Trieste is a city and port in northeastern Italy right on the border with Slovenia. Trieste is located at the head of the Gulf of Trieste on the Adriatic Sea. With a population of 211,184 (2001) it is capital of the autonomous region Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trieste province.

Trieste had grown into an important port and trade hub. It was constituted a free port by Emperor Charles VI and remained a free port from 1719 until July 1, 1891. The reign of his successor, Maria Theresa of Austria, marked for Trieste in particular the beginning of a flourishing era.
Given its history and its location on the borders of several European countries, travelers will not be surprised to see a large number of interesting, imposing and sometimes beautiful buildings and monuments.

«Barcolana», one of the biggest sailing regattas on the Adriatic Sea takes place in the first week of October and then I like to visit Trieste the most
