Cruising to Trieste

There was a time when the city of Trieste in northern Italy acted as a crossroads between the various cultures that dominated Europe, with the city providing a trade and transport hub that linked the Latin countries of the south to the Germanic nations of the north and the Slavic and Balkan countries in the east. As such, it is one of the most fascinating cities in all of Europe, and provides a fantastic insight into the history of the continent as a whole.

Among Trieste's many attractions is its Austrian quarter, which was built when the city was controlled by the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and seems to have more in common with Vienna that it does with Italian cities like Milan or Rome.

Other sites of particular interest include the likes of the San Giusto Cathedral and Castle, which contain some stunning architectural features while also boasting a charming museum and offering wonderful panoramic views across the city. The Miramare Castle, meanwhile, sits on the shore of a glistening lake and is surrounded by stunning parkland.
