James Joyce, Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba. What do these three people have in common? The wonders of Trieste of course. The city of Trieste, so very important for its port and its trade links with Eastern Europe, has so much to offer its visitors. From the ancient Roman ruins, through to the Hapsburg dynasty, and finally the Nazi detention camp, Trieste is a city steeped in history, where it is possible to explore and experience all those things that have taken place in this intriguing area. But Trieste is also the Adriatic Sea that bathes the city and renders it so important, not just because of its trade but also its beaches. Every occasion is a good one for enjoying the sea and spending time on the Riviera and in the bathing establishments all year round, taking pleasure from the sunshine or simply taking a stroll.
Do you want to visit Trieste and stay in an inexpensive hotel that is conveniently located for reaching any point of the city? B&B Hotels has just the place for you in the shape of its modern establishment, B&B Hotel Trieste. Located just a few metres away from the city’s main railway station, it is easily reached by both private and public transport. From here you’ll be able to move around freely on foot, towards the historic city centre and its cultural attractions or simply to get to your destination.
Trieste’s history dates as far back as Roman times and the remains of this period are still to be seen in this marvellous city. One of the major tourist attractions that is not to be missed is undoubtedly Miramare Castle, just 6km away from the city. It’s where you can visit a fabulous historic residence built overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. But there’s more to Trieste than just history. Don’t miss out on opportunities to visit the historic town centre, its shop-lined streets, Piazza Unità d’Italia and the famous literary cafés that have welcomed internationally famous poets and writers.
Just 10 minutes away from the B&B Hotel Trieste, after an enchanting walk along the sea front, is the port and the historic town centre. Something not to be overlooked are the city’s parks which include the Rimembranza Park and Miramare’s Nature Reserve. Once there it will be possible to see many species of animals, including turtles and dolphins, and to enjoy an unforgettable day in touch with nature. And if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, then a visit to Italy’s shortest river is an absolute must. Just a few kilometres from the city are the springs of the Timavo River and their subterranean path that is waiting to be explored, as well as the Giant Cave, in which to take in the amazing stalagmites and stalactites.
