Trieste is a charming old town with a quiet atmosphere often compared to eastern European cities.
Step out of the city life by going to La spiaggia di Pluto and Grotta Gigante. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Noventa di Piave Designer Outlet - McArthurGlen and Barcola. Venture out of the city with trips to Aquileia (Il campanile di Aquileia & Basilica di Aquileia) and Laghi di Fusine (in Tarvisio). There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Golfo di Trieste, explore the world behind art at Museo Revoltella, and make a trip to Molo Audace.
