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.
The Croatian city of Rovinj lies on the western coast of Istria, the largest Adriatic peninsular, and is roughly one hour away from Trieste, 270 km from Zagreb, roughly 500 km from Vienna in Austria and around 700 km from the German city of Munich. Spread out across an oval-shaped peninsular is the city's Venetian old town where visitors can see small artist workshops which makes this part of the city a thriving cultural centre. Tucked away down narrow streets are some lovely restaurants which are complimented by chic bars located by the waterfront. The Balbi Arch, which is the last remains of the old town wall, marks the beginning of the Venetian old town which is characterised by beautiful cobbled streets along which visitors will find the Rovinj Heritage Museum, housed in a 17th century Baroque palace alongside old artist's workshops on Grisia Street. In this area all roads lead to the Cathedral of St. Euphemia that has stunning views of the Rovinj Archipelago and the Pine forests to the south, from its 60 meter high bell tower.
The port is situated near the centre of the city with ferry services departing to Venice in Italy, with a journey time of 3 hours and 30 minutes when services stop en route in Porec, Pula or Piran. Direct crossings to Venice take around 2 hours and 45 minutes.
