Piazza Unità d'Italia is an opulent grand piazza, designed to make a statement in support of its name. It is large and spectacular, rich in details and impressive at night with the beautiful lighting. Shops and restaurants abound around it, and its location near the harbor makes it a logical stop during a promenade along the seaside of the city. Certainly worthwhile visiting, it can't be missed (literally).

I am sad, because I am in Trieste. I had imagined it to be so beautiful, and in fact it looks like Vienna by the sea at first. It used to be pretty wild here, it has an exciting history, but a few years ago the entire city centre was completely renovated and has degenerated into a soulless tourist bum. Pimped plastic people sit in plastic cafés and drink plastic cocktails to brain-dead plastic techno. It is such a shame.

This large square is the main square in Trieste and is surrounded on 3 sides by some very grand buildings and on the fourth side, it is open to the sea. Its the ideal place to sip a coffee and watch the world go by. Watch out for seagulls - they can be a bit aggressive!
Just across the road and to the right, is the Molo Audace - a short walk to the end of the pier will give you some wonderful views back across the water front of the city.

Drink coffee in the square, learn its history and take in the beauty of Trieste. Walk across the road to see the bronze statues on the sea, and stroll to the canal, then back along the lovely shop lined streets. If you're lucky you may visit Trieste when a concert is happening in the square, and it's a great spot for New Year's Eve!

we boarded our cruise ship in Trieste after a night in Venice and a hair-raising private car transfer. We did not know what to expect of the city thinking it was a port but were very pleasantly surprised.
The Piazza is at the heart of the city and is a magnificent are bordered by the government buildings, shops and restaurants. Beautifully clean and safe. Well worth a visit.

Lisbon and Nancy have correlatives. This one stands as an open piazza with three built sides. All details worth delving into. The architecturality, the invested history, the cafes the flow of poeple, the sisparate crowds, the daychanges during the day. Before sunset it is extraordinary luminous and warm

You can't miss Trieste's main majestic square on the seaside. This is the 0 meridian of the town replete with fine architecture and a good view of the ocean liner that happens to have moored here.
Also a great place for people watching and, of course, for a caffè.

My wife and I were vacationing in Trieste and spent one day walking through the old town and harbor sections. We walked through this piazza. Quite historic, with many important buildings. Quite a place to visit.

My family and I had a short stop off in Trieste whilst on a TUI cruiser and we all enjoyed the visit to this beautiful square which is very close to the port. The extremely large square is the main one in Trieste and is surrounded on three sides by extremely grand buildings and on the fourth side it has open access to the sea. There's plenty of cafes and restaurants around.

Piazza dell'Unita' d'Italia is one of the most iconic locations in Trieste. It opens directly onto the sea and you get great views of the gulf from the edge of the square, as well as great views of the square from the Molo Audace. The square is very elegant, surrounded by Austro-Hungarian buildings including the townhall. You will find yourself crossing the square several times when you visit Trieste, and every time it will leave you enchanted.
