Italy, Trieste Guide (B): 7 Essential Sights to See in Trieste, Italy

Italy certainly isn’t a place where you’re going to run out of places to visit. Even with just a basic knowledge of the country you could probably count off places to visit on both hands. The eastern city of Trieste likely isn’t on that list though. It definitely lacks the kind of recognition you’d find with Florence, Milan or even somewhere like Orvieto. And yet, you surely won’t be disappointed with the various sights to see in Trieste.
