Trieste has a long and fascinating history; first as a busy Roman port on the Adriatic, then as an important trading centre as part of the Austro Hungarian Empire when the city epitomised grand Belle Epoque style. It is now a popular place for Italians who enjoy the great culture and excellent cuisine – it is perfect for a highly civilised short break. Key highlights include the Miramare Castle and gardens, the history of James Joyce (who stayed here), the world-renowned Illy coffee factory, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Jewish Museum and the largest synagogue in Europe.
