Holiday in Trieste

We walked all around this area of town. Very picturesque part of town with lots of little boats moored here.

Many nice restaurants around the canal with beautifully dressed locals))) The food is good but not too cheap.

Markets and shops nearby, and here is where you find the James Joyce statue. But it ISN'T the same as Venice, just know that.

If your point of reference is the Canal Grande in Venice then you may be a little disappointed with the Trieste version. It's really just a small channel of water, although there are some attractive buildings around. A quick visit is more than enough.

The canal is a nice little spot to take in some gelato (as long as you can find some shade) Serene and peaceful there are plenty of venues to choose from.

If you are going to enjoy Trieste then you should certainly include the canal in your plans. It is a very pretty area, lots of cafe and restaurants with seating beside it and a market on some days at the top. A very pretty area

We visited one night close to Christmas, and the whole area was beautifully lit and decorated. Both sides of the Canale Grande were lined with boats and there were plenty of restaurants and bars about. Just a really nice place to be and soak up the local atmosphere.

This canal is very picturesque and is traversed by two bridges, one of them being very attractive. It is lined on both sides with cafes and restaurants and some beautiful buildings.

The right place for having a coffee or something to eat when you're walking through the city in a hot summer day.
