Trieste General: 88 reviews and 177 photos


Fondest memory: Piazza dell'Unitą. The present set up of this square dates back to the nineteenth century. A vaste rectangle overlooking the sea, the piazza contains the Town of Hall. Nineteenth century buildings line up the two sides of the piazza, such as the Palazzo Modello by Bruni, yhe Casa Stratti (housing the Caffč degli Specchi), the Palazzo del Governo (Palace of the Government), the Lloyd Triestino palace by Enrico Ferstel, today's Hotel Duchi d'Aosta by Geiringer and, finally, the most notable Baroque building in Trieste, namely the Palazzo Pitteri by Ulderico Moro (1790). Immediately opposite is the Mazzoleni fountain (1750), representing the 4 Continents known at the time, with Charles VI's Baroque column next to it.
