This is the main square in Trieste, and faces the Adriatic Sea.
Fountain of the Four Continents
Palazzo del Lloyd Adriatico
The Molo Audace is positioned near Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia and stretches 246 meters out into the Adriatic Sea. I thought about jumping in the water for a swim, but quickly changed my mind when I saw all of the jellyfish - there were a ton of them!
This Roman Theatre was built during the 1st or 2nd century A.D. by the emperor Traiano.
Well, this canal is named "grande" ("big" in English), but compared to those in Venice, it is actually quite small. However, it is a pretty area, and reminded me just a bit of Nyhavn in Copenhagen. Here I found a restaurant called Al Barattolo, where I ate the best pizza I've ever tasted for lunch.
Piazza della Borsa
Another plaza near Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia.
Colle San Giusto
"Colle" means "hill" in Italian. Here I found a great view over the city of Trieste, a castle, a cathedral, and some ruins. It was near here that the old medieval town of Trieste was developed.
Castello di San Giusto
This is one of the several historic caffes in Trieste. Here I had an espresso after lunch.
