We continued our road-trip from Venice up north to Trieste.
The view from our room in Trieste. The “Arco di Riccardo” is an Augustan gate built as part of the Roman walls in 33 A.D.
The Triestian historic sites. Its artistic and cultural heritage is linked to its “border town” location. You can find some old Roman architecture, Austrian empire architecture across the city centre and Mediterranean styles.
How is this for an italian picnic; mozzarella balls, artichokes, tomatoes and of course, in Trieste, with the central european influence, ham. No picnic is complete without some Vino.
Another Spritz stop ;)
Meandering around old-town Trieste.
Trieste is situated on the crossroads of several commercial and cultural flows: German middle Europe to the north, Slavic masses and the Balkans to the east, Italy and then Latin countries to the west and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. So, it is natural to have sausage with sauerkraut and melanzane with polenta at a typical Triestine restaruarant.
