Trieste is a city and seaport in north-eastern Italy situated towards the end of a narrow strip of land lying between the Adriatic Sea and Italy's border with Slovenia.
Once a very influential and powerful centre of politics, literature, music, art and culture under Austrian-Hungarian dominion, its importance fell into decline towards the end of the 20th century and therefore often forgotten by tourists who head to the better known Italian cities of Rome and Milan.
Trieste however remains a very charming underestimated city with a quiet and lovely almost Eastern European atmosphere, several pubs and cafes, some stunning architecture and a beautiful sea view.
Trieste is located in the far north-east of Italy, near the Slovenian border. Take the A4 motorway from Venice-Mestre, or the A23 motorway from Tarvisio-Austria using the Lisert exit. Follow signs for Sistiana-Strada Costiera, then take route SS 14, a panoramic road leading directly to the city centre (18km). Alternatively, take the Prosecco exit (immediately after the tunnel) and continue towards Villa Opicina. From the crossroads turn right and continue down towards Trieste Ferry Port.
Trieste train station is situated in the city centre with connections to the rest of the country.
There is a bus station next to the railway station (tel. 040/425020). From the train station take bus line 8. It takes about 20 minutes from the train station to the ferry port by bus.
