When you think of Trieste you think of the Canale Grande. This is a must see flanked by churches, shops and other attractions you are only a short walk to the Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia

So nice on a beautiful day to stroll this canal. Not much to do and no shops so after a few photos and a nice walk, that's it.

We have just passed by this canal. It is nothing special compared to other cities. On the other hand, it looked OK and did not smell.

Very cosmopolitan with many choices of cafe bars where you can sit, relax and people watch. The canal is very short however the surrounding areas will not disappointment you.

Open to the sea at one end, and with many cafes, bars and restaurants. A great evening ambience. We were there during both Slovenian 'Slofood' weekend and Oktoberfest - September - who knew? So there were lots of people out for a drink, and having...More
