If you travel in Trieste you have to visit this castle not only for what it contains but also for the sight it offers. The castle has a bar and also a museum inside it.

The best choice is to take the elevator into the parking backside Unità square. Then go downhill by feet in around 10 minutes. The bus ticket in 2017 is 1,25 euros for 60'
