My daughter and I had been travelling for almost 2 months through Europe and we can honestly say this was one of the highlights of our time away.
This was the last port on an eleven day cruise and well worth the wait! Not knowing what to expect made it even better!View all reviews
Trieste and Miramare Castle Tour
A charming meditteranean city
From Ljubljana pass Postojna and Sezana to Trieste, amazing Italian city with reach historical and cultural background that played a strong role for the economy of the Hapsburg empire. As we will stroll around we will see that history and images of the past are still living through all the ruins, monuments, streets and buildings scattered around the town. We’ll reach its historical heart, the Capitol Hill, site of ancient Roman Ruins, which include the theatre, the forum and an Augustan Triumphal Arch. We’ll then admire the Castle and the Cathedral of San Giusto, a pleasant old town, an elegant seafront with exquisite palaces of remarkable architectural value, many being Neo-Classical, and Italy’s largest square overlooking the sea, Piazza Unità d’Italia.
After discovering the heartbeat of this amazing Italian city we continue the tour only a few kilometers from the city centre of Trieste to the romantic castle of Miramare. Miramare castle is the romantic residence of Maximilian from Hapsburg and Charlotte from Belgium. Surrounded by a wonderful park of twenty-two hectares, with many of rare botanical species beyond belief, the castle is a rare example of a noble residence of mid-seventeenth century. Enshrined in the coastal rocks, it gives visitors the chance to admire the most enchanting sunsets!
