Create an itinerary including Old City
At Old City, interesting architecture, lively squares, Roman ruins, peaceful churches, notable statues, buzzing cafes, and inviting restaurants combine to make even the briefest stay in Trieste truly worthwhile. The extensive old town includes numerous narrow and crooked alleys with buildings from the medieval period. Much of the area remains closed to motorized traffic, so you'll easily explore on foot without being bothered by pesky scooters or cars. Don't miss the Augustan gates, built around 33 AD as part of the city's Roman walls.
