    The Castello di Miramare is a wonderful place for many reasons!
    First of all the location is just stunning, with amazing views of the gulf of Trieste. The drive/walk to it is really pleasant (if it's not too hot!) and I would recommend parking at the start and walking up the approx 700mt to the entrance.
    The history of the castle itself and its founders is really fascinating, and what became of the castle after Maximilian and Carlota is also very interesting. Being a relatively "new" building, you can see the different layers so clearly.
    Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore the park, but it looks like it would be worthwhile too.

    You can't miss Trieste's main majestic square on the seaside. This is the 0 meridian of the town replete with fine architecture and a good view of the ocean liner that happens to have moored here.
    Also a great place for people watching and, of course, for a caffè.

    Not too big perfect size with your family to spend an afternoon. Animals treated very well enjoy seals little show. Nice playground for children, interesting animals but if you are " mother , I want something more" then skip. Its a simple nice cute place to chill out without "wows"

    Modern, private ownership, comfortable, winner of many awards. The best stadium in Italy. perfect vison from all sectors, fans sit very close to the pitch. It would deserve a much stronger team to play in it.

    Drove up after a stop close by.. the lakes were featured on a ident for Eurovision 2022. Parking is free for electric cars, else was around 4 euros. Parked close to the weir on the lower lake.
    Walked around the lower lake and up to the upper lake which looked low in volume.
    Both have amazing views…

    Came back the following day and spent all day by the side of the lower lake.

    Surrounded by a wonderful architectural ensemble, this is the jewel in the crown of Udine! The clock tower features two Moors striking the bell, the loggia dell Lionello is a wondeful place to sit and watch the wolrd go by. The Palazzo del Commune bears simalarities to the Doge's Palace in Venice. There are statues, columns, fountains and open spaces for parading about!

    Unsurprisingly sombre. Clearly written history at the museum. The entrance is different. Worth visiting

    After seeing (a few years ago) this square in the evening, I recently had the opportunity to visit it at lunchtime.
    In both cases it appeared to me to be extremely enjoyable. The square is swarming with people walking, drinking, eating (sitting at the tables), chatting. An image that shows the crowd in its most pleasant side, and brings joy.
    The urban and architectural framework is essential to allow this image of peace and well-being. The large square is quadrangular, thus denouncing the fact that it was conceived in a unitary way, as it was included in the city enlargement connected to the construction of the second circle of walls (mid-thirteenth century). As part of this expansion, the square was intended to house the market; and in fact it is also remembered as "Piazza del Mercato Nuovo".
    The square (now completely pedestrian) is also elegantly paved, embellished in its center by the sixteenth-century fountain by Giovanni da Udine and by a fifteenth-century column. On the four sides of the square, decent buildings, some of which retain the original frescoed facades, follow one another, interrupted only by the streets leading to the square, and by the elegant San Giacomo church, built, in Lombard Renaissance style, in 1525 - restrcturing a chapel of the fourteenth century - by Bernardino da Morcote: the same architect - coming from this small village in Italian Switzerland - to whom we also owe the nearby Portico di San Giovanni.
    I can hardly believe that - as some web sources report - in the last decades of the XXth century this square was considered a disreputable place. Today in my opinion it is the most pleasant place in the city.

    Sant'Eufemia is a small early-christian basilica in Grado's old town. It is very beautiful and definitely one to visit when in Grado.

    We spent there one whole week. The place is beautiful but the services are a disaster. There is no communication among the people who work there and it was impossible to have a relaxed day at the beach. We had rented an apartment and had no right to use the beach except for four chairs in a corner that were usually taken. Everyday we would go to the beach they would kick us out, even locals who were there. Inadmissible for the price we paid. Thanks to two Falisia workers on the beach we could use the beds…We went last year and it was perfect, this year wasn’t organized. The beach club was really nice though, also the people who work there.
    I would really recommend the Falisia Hotel and apartments to rent some beds at the beach. There aren’t enough for everyone. It’s an expensive and beautiful place but needs to be more client oriented. I found really awful clients giving their opinion and trying to kick us out of the beach although it was completely empty.
    We love Porto Piccolo, we love Trieste and I hope if we come back next year it will be better. Need to say that the apartments were beautiful and the view from the terrace magnificent.

    Its a steep climb up to the castle either using the steps or a cobbled road but once up there the views are very good.
    The day I went was free admission - National Museums Day! - otherwise the admission price was quite reasonable. There is an archeological section and a section charting the unification of Italy on the ground floor, but up on the second floor is the art collection with pictures by Carpaccio, Tiepolo, etc. and a superb Caravaggio - well worth the climb up to the castle! On the top floor is a photography section, tracing the evolution of photography in Friuli - descriptions mostly in Italian. The views from the windows, however, are excellent andf some windows have indications as to what the buildings are you are looking at.

    Free parking At the bottom of the cable car, ride up takes 10 to 15 minutes… And at the top there is a gorgeous view of the village of the church various bars.
    Went to a number of the vista points that give you great views of the mountains and valleys.
    Stopped for a drink at one of the bars and had an apple strudel.

    we had been in Trieste and were bound for Venuce but a friend and said we should stop in Udine to see this palace and the wonderful Tiepolo paintings. It was well worth the visit

    We were really surprised by the beauty of this town as we didn't expect to see so many beautiful houses in Corso Vittorio Emanuele. It is a very long and beautiful street in every aspect: historic, clean and tidy as well as the beautiful shops and nice cafes.
