A beautiful castle and gardens about 8 km north of the center of Trieste. I was arriving by train and got off at Miramare Station. It's a short walk from there to the castle gardens. Had a cappuccino at the little cafe in the heart of the gardens. The gardens seemed a bit neglected for this blooming time of year.... More

Gorgeous. Free on the 1st Sunday of every month. Parking is okay if you get there before 10am. The park is great for a walk along the water, too!

The views are overwhelming but the castle in itself is very poor. However, if you are lucky enough to have good weather enjoy the beautiful gardens. They are worth your time and you don't have to pay.

Historically accurate and nicely presented. On the water, Gardens surround it. Easy walking. Had a handheld device to hear all about it

Castle itself is nothing special - save your buck and instead go for a walk in the surrounding gardens or enjoy the view from the pier - sunsets here are especially impeccable. City beach just nearby.

This should be the number #1 ranked attraction in Trieste. The castle is nicely preserved with great period furnishings and historical pieces. The museum is educational and helps you appreciate the significance of the castle's former occupants. The park grounds are lovely with magnificent ocean views everywhere you look.

An amazing place to go and see.i strongly raccomand a walk close to the sea and go across the amazing garden consider at least 5 hours. Fully served by parking foc and pay per use. You get to the town just in 10 minutes out of the highway E70. I leaved there my heart 😎😎😎😎😎
