Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia / Province of Trieste / Duino / Castle of Duino
Standing tall on the cliffs over the Gulf of Trieste, you'll find Castle of Duino, a 14th-century fortification that's been owned by the Della Torre family for over 420 years. Since 2003, it's been open for tours. Visit over 18 of the castle's rooms, where you'll find the spiral Palladio staircase, the 1810 forte-piano played by Liszt, and staggering sea views from the towers. Outside, explore the multilevel park where you'll stroll under cascading Mediterranean flowers and take in a wealth of statuary. You'll also find a bunker built during World War II, as well as a bookstore and snack shop. Looking out over the rocks, you'll see the ruins of the old tenth-century castle originally built on this spot. Castle of Duino is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
