A cruise from Trieste is ideal—it is a two-hour scenic train ride to Venice and a popular seaport for Italy cruises. With this city’s blush facades, wide plazas and Austrian influence, you’ll have plenty to do and plenty of elbow room to enjoy it, plus you can easily train to Venice for the day. Trieste is disorienting—geographically, it’s surrounded by Slovenia, as far northeast in Italy as you can get, ensconced in the untamed beauty of the Karstic plateau and lashed by the Bora wind. It holds a collision of Italian, Austrian-German, Croatian and Greek cultures and earned many nicknames, including “Vienna by the Sea,” “City of Coffee,” “Gem of the Adriatic.” Before your cruise from Trieste, see waterfalls tumble from rocky cliffs in the Rosandra Valley or sip coffee and let the day unfold at the largest seaside square in Europe. Here are some things to do in Trieste on Italy cruises.
