Last week we took a day trip to Trieste, which is about an hour and a half from us. It’s in the very south east corner of the northern tip of Italy, right next to Slovenia and Croatia. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I wasn’t prepared for it to be quite as beautiful as it was! The weather was perfect when we got there and EVERYONE was at the “beach”. It was more like a rock wall that they all laid on, but whatever works I guess.
The main square in Trieste
The Roman theater, built sometime during the second half of the 1st century.
The harbor. There were tons of sailboats around Trieste.
View from near Castello di San Giusto
They turned parts of the castle into museums, with lots of ancient artifacts. It was pretty neat! These are mosaic flooring made who knows how long ago.
Views from the top of the castle.
They had really old furniture in part of the museums. I like how this picture turned out, but I have no clue how old this table is.
San Giusto church
Arch di Riccardo, built in 33BC.
