Cruises from Trieste
Trieste is a modern lively city, yet much of its former grandeur is still clearly apparent in the form of imposing buildings with neo-classical facades. It became a part of Italy at the break-up of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918. Trieste has often been referred to as Vienna by the Sea. The Basilica di San Silvestro, standing atop the Colle Capitolino hill, is a tourist attraction that can't be missed.
Equally impressive is the Trieste Cathedral that presides over the Piazza della Cattedrale. Family attractions include the Aquarium and the spa centre of L'Ausonia.
