These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Trieste, along with a brief description:
♦ Piazza Unita d’Italia
If you are looking for the best place to begin your journey in Trieste, look no further than Piazza Unita d’Italia. This main city square directly faces the beautiful Adriatic Sea and was constructed during the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. Upon visiting this magnificent landmark, you will find yourself surrounded by architectural and coastal beauty. It’s a fabulous place to partake in some people-watching, and there are many restaurants, bars, and cafes nearby. If your goal is to discover the atmosphere of true Italian spirit, you can certainly find it here!
♦ Roman Theatre
Trieste’s Roman Theatre is a spectacular sight for all travelers, especially history buffs! These breathtaking amphitheater ruins will instantly bring you back in time to the city’s glory days of Roman rule. What’s even more impressive is that these ruins are located right in the middle of the modern city! Among the remains, you can still view some of the theater's seats, structural supports, and plumbing systems. A visit to this landmark is well worth the visit just to get an idea of the city’s historic engineering talents.
♦ Risera di San Sabba
For another glimpse into world history, consider checking out Risera di San Sabba. This former brick compound served as a concentration camp during World War 2 for political prisoners, and was also a stop for many Jewish people prior to their transport to Auschwitz. Interestingly, the building also once served as a rice-husking factory (prior to the war) and a refugee center (after the war). Today, it stands as a museum where you can learn more about its dark past (which can be a very emotional experience). Among some of the remains you can see during a tour include the death cells, prisoners’ artifacts, photographs, and handwritten letters. With so much story behind it, this building is a truly interesting place to see.
