Jump into the world of dinosaurs at Antonio Dinosaur Paleontological Site, located off the road that leads from Trieste to Grado. The site remains a significant paleontological location, where some of the most intact and largest dinosaur skeletons in the world were discovered. Beginning in the 1980s, scientists explored and excavated the site, finding the complete skeleton of a dinosaur they called Antonio. Subsequent excavations there led to further discoveries of ten more dinosaurs, with the work still in progress. The site is open seasonally for individual visitors, and throughout the year for groups of at least 15 with prior arrangement.

  • I highly recommend visiting the paleontological park at Duino. Presentation from Julia was awesome! The guides are very professional and their explanation makes the site even more interesting.

  • Small but wondeful dinasours site, one of the few Italy. The guides are very professional and it is a pleasure to hear from them all the details behind the discovery. Children can play with stones and search for real fossiles.
  • Very interesting guided tour by the local palaeolontogists, highly recommended also for Kids, as it´s quite hands-on.
