Duino is a small village west of Trieste, it is reachable driving the coastal road "Strada Costiera" past Miramare in Monfalcone/Venice direction.
Its most known feature is the castles, the old one is a ruin but the new one is the residence of the prince Thurn und Taxis.
It felt kind of strange, while I was buying the tickets to visit it, to hear the receptionist answer the phone saying "Good morning your highness..."
The village also has a small port and some shops and restaurant near the waterfront.
Duino is also the starting point of the Rilke trail, a tourist trail that connect the villages of Duino and Sistiana and provide wonderful scenic view over the gulf of Trieste.
