Create an itinerary including Saint Giusto Cathedral
Saint Giusto Cathedral remains best known for its interior mosaics, some of which date back to the 5th century. The mosaics can be lit up for a small fee. On top of a hill, the cathedral also includes a high altar consecrated in 1385. The wall frescoes depicting the life of the cathedral's patron saint date to the 13th century. Also interesting, the gabled facade features a large double-rose window and a statue of the saint. Expect a long hilly walk from the center of town, with a rewarding view of Trieste at the end of it.

  • Customer service with 1 hour delay, not in the peak time. Kitchen forgets about the orders and also about the tables to ask about the orders. Food is simple, nothing special but good. If you are patient then you are welcome there. Pizza was good!
  • Beautiful old church, cathedral of Trieste. Forum romanum next to the church, also a castle. Beautiful place.
