Trieste is a city in North-East Italy. Once a very influential and powerful centre of politics, literature, music, art and culture under Austrian-Hungarian dominion, its importance fell into decline towards the end of the 20th century, and today, Trieste is often forgotten as tourists head off to the big Italian cities like Rome and Milan.
It is, however, a very charming underestimated city, with a quiet and lovely almost Eastern European atmosphere, several pubs and cafes, some stunning architecture and a beautiful sea view. It was also, for a while, the residence of famous Irish writer James Joyce.
National flights via Milan, Rome and Genoa. International flights via Milan and Rome; direct flights from Munich; direct flights from London and Birmingham and several other European cities.
The International Airport of Ronchi dei Legionari is 33km north of the city centre. A bus service runs to the airport from Trieste's bus station. Weekdays buses leave at 5 minutes and 35 minutes past the hour however on Sundays the service is every 1 to 2 hours. The bus takes about 55 minutes, a taxi takes 30-35 minutes.
Coach tour of Trieste. Sightseeing tour starts outside the railway station (Piazza Libertà 8). Booking and ticket purchase at the Eurostar office of Trieste Centrale Railway Station.
Walking Like most of Europe, a stroll through the town to admire its ancient architecture is a very popular activity. You get to travel at your own pace and even get some coffee along the way. Trieste is not particularly big and if you do not have luggage with you there is no need to take a bus.
Bicycle Bicycle rentals are available in some places around the city. Knulp, a popular bar/bookshop/arts venue at Via Madonna del Mare 7/a, has bicycle rentals for reasonable rates, as well as wireless internet access.
