This walking tour’s a great way to see Trieste's galaxy of sights. Some of the best bits can be seen from Capitol Hill, like the San Giusto Castle and the Roman theatre. But nothing beats getting up close. You'll wander the narrow alleyways of the old town and the wide avenues of the new town, seeking out all of Trieste's must-sees. There's the town's main square, Piazza dell'Unita, on the old harbour. The grandiose Neo-classical contours of the Old Exchange. The great curve of the Roman ampitheatre. And the Canal Grande, a waterway that echoes the shape of its Venetian sibling. Not to mention a clutch of religious buildings that would make even the most church-laden Italian town green with envy. Think Serb-Orthodox chapels, Greek-Orthodox sanctuaries, and a Catholic Cathedral - to name but a few.
