Trieste Italy is a city tucked up in the Northeastern corner of the country, barely noticed among the big name Italian superstar cities. Its quiet here. Sharing the border with Slovenia, Trieste is not a superstar Italian destination. With Venice just 70 miles away, its easy to miss this sleepy seaside village.
The most impressive sight I came across in Trieste was the old Roman Ruins. Unassumingly plopped along a side street near the center of town with very little fanfare, I had to stop and admire this small but intriguing puzzle. I found no plaque or any kind of description and I had to look it up online to find out more.
Trieste has a clean, Italian facade in some of the squares and streets. Other parts seems rather unItalian in their architecture. It features an impressive Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, the main square of Trieste, which is not as overbearing as some of the other Italian cities I’ve visited, though still quite grand.
Here are some interesting pics of Trieste as I made my way through on a very short visit:
