Historical caffe in Trieste opened in 1914 and famous as a meeting point for the city’s intellectuals and young students. But those are not the only guests: in fact, it housed young irredentists, and functioned as a laboratory for producing fake passports to allow the escape of anti-Austrian patriots to Italy. Today this cafe has a restaurant, book store and organized exhibitions of local artists. Insider tip: If you love this, give a look as well to the other intellectual cafes: Caffe Tommaseo, Caffe Tergesteo and Caffe degli Specchi. Via Battisti 18

Trieste is far from Naples, but we have our favourites - or at least I have mine. D’Napoli - Via Armando Diaz 10 - and Assaje - Via Torino 33 - are the ones I feel I can recommend if you want a real pizza. I tested them with people from Naples and never got a complaint.

This pier was built on the remains of the ship San Carlo that sank on this point in 1740, becoming in 1743 the base for the pier called “Molo San Carlo”. At the end of the 1st world war on November 3rd 1918, the destroyer “Audace” came to the city and the pier was renamed. Funnily enough, the 3rd of November was already a holiday in the city that celebrates Saint Justus, patron of the city. Insider tip: Avoid the pier in days of strong bora as it’s very exposed to the wind. Rather go to Eataly and take one of the tables in the far end and enjoy the Bora with a view on the sea.

Not behind the corner, but your chance to learn more about a real cave if you aren’t planning a future in speleology. Its central cavern is over 100m high, 65m wide and 130m long which makes it one of the largest tourist caves in the world. Approximately 20 minutes by car is the Grotta Gigante (literally “gigantic cave”) Throughout its known history, this cave has been in the Guiness Book of Records, and a 4 person hot-air balloon has even flown through it! Today, guided tours are available of this immense natural phemonenon and your tour guide will explain about its history and the various features of the cave including the stalactites and stalagmites. If you visit this cave, ensure to take a jacket and walking shoes as the underground temperatures are not favourable and the way back up is for approx 300 steps.

Built in 1856 as home for Maximilian and Carlota, this castle is located approximately 15 minutes to the north west of Trieste. The structure itself is immensely beautiful with white-washed walls and decorative crenulations and the grounds of the castle feature extensive gardens and woodland that you can explore. Due to the position that Miramare Castle faces, the sunsets here are particularly beautiful – Looking out across the Gulf of Trieste the sun lights the sea and sky up in a beautiful display of colours. This is hands down one of my favourite places in the city, even more outside the castle than inside.

Parco Farneto whose name derives from farnus , a species of oak, is the largest green lung in the city with 915,400 square meters. Destroyed in large part during the Second World War for the need of the population to procure firewood, the Boschetto was always public and from 1533 onwards the Austrian sovereigns kept it and made it fenced to prevent its devastation. Parco Farneto was reopened to the public in 2000 after the restructuring and recovery of the historical paths that were partly paved and along which rest areas were created. The area also has a nature trail to observe the families of roe deer and other animals, a fitness trail for practicing gymnastic activities, a play area for children, ping pong and bowls.

This is the largest complex of underground antiaircraft galleries, dating back to the Second World War , still existing inTrieste . Given its hilly conformation, Trieste is crossed by numerous anti-aircraft galleries, but the kleine Berlin complex is particular for its size, its size, and for being open to the public. The complex is located practically in the center of the city, at the beginning of Via Fabio Severo, in front of the No. 11.
