Trieste Guide

The city of Trieste is located in the north east of Italy and lies towards the end of a narrow strip of land between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia, immediately south and east of Trieste. The city's history has been heavily influenced by its location at the head of the Gulf of Trieste, at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic and German cultures. The city has a number of theatres and has a thriving cultural scene for visitors to enjoy. The theatres in the city include the Opera Teatro Lirico Giuseppe Verdi, Politeama Rossetti, the Slovene Theatre in Trieste, the Teatro La Contrada and the Teatro Miela. A popular attraction in the city is the Castello Miramare which was built between 1856 and 1860 and is located on the waterfront around 8 km from the city. The castle's gardens are open to the public and contain a variety of trees and two ponds, one of which is noted for its swans and the other for its lotus flowers. There is also a Castle annex and a small chapel where a cross made from the remains of the 'Novara' is kept.

The port provides adequate facilities and public conveniences for passengers. The Stazione Marittima passenger terminal has a departures lounge, coffee shop, lavatories, a convenience store and public telephones. Ferry services from the port depart to Pula in Croatia and Igoumenitsa in Greece.

Pula Guide

The Croatian city of Pula is located close to the base of the Istrian Peninsular, and is the region's largest city. The most popular attraction in the city is the well preserved Roman amphitheatre and is one of the most famous sights in the whole of Croatia. Although the presence of the amphitheatre is an acknowledgement of the city's Roman past, its history go back further than the Romans. Archaeological findings in the area suggest that Pula’s history stretches back to 40,000 or even 1 million years BC.

Following the fall of the Roman Empire, the city came under the control of a number of different cultures including the Eastern Goths for 45 years, to 538, when it then became part of the Byzantine Empire until the Slavs began their colonisation in the early part of the 7th century. Another popular attraction in the city is the Triumphal Arch of the Sergi which was built between 29 and 27 BC in honour of the Sergi family who fought on the side of Octavian who later became the Emperor Augustus in the Battle of Actium, in the present day Greece.

The city's port is busy in the summer with ferry services departing to Venice, where connections can be made to other Italian destinations, Rimini, and Kooper and Losinj in Croatia.
