Trieste Off The Beaten Path: 87 reviews and 185 photos


Duino (or Devin as known by Slovenians) is a village situated about 10 km North of Trieste. It sports a nice castle for sightseers, and yet another goodie for literature freaks: yes, this is THE Duino from Rilke's Elegies. The great poet spent a few years of his life here, and you can visit the places which inspired him. Take a walk on Rilke's Path or just enjoy a great view over the sea.
