Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia / Province of Trieste / Trieste / Little Berlin
Air-raid tunnels built during World War II, Little Berlin consist of two separate and distinctly built sections. The first, built by Italian engineers, contains a series of parallel passageways. The second section, excavated by German engineers, includes a set of large rooms used by SS troops. During the war, the commander of the German troops could use these tunnels to reach his offices in the city from his home without once emerging into the open. The tunnels remain closed on the weekends, and can be visited on guided tours every last Friday of the month. Put Little Berlin into our Trieste day trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Trieste.

Wonderful experience with extremely knowledgeable and passionate volunteers from the CAT who guided us through the tunnels and much more during the two hours visit, sometimes with humorous remarks...

Even though tours are organized every last Friday of the month only, after writing an email to Lucio, he made sure I could join a tour during my stay in Trieste (which included the second Friday of the month). A 2-hour tour was 5 EUR only. Lucio and Maurizio are clearly passionate about what they do (it's exclusively volunteer work, not even funded by the city of Trieste!) and have a plethora of interesting information to share with guests - about Trieste and the German occupation, WWII, speleology, etc. This was one of the most interesting things I did in Trieste during my stay and I couldn't recommend Lucio and Maurizio more.
Lovely volunteers work here, look at website for when they do tours: one Friday per month normally.
