Triumphantly rising on a hill, Victory Lighthouse of Trieste greets both visitors driving the scenic local roads and sailors coming by sea. Take Strada del Friuli from Trieste downtown to the nearby Prosecco village and you'll encounter this lighthouse topped by a winged statue of Nike, Greek goddess of victory. Built after World War I, the lighthouse illuminates Trieste's gulf and celebrates the city's annexation into the former Kingdom of Italy. Admission is free, but the structure is only open for visitors during certain months of the year. Please check the website for the timetable showing opening dates and times.

  • The 70 metre Vittoria lighthouse stands on Gretta hill, 60 metres above the sea, on the foundations of the Austrian Fort Kressich, built in 1854.
  • One of the best city views of Trieste! Free entry. Worth visiting when in Trieste.
