Trieste is a lovely interesting town with great history.....but just to sit on the canal drinking and eating from one of the many cafes is so relaxing

After the canals of Venice, this one didn't look anything great. It is a nice touch though to the centre and there are many cafes on the side. Possibly could be more lively place in the evenings.

The Canale Grande is a wonderfully atmospheric part of town - picturesque, lots of elegant cafes, fine churches, imposing buildings and a flotilla of small boats on the water. Unfortunately, it also a real tourist trap.

A gorgeous urban area, made magical by the canal. A must-visit in Trieste. Relax in a café and see an 18th century world come to life.

When you think of Trieste you think of the Canale Grande. This is a must see flanked by churches, shops and other attractions you are only a short walk to the Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia

So nice on a beautiful day to stroll this canal. Not much to do and no shops so after a few photos and a nice walk, that's it.
