A cup of coffee in Trieste
The Friuli-Venezia Giulia region is not only the most Balkan area of the Etruscan country, but also the Italian gateway to Central Europe. The region, torn by many wars in the past, was as important as the center of Italy. It is also the land of two languages: Italian and Friulian, it is a land where the lively Forlan dance reigns, often used by French composers. Trieste is undoubtedly the pearl of the region - the capital city, a typically Italian center, and at the same time with clearly visible influence of its neighbors: Austria and the countries of the Balkan Peninsula.
Walk around Trieste
Amateurs of lounging on the sand under the sun will not be delighted with this coastal city - we will not find a beach here. However, this is no reason not to visit this region during your vacation in Italy . Trieste is above all an important transport junction of the country, with an international airport, a large railway station and a seaport. The seaside boulevards, which are the beginning of the old town, perfectly reflect the multicultural character of Trieste - square buildings with an almost perpendicular street grid and order and cleanliness resemble Austrian towns. The port itself, despite the commercial and tourist hustle and bustle, can also be a romantic place. In the evenings, when it is cooler, hikers can admire the panorama of the seaside part of the old town while strolling through the concrete Audence pier. Right next to the boulevards you will find the city's main square, Piazza Unità d'Italia . Its area is over 12,000m². Around the square there are beautiful palaces and buildings from the period when Trieste was an important economic center for Austria-Hungary. Miramare Castle should be a must-see for every tourist visiting the city. The building, erected on the head of a rocky cape right on the seashore, was built in the 19th century. An interesting fact is that almost every room in the castle has a sea view. It is also worth paying attention to the park next to the castle. It is covered with vegetation from all continents.
Holidays in the Italian capital of coffee
Despite the hustle and bustle, constant traffic in the port and on the Piazza Unità d'Italia square, Trieste is an ideal place not only for enthusiasts of intensive sightseeing and absorbing tourist attractions with all senses. It is also an excellent choice for people who want to sit on the wall and enjoy their coffee. Perhaps not many people know yet, but the city is referred to as the Italian capital of coffee . The company which produces Illy coffee, which is also popular in Poland, and the less known but equally prestigious Hausbrandt have their headquarters here. In Trieste, there is an extremely original center - Università del caffè , i.e. the University of Coffee. Willing people can learn everything about coffee in it - special courses and trainings, and even postgraduate studies are held here. It is a real tourist pearl of both the city and the region. During a holiday in Friuli Venezia Giulia , many tourists will dream of a cup of aromatic, strong coffee, so ... it is enough to come to Trieste for it.
