My husband and I are travelling in October - first a week in Tuscany, followed by a week in Slovenia. On our way back to the Florence airport to return our rental car, we are planning to spend 2 nights in Trieste. Would like to stay in the center of town, preferably in a small boutique hotel or B&B. We like places with charm rather than larger more corporate properties. Doesn't have to be luxurious, but does have to be clean and with en suite bathrooms. Can you give me your suggestions?
Also looking for ideas for neat places to eat. Prefer spots frequented by locals. What are your favorites?
Have looked in guidebooks and on TA for recommended sights. Know about the main square, the canal, the castle just outside of town. But is there anything else you think is a must-see? We are particularly interested in historical and cultural places. I did read that there is a synagogue with a museum that we can visit. Any other Jewish-related sights?
Looking forward to seeing your suggestions. Thank you.
