A hard climb (unless you find the lift inside the car park next to the Roman theatre) but well worth it for both the castle and the cathedral and the fantastic views. If you walk down the back way you can even discover the house...More

This 14th century castle stands guard over the town of Trieste. Although funny enough the info boards state it was a rubbish defensive castle. It’s only €3 to look round the place, which includes a well stocked armory, wide ramparts on all sides and a...More

The Romans, Austrians, Venetians, Austrians again and then Italians under Mussolini recognized this as the premiere location for a fort. Great views, interesting historical notes (it is a poorly conceived fort!). On your way up, take time to see the Archeological Museum.

This castle really was built for defence. It has to be one of the highest points in Trieste and gives stupendous views over the city. Well worth a visit but go by bus - there is a regular service and it si cheap.

This is a wonderful Castle, next to the San Giusto Cathedral. It only cost 3 Euros per person. Do not bother with the airship exhibit for another 5 euros. There are no airships, and the interactive headset does not work. Back to the castle. From...More

This castle is much like the other castles throughout Europe. However, this one has a wide array of weapons on display and a fantastic view of the port. You can tell why this castle was considered vitally important in the early days of international trade....More

Just €3 to get in and for that you get a couple of interesting exhibitions, some great views and a very nice cafe with drinks at reasonable prices. Quite a steep walk up, but if you combine it with a trip to the cathedral you...More

Sitting atop a hill that dominates the city of Trieste, lies the area of San Giusto. Here you will find the remains of the Roman forum, (not particularly impressive) but at the end of which you will have a beautiful panorama of Trieste. The cathedral...More

This was well worth the 20 minute walk up the salita degli giganti to reach a lovely historic site next to the remains of the Roman Forum and the wonderful cathedral of the same name with lots of medieval artefacts. The walk round the ramparts...More

If you travel in Trieste you have to visit this castle not only for what it contains but also for the sight it offers. The castle has a bar and also a museum inside it.

The best choice is to take the elevator into the parking backside Unità square. Then go downhill by feet in around 10 minutes. The bus ticket in 2017 is 1,25 euros for 60'
