I haven’t been anywhere (like a lot of people) for ages, so feeling the need to get away I decided to go to Trieste Italy for a long weekend. Its about 1.5 hrs bus ride away. This was my first point to point bus trip with Flixbus, not bad, comfortable seats, mandatory mask wearing while on board.
Trieste around the old city area is pretty easy to walk around, there are roman ruins, a beautiful harbor and lots of magnificent buildings and piazzas. I had never been to Trieste, and its beautiful. Thoroughly recommend that you do the hop-on-off bus tour as it shows you the wider area of Trieste and you get an idea of where you might want to go back too, and have a more detailed look around. Depending on the time of year you go there are a number of different tours taking you out of Trieste to farms and vineyards and castles.
I am a firm believer that when you travel and explore its important to look up. Trieste is a city where its very important to look up, the buildings are grand and the detail higher up is incredible as can be seen below.
Just around the corner from where I stayed are roman amphitheatre ruins details below.
Of course no trip to a seaside town is complete without photos of the sea. They have lots of sailing yachts in one area and sunbathing along the coast in a different area.
Now for some food photos, dining out is one of my favourite things to do and I ate at a couple of great restaurants. And a seaside town means lots of seafood and a couple of desserts.
The trip was just what I needed. Awesome Italian food, sunshine, sea, breezes and shopping (yes I bought some shoes 🙂 its Italy one must.) And even though I don’t speak a lot of Italian I feel so much more comfortable there than in Slovenia where the language is quite difficult.
