Many things have been said and written about Trieste and its inhabitants, as well as its history, culture and beauty. Using our wealth of local knowledge, we will show you another side to it, sharing the little rituals that take place here daily and showing you what lies beyond the tourist trail. Like true Triestini, we will leave the city centre with its historic treasures behind us and discover the wonders that lie beyond.

Day 1

Highlights of the day

MaroWays Along fishermen’s trails to the Castle of Miramar with MaroWays
Experience another side of Trieste

We will take you for coffee in one of the city’s historic cafés. Here in Trieste, coffee drinking is an important ritual and we will show you how best to enjoy it, like a true Triestino. Having finished our coffees, we will hop on the historic Opicina tramway (or replacement bus if the tram network is down) and head out to the green and distinctive Karst area, the starting point of our trip. From here, we will spend around an hour hiking and taking in breath-taking views of the city and the sea. Finding a peaceful spot to stop, we will sample rebechin, a typical Triestino snack, and savour the local produce. Our walk continues through a traditional village, followed by a descent to the sea. Strolling along fishermen’s trails and passing the railway station, which was built in 1857, we end our journey in the stunning Miramare Castle park. After the tour, you may wish to cool off with a dip in the sea, visit the Castle or return with me to the city centre.
