Sehenswürdigkeiten
The magnificent castle of Emperor Maximilan is one of the major sights. It used to be an Imperial residence until the end of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and the furniture is still original. The park surrounding the castle used to be one of the most magnificent parks, it is not in the best conditions, now, but still nice for a stroll around and the entrance to the park is free. The view from the castle and also the park is really great. In summer you can go there even by boat and the view from the sea is one of my personal highlights.

About 30 minutes from Trieste by bus, the still family owned castle is quite an interesting place to visit. Rainer Maria Rilke wrote the Duino-Elegies, there and the castle has always been hosting artists and musicians. The gardens around the castle are quite nice. There is also a bunker of WWII that can be visited. It is an ideal place to visit and can be combined with some hiking (the amazing Rilke path leading to Sistiana along the cliffs with great views) or to the river Timavo. The beach of Sistiana is quite nice, too - and in summer, there is a boat that brings you back to Trieste from Sistiana.

One of my favourite promenades all year round - high up, you can slender very easily along the coast, enjoying the amazing views. Both ends of the trail are accessible by bus and there are even drinking water fountains. In Prosecco, you should check out if one of the Osmizas is open, so you can have some wine, prosciutto, applestrudel at these very unique places. You can also combine this part with the Monte Grisa church just above on the edge of the cliffs, with the Sentiero Natura leading down to Castle Miramare or another trail coming from Basovizza and

This path leads from Contovello down to Castle Miramare. It is a beautiful path with nice views, there are hardly any people, so you can enjoy the nature and the view by yourself. It consists mostly of stairs going through abandoned gardens. It ends directly at the Miramare train station, where you can have a short look to the Imperial train station before going to the castle.

It's a very nice museum that was built by the Baron Revoltella, a very generous patron of the city's cultural life. There is the formerly private palace with all the representative rooms to see and also the modern part with an art collection. In summer there is also a rooftop terrace café with amazing views over the city and the Gulf of Trieste

Personally, I was postponing a visit of the cave - as I thought 'well, it's just a cave' - and I was wrong. It is really impressive - one of the largest empty spaces under earth, this cave merits its name - it is gigantic! A must see! As the entrance fee is relatively high, you might want to get the FVG travel card that allows you to visit all venues of the region, for slightly more than the amount the entrance fee of the Grotta Gigante alone.

Nature
The natural reserve of Val Rosandra is one of my favourite places. You can go there by bus and follow the different paths. There is also the possibility to go by bike, taking the ciclopedale, an old, abandoned railway line that is now a very nice biking/hiking trail leading to Slovenia and Croatia. In the valley itself, there is a waterfall, you can eventually even cool down in one of the natural swimming pools. The views are incredible - and all this is just a 20 minutes bus ride from the city center away. In the little village Botazzo at the border to Slovenia, you can have something to eat and drink. Ask me about the different possibilities, I will advise you which trail you might want to take.

One of my favourite places to go for a walk is Sentiero della Salvia, a little bit further up the coast. It's a path that leads you along the coastline, on a relatively high level, so you have a beautiful view over the Gulf of Trieste. You walk through pine woods, wild sage (it's called Path of Sage) grows everywhere. Especially in autumn it is very nice, there, as the autumn colours are really intense in this region. This trip can also be done on a windy Bora day, as thanks to its location, it is protected against the wind (Bora) and you can walk and enjoy the sun, without being bothered by the freezing cold Bora.

Gastroszene
One of the most prestigious historical cafés. The Viennese style grand café is an ideal place to hang out and have some coffee and cake - or even an aperitivo in a very classy but still relaxed atmosphere. Can be combined with a visit to the impressive Synagogue (the second largest in Europe) that is just around the corner.

A small square hidden in the old town where locals prefer to hang out. Just around the corner of the Roman arco di Ricardo, it is a vibrant center of the city's night life with lots of bars to have a drink and hang out.

One of the nicest Osmize (a kind of special place at the vinyards, where they serve food for a limited number of days - cold cuts and prosciutto, home made desserts- and their own wine) not too far from the city and accessible by bus. The view is amazing and the place really cosy. A must if it is open.

The best ice cream ever! Don't miss it! Very creamy, lots of flavours. My favourites are Mousse au chocolat, Tartufo, Water melon, Biscotto, Cherie, Mousse di Tiramisu... it's so good! Very popular late night in summer, at 11pm it is more packed than in the afternoon!

Located on a pier in the middle of the Sacchetta (the marina for private boats and several yacht clubs), you can go there for breakfast, lunch, dinner or an aperitivo on the rooftop terrace. Great views guaranteed. (Not necessarily great - but you also might see me, as my rowing club is just around the corner and I have to pass in front of it with my boat when I'm rowing). It's not really well visible from the street, as the letters on the building say 'Marina San Giusto' - the restaurant/bar entrance is on the side.

This is most probably where you will arrive. There are both, train station and bus terminal. Many locals bus lines end here or pass through this square. The Train station used to be the station of the Austro-Hungarian Südbahn (southern railways), a private railway company, connecting the Imperial Capital with Triest. Unfortunately, there are no (direct) trains to Vienna, anymore. The square itself is undergoing some works. In the center, just in front of the Central Station, there is a monument of Sissi, or better known as Empress Elizabeth who loved Trieste and Miramare palace. At the corner of the square, just next to the train station, there is s super market (PAM), the only one that is open until late in the evening and also on Sunday.

For a little walk off the beaten track I like the area around via Tigor a lot. In case you're going to the Joyce Museum, it's worth to make a little detour. You will find lots of architectural gems, art nouveau buildings, like the meanwhile renovated Casa dei mascheroni. Some are abandoned and for sale - it has a very particular flair. Plus - at Via Camician, the view over the Gulf of Trieste to Miramare is very nice. It's also a very popular photo spot. Take the stairs down, back to the center of Cavana, a few hidden squares and streets with beautiful buildings will wait to be discovered.

Scorcola is the neighbourhood where my apartment is located, on the foot of the hill. But you can also try to walk the stairs uphill - Salita della Trenovia, via di Scorcola, Via Panorama, etc... you will find a labyrinth of little stairs and streets, you will cross the tracks of the tram, you will find beautiful villas and forbidden gardens. It is the traditional upscale neighbourhood, as from there, you can see the entire city and the sea. It is also one of the most expensive neighbourhoods, the real estate prices here are the highest in Trieste. Well, if you're invited to sit on the terrace of a private villa under a pine tree, overlooking the city and the sea, you will understand, why.
