Port of Trieste

Trieste is a historic seaside city near Italy's border with Slovenia, and as such boasts a culture all its own. Throughout, there are lovely historic buildings, scenic beaches, cafes, restaurants and bars. Visitors are sure to notice the marriage of both Eastern European and Italian cultures as they explore the city streets, museums and even religious sites.
