Mixing Italian, Austro-Hungarian & Slovenian influences, Trieste preserves its unique border-town culture. Once the great seaport of the Habsburg Empire, its waterfront, neoclassical architecture & mix of religions, languages & cuisines preserve the real magic of this place. Do not forget its top attractions: Miramare Castle, Grotta Gigante (the world’s largest tourist cave), Barcolana (the world’s largest sailing regatta), the ancient Roman amphitheater & historical cafés, gathering places for intellectuals such as Italo Svevo, James Joyce, Umberto Saba & Claudio Magris.
