  La Costa dei Barbari
by paoseo

From the moment in which the sun starts being warm who lives in Trieste starts spendnig free time in the effort of sunbathing! There are many places where we are used to go but one of most weird is La Costa dei Barbari. This place is among nature and you can find above all people who love sunbathing naked or homosexuals. La Costa dei Barbari is limited on a side by a cave,in Sistiana and on the other side by the Hotel Europa.
The place most crowded is limited by a little building built next the path that is a long the coast and by a small beach of white stones.
To get there coming down you have to get to an old road that is ont the sea-side of the way that links the road 14 Triestina to the Highway A4 Trieste Venezia. This part of the road is used as a parking, and is a little before Sistiana, in front of the sweet shop "Pasticseria alla Costa dei Barbari".From here start some paths that go towards the sea or from the down directly from "Sistiana mare". If you get there from the coast you can get to Sistiana by car to the Restauran Castelreggio; in the summer you have to pay for the parking. The coastal path starts immediately after the resaturant and passes near a cava that is still working; after the cave the path takes you to an old ironed gate: it's from that point that "Costa dei Barbari"starts.
