underground caves of the Carso during the Second World War. Here you’ll find the criminal atrocities spurred the world wars.  A trip back to history lanes isn’t always pleasant but one thing is for sure: Trieste is a very pleasing place to visit.  So book your flight NOW!
