It was alright. Nothing amazing to really look at and because the city is pretty spread out you'll walk a long ways for not a huge reward.

Trieste is interesting port and vivid city of 18. and 19. century. Older part, mainly around the cathedral (Sv. Just, San Giusto) and near the antique Roman theatre is not real tourist attraction. It is good for lonely strollers. Some new signs for orientation can...More

The Old Town is a great place to just wonder around the narrow streets taking in the buildings and is great for people watching too. Lots of antique stores, shops, restaurants and bars to visit.

The old city of Trieste is very different from the Austrian-Hungarian part of the city. This part is older with narrow, cobbled and winding streets. Some streets/stairs climb up the hill - not difficult to walk. Lots of interesting buildings, churches, amphitheater and so on....More

The heart of the old city is on the top of a hill overlooking the bay, as may be expected, so involves some fairly steep climbs. However, packed into quite a compact area are ancient churches, cathedral, castle, forum and amphitheatre

The Old City is just as much part of the new city, but the streets are narrower and mainly cobbled. They twist and wind up the hill to the cathedral and make a really nice spot to stroll.

What is called the Old Town are indeed the neighbourhoods of Cavana, San Giusto and the old Jewish Quarter. It is the oldest part of Trieste, which rises from the sea level to the hill of San Giusto, through small steep roads, or through steep...More

Not really worth a visit : the streets are steep, often deserted and with little charm or beauty. We did not feel fully at ease here. This is not a place you must have seen before you die !

The old city of Trieste seems somehow cleaner and more modern than what I've seen in other Italian cities. It's mainly closed to traffic though so getting around on foot is quite easy. Plenty of attractive old buildings to admire.
