This is a nice corner in the Old Town, but when we were there, the restaurant was still closed. Maybe next time. Instead we went to Al Petes, a restaurant that I can highly recommend for its very original food.
Another poor guy. I guess you’ll admit this is pretty creative 😀
This is certainly not the most important church in Trieste, but it is probably the most visible 🙂
If I remember well, this café is called “The Red Bicycle”. The bike is just decoration. In the background you see the opera house.
Trieste’s “Canal Grande” is far less impressive than its famous namesake in Venice, but with Sant’Antonio Taumaturgo at its end it undeniably looks majestic.
Fountains are extremely important in Italy. Just think of the many famous examples in Rome.
This one is not as old as it may look like. It is the work of some Franz Schranz, a german sculptor, who erected it in 1897 for the 50 years jubilee of the Austrian emperor’s reign.
The Piazza Vittorio Veneto is one of the less spectacular squares in Trieste, but I still liked what I saw.
The building in the background is the local branch of the ministery for economic development. According to the inscription above the door, it originally belonged to the Italian national railway.
A lot of gold and enormously uneven lighting in this church. Let’s say that postprocessing was challenging 🙂
We already saw the Serbian Orthodox church of San Spiridione. Unfortunately part of the interior was being restored while we were there and therefore hidden behind scaffolding. I did what was possible in today’s and tomorrow’s image.
