a pedestrian boulevard with trees
Dec 2019
Staying in the quarter Borgo Teresiano we regularly crossed the Via Carducci to go to the Caffè San Marco in the quarter Barriera Nuova (new barrier) further east. In this part of town, which was developed as of the 19th century, used to be located the custom's post on the old road to Vienna - thus the name.

It is not just the beautiful historic café San Marco, which can be visited here. Other sights are the Politeama Rossetti, the Synagogue, the Giardino Pubblico and the Viale XX Settembre, an attractive shopping street with trees and of which the western part, for about 600 meters, has been pedestrianised. It is one of the city's most popular places, be it for visitors or locals, to go for a stroll, to go shopping or just window shopping.

There is also the Cinema Ambasciatori in this street, in a striking Liberty style building with caryatids at the front. A good place to visit is also the rather new literaty café 'Lettera Viva'.

For many tourists the Viale XX Settembre in Trieste will not be the first street of that name they have been to in Italy. Very famous are the one's in Rome and Genova, but they can be encountered in many more towns. The name has been given in reference to the 20th September 1870, the date of the 'Capture of Rome', the final event in the 'Risorgimento', the Italian unification, when troops of the Italian King Vittorio Emmanuele II defeated a papal army, consisting of Swiss Guards and volunteers from many countries under command of a German general.

Heart of the city
Aug 2020
Heart of the city. There are a lot of restaurants around and we had lunch there. The only thing is that there are doves flying and walking around all the time and is a little disgusting.

Sep 2019
Our apartment was above the Viale and every evening we would meet at 6 to have out aperitivo along with the students, young professionals and families of Trieste. Cool in every sense of the word!

Lively street with many cafes between either side of the street
Sep 2018 • Business
Lively part of town that seems much more local and has more of a Slavic feel to it. Many shops and restaurants.

Nothing like it was
Jul 2018
Couldn't believe how rundown poor Viale XX Settembre had become since I first saw it in 1974. All the charm and quirkiness has gone, shops are empty or stock dime-a-dozen goods. Very disappointing.

The Las Ramblas of Trieste
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is where the locals go to drink coffee and Aperol (separately), enjoy ice cream, eat Indian or Chinese food and generally hang out in the shade of tall buildings and trees. There are also some cool bars.

The restaurants and cafés in this area are much better value and less touristy.

If I was going back to Trieste I’d choose to stay somewhere near here.

My favourite street in Trieste
Nov 2017 • Friends
I simply love walking trough this street. Fall and summer is my favourite time off year to visit it. In the morning perfect place to have coffee in the evening you can go out to one of many bar's located there. And you can find some nice shops there. But big trees making shade in summer time and changing colours in fall are the most beautiful thing there.

Lively pedestrian street
May 2017 • Couples
It was only by chance that we discovered Viale XX Settembre, a lively pedestrian street with loads of cafes, food outlets, bars and gelaterias to choose from. We were staying within walking distance and out looking for a pre-dinner drink near to the pizzeria we were heading to when we stumbled on the viale. In the middle of the street people were drinking/dining at the tables and chairs in front of cafes, but we were looking for something quieter and away from smokers and found a small friendly bar.
The Viale is paved and there are plenty of shady trees to block out the midday sun.

Pleasant walk towards city center
Sep 2016 • Couples
This straight path is quiet, walkable and laden with trees. It's a nice walk specially in summer when you want some shade.
There are plenty of restaurants, bars and ice cream parlors.
If you are going towards the sea, take this route.

Nice shady place to wak, but dirty.
Jul 2016
If you're looking for a place to walk in the city that is not in the direct sunlight. Overall the street is dirty, the buildings are dirty, but nice to walk under the shade trees. It's a local hangout as well.
