  • Beautiful square. It is often said to be Europe's largest square located next to the sea. The square was built during the period when Trieste was the most important seaport of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and includes the city's municipal buildings and other important palaces. You should visit Caffe San Marco – a magnificent place, well known to both tourists and residents
  • Main piazza in Trieste. Largest square by the seaside in Europe. It's definitely big, nothing special on it though. More like a place to meet or maybe give speeches, hold concerts? I run into a super sports cars exhibition, but I'm sure it has other potential hehe There are a couple of restaurants around.
