Triest

Italy, Triest

A fusion of tastes and styles
Strolling through Trieste is like going through a large architecture book with Past Neoclassical, Art Nouveau and Eclectic style palazzos. Imagine what the streets were like in the nineteenth century, at the height of the city's prosperity: teeming with Germans, Hungarians, Levantines, Greeks and Turks, all dressed in their very different garments.

Manifold architectural styles

Piazzo Unità d\Italia
Piazza Unità, one of the largest and most beautiful squares worldwide, overlooking the seafront, is the ideal place for setting out to discover the various architectural styles featured in town.
High atop the town hall, two statues, Micheze and Jakeze, have struck the hour in Trieste ever since the end of the 19th century.
During the day, the sun glitters on the gilding adorning Palazzo del Governo, while at night electric blue lighting magically lights up the paving at the point where the sea once lapped the shore.
Trieste is a combination of different cultures and artistic expressions, starting with its Roman origins, testified by its Roman theatre, the Arco di Riccardo and the Forum on the hill of San Giusto.
If, however, you choose to head towards the town centre, as you go through the orderly Borgo Teresiano from Piazza della Borsa, you will find a host of palazzos in different styles: real architectural masterpieces in Art Nouveau, Neoclassical and Eclectic style.

Trieste - also a city of fortresses
The town’s place of origin, Castello San Giusto, offers a spectacular view over the whole gulf. Another breathtaking view is found at the Castello di Miramare: Initially a love-nest for Maximilian of Hapsburg and Charlotte of Belgium, the castle then became the setting for their love"s tragic ending. Miramare is, in some way, a symbol of Trieste, in much the same way as the Faro della Vittoria is.
Besides the lighting of the Port of Trieste, this lighthouse is a commemorative monument to the sailors who died during the First World War. Trieste offers a thousand faces and a thousand views worth discovering.
 
James Joyce found his inspiration here
There are few cities in the world you can discover through the creativity of great authors. Trieste is one of these, as it is impossible to visit the city without coming across a page of living literature. Indeed the great James Joyce lived and, above all, found the right inspiration for his most important works here. Trieste is also the birthplace of Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba, considered by many to be the greatest Italian writers and poets of the 20th century.

Trieste, James Joyce
Starting out from Joyce’s statue on Canal Grande, you can retrace the early 20th century settings which inspired his most important works: Piazza Verdi and the theatre, the Giardino Pubblico (a park) and the historic coffee houses where you can sit at the same table where he amiably discussed literature or pondered over his great work, Ulysses.

Pasticceria Pirona, a pastry shop, where he was a regular customer, and the Picciola pharmacy, almost exactly as it was one hundred years ago, also recall the writer’s epoch.

If you pick up a novel by Svevo, and stroll around the town, you really can retrace the places, the atmospheres, the smells and the flavours found at the turn of the 20th-century. There are dozens of places described in his works which are still exactly as the great writer described them.

One of these is Piazza Hortis. Umberto Saba on the other hand, with his legendary pipe, came to a halt in via Dante on the corner of via San Nicolò… there is a bronze statue of him, standing very near the antique book shop he ran for many years, Libreria Antiquaria Umberto Saba.

A journey through inviting flavours
The Trieste culinary tradition has influences that can be found in no other part of Italy, coming as they do from German, Slav, Hungarian and even Greek cuisine.
The "rebechin" is one of the most typical customs, consisting of a traditional snack consumed at any time of the day, usually at the counter in one of the buffet bars dotted all across the town.
Slovenian tradition also originated what has become a real tourist attraction, the osmizas.

Genuine food, fantastic olive oil and wines
Private houses in Carso are opened up for short periods of time. There you can taste local specialities (wine, various kinds of salami and cheese) in a charming rural setting.
The inland offers a host of top quality products: Besides its wine, in particular its white wine, cooking connoisseurs and experts also greatly appreciate the olive oil produced in Trieste Carso.
One of the symbols of the Julian cuisine is Jota, a very tasty thick soup made with beans, potatoes and sauerkraut. Originally a “poorman’s” dish, today it is also served in the finest restaurants.

...and to finish a wonderful piece of cake
As for its desserts, Trieste has conserved the best of the Mitteleuropean traditions. Its pastry shops are lined with cakes of Austrian, Hungarian and Slav origin, including krapfen and strudel, sacher cakes, dobos and rigojanci, as well as presnitz and putizza. A break dedicated to the palate becomes a real journey through flavours, aromas and colours belonging to different cultures that form a unique and inimitable unity in this city.
