on the Karst Plateau
Dec 2019
The city of Trieste is of great cultural interest, but it also offers plenty for the nature lover, especially in the Carso Triestino, part of the Karst Plateau, which it shares with southwestern Slovenia. With plenty of trails it is a paradise for hikers. Most popular is the Strada Vicentina (or Via Napoleonica) on the edge of the Karst, high above the Mediterranean with great views of the coastline. This 3,7km long walk is very popular.

On most other trails one encounters only very few people. One day we took the bus to Opicina, where we started our a bit more than 4h hike to the old pond at 'Stagno di Banne' (Stari Kral), continuing through the village of Trebiciano (Trebce) to the village of Gropada, where we stopped for lunch at an Agroturismo restaurant.

After that we went for a short stretch on the 'Alpe Adria Trail', which is 750km long, starting at the foot of the Grossglockner and going through Carinthia, Slovenia to the Italian border village of Muggio near Trieste. Another part was on the 'Josef Ressel Trail', which continues to the Sloven village of Lipica, famous for its stud farm of Lipizzan horses.

We ended the hike in the village of Basovizza, from where we took a bus back to Trieste. The whole hike on the Plateau is with hardly any difference in altitudes and mostly around 400m asl. The scenery is typical 'Karst', a geological formation, which got its name from here, but is now used for similar topographies all over the world.

On most of our walk we went through light forest, past drystone walls and 'Karren' (limestone pavements) and we saw several dolines (sinkholes), so typical for a Karst landscape, where water disappears through cracks underground. For this reason no rivers or brooks are encountered.

fascinating landscape....great wine and hams!

Every osmiza I've stopped in at has had wonderful wines and delicious hams and cheeses...the ultimate wine tasting in very pleasant and informal settings. Don't miss it...we unfortunately get no further than the osmiza and have yet to do the nature walks and big tourist sites. I guess we're just simple lushes....LOL!

The Karst has a long history, hidden between its leaves. In every path you step, every tree you meet has something to tell you. And while you enjoy its quiet and fiery, you are overwhelmed by the view of the sea

Kras or Carso for all
Oct 2018 • Friends
Kras is region north of Trieste / Trst and spreads till the Julian Alps. It is a mixture of limestone and woods, vineyards, fields and stone walls. It is possible to visit small villages with stone houses or Stud farm Lipica, marvel of Carst. Lower lever are hundreds of caves with different stone decorations (Škocjan Caves are on UNESCO list). You need at least five days to see the nature and to taste local food and wine.

Wonderful landscape, great walking easily accessible by bus.from Trieste
May 2017 • Friends
Had a great walk in the beautiful Rosandra Valley leading up to the Slovenian border. Part of the largest Nature reserve, a stream runs through it, rocky limestone landscape with high cliffs and a rich flora. The walk was made possible for
us because we found a website - Curiosi di Natura societa co-operativa - an initiative
of some dedicated locals to promote all the different features of the Karst/Carso. Through them we were able to hire at a very reasonable rate a friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide who knew the best route for us/ how to get there and gave us all
the background and local info as well as pointing out and naming all the flowers and trees - as that was our interest.

If visiting Trieste, you have to go there. It is a plateau that overlooks the gulf and the city of Trieste. The view is wonderful and the food, which is derived from the Italian, Slovenian and Austrian cultures is exceptional.

Fantastic, Accessible Countryside
Sep 2016 • Couples
Ask at the amazingly helpful Tourist Information Centre for bus routes and maps. The 2 and the 4 go up to Opicina but get off at the obelisk and you can walk along a divine panoramic path that goes on to Prosecco where you can get the 42 back. Make sure you have your tickets though - good to buy a pass. There are more demanding walks and cycle trails too. You can also get out to Rosandra where there is a fantastic gorge. The walking is harder but amazing and you feel as if you are in the Alps, only 25 minutes from the city centre.

Nature at its finest
Aug 2016 • Friends
The carso is truly a wonderful landscape, a mixture of bare but wonderful rocky slopes and patches of the Mediterranean maquis. Home to the native slovenian-speaking population it offers many little cities each with its own folklore and tradition. I suggest visiting it for the many hikes it offers and the wonderful places in which to eat.
