Create an itinerary including Castle of Duino
Standing tall on the cliffs over the Gulf of Trieste, you'll find Castle of Duino, a 14th-century fortification that's been owned by the Della Torre family for over 420 years. Since 2003, it's been open for tours. Visit over 18 of the castle's rooms, where you'll find the spiral Palladio staircase, the 1810 forte-piano played by Liszt, and staggering sea views from the towers. Outside, explore the multilevel park where you'll stroll under cascading Mediterranean flowers and take in a wealth of statuary. You'll also find a bunker built during World War II, as well as a bookstore and snack shop. Looking out over the rocks, you'll see the ruins of the old tenth-century castle originally built on this spot. Castle of Duino is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • If you have time to visit this place then go for it. It is nice.. But if you must choose between Duino or Miramare then pick the latter.

  • Wonderful place. We visited the castle in April at Easter, and luckily we had real spring weather. Beautiful flowers in the castle garden, lovely scent of the flowers, excellent view to the see. The castle itself is in very good shape, can be visited inside, and has a lot to show. Authentic rooms, a lot of interesting historical items. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Fantastic, historical place. A must-visit if you are nearby. Make sure to visit the old castle, Castelvecchio, too (entrance before 4 pm).
