Trieste is on the crossroads of Central Europe, the Slavic countries and Italy. It used to be one of the most important seaports in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, but now it is forgotten as tourists find other Italian cities more interesting, such as Venice, Milan and Rome.
Trieste offers several magnificent sights to explore, including the Castello di San Giusto, Cattedrale di San Giusto, the Roman Theater and Canale Grande and San Spiridione which used to be a former harbour. For those who wish to explore the surrounding area, Grotta Gigante is just 20 km away. It is the largest cave in the world and offers spectacular views. Note to take your jacket as the temperature inside the cave drops to 10 degrees.
