This very expansive, impressive plaza claims to be the biggest square in Europe. It may well be. It's a vast, open esplanade, opening onto the sea on one side and three others are lined with massive, Austro-Imperial architecture. At night, it looks even more stunning.

This is simply the one thing you must see in Trieste above all else - The evenings when the buildings are lit up are disney-esque and make one feel as if you are in a magical place. After viewing the Piazza, you should walk out on the pier to look back upon this wonderful place.

Very romantic place! Great lights on the ground and buildings. Probably could be more street performers, or a market or something.

Apparently this is the second largest piazza on a waterfront (the largest is in Lisbon) in Europe. It's surrounded on three sides by some impressive architecture and if that appeals to you, then you will enjoy this. Two of the buildings, in particular are beautifully decorated. Other than that it's a square. I am sorry, but I was disappointed. Top... More

One of the most beautiful squares of Italy if not THE most beautiful. Surrounded by historical buildings on three sides, it opens to the sea in front.

A really beautiful elegant square facing onto the sea. Grandiose buildings on three sides and a lovely pier and the water at the other. By day it is a real focal point for tourists, quiet by night as it does not have shops or eateries lining its sides. On my first visit years ago in 1999 I saw Ennio Morricone... More
