Nonrev’s are familiar with Italy.
Rome, Florence, Venice, Milan among others are favorite places for nonrevs to visit.
But one city they might overlook is the historical city of Trieste in north eastern Italy.
Trieste is the capital city of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in northeast Italy. A port city, it occupies a thin strip of land between the Adriatic coast and Slovenia’s border on the limestone-dominated Karst Plateau. Italian, Austro-Hungarian and Slovenian influences are all evident in its layout, which encompasses a medieval old city and a neoclassical Austrian quarter.
So what is there to see and do in Trieste say for 36 hours?
The New York Times just did a story on just this topic with lots of great ideas on where to eat, what to see and how to get the most out of a quick visit to Trieste.
