Trieste: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour w/ a Local Guide

2. Trieste: 2.5-Hour Private Walking Tour w/ a Local Guide

Join this private walking tour led by a local guide to discover the beautiful city of Trieste. This place is - strangely - still quite "ignored" by most of the touristic flows, but it represents a real gem of Italy, although geographically isolated from the rest of Italy. During this tour you will breath the authentic atmosphere of the city, while you walk along its ancient streets, alleys and historical buildings. The tour will "touch" some of the most important spots of the ancient Trieste, like the main square (Piazza Cavana), the Cathedral of San Giusto, the Castle of San Giusto, the Roman Theater, the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, the Church of San Silvestro, the "Borgo Teresiano" and the Grand Canal. During your walk, especially when you're near Piazza Cavana, don't forget to take a look at the beautiful historical buildings all around you, from the fruit markets to the craft fairs. From a few panoramic spots, you'll also have the chance to enjoy a beautiful view of the city, the harbor and the sea. Oh, and don't forget to bring your camera along!
