Create an itinerary including San Giusto Castle
Head to San Giusto Castle, a former Roman fort, to visit the city museum's impressive collection of weapons and furnishings. Set atop a large hill, the 15th-century castle also boasts a collection of mosaic tiles, statuary, and burial stones, which are hidden in a series of deep underground cellars accessed from one corner of the site. Frederick of Habsburg initiated construction of the castle, which was finished by Venetians. Pay attention to the metal statues that welcome you at the entrance, which tell the entertaining story of Mike and Jake.

  • Interesting castle and area around it. We walked up to the castle in 26 degrees heat which was challenging, I wish we had known that the number 24 bus stops right outside the castle, we caught it...

  • It is cool that you can see all parts of Trieste from above, not only the port. The armory is quite boring, but the lapidary is more interesting than most lapidaries I have seen before.

  • Great little castle with armory and a small display of roman mosaics and stone sculpture. The view of the city is fantastic. Walk up or take the elevator from st giusto parking.
  • It's a disabled person I can only be disappointed about this place. There was no way to get on the pavement with my mobility scooter. And although that are part in places for disabled people the invalid toilet can only be reached by stairs... Also the tunnel supposedly enabling disabled people to go to the castle has stairs. Maybe someone on the wheelchair with assistance can manage this steps, but for an independent disabled person on the mobility scooter there is nothing to enjoy!
