Trieste is often undeservedly overlooked by tourists who are focused on seeing Italy's other great cities, but if you take the time you will discover that the legacy left by art, history and politics has sculpted it into a beautiful, intriguing place.
A flight to Trieste from a UK airport can take between an hour and an hour and a half to complete. Cheap flights to Trieste touch down at Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport and you could be on the road for between forty minutes and an hour before you can check into hotels in Trieste.
Most people take to their feet and stroll through the city, admiring the architecture. But when you need to go a little further it's wise to book a rental vehicle. For those seeking car hire in Trieste, the airport is the place to go as you can pick up your vehicle after Trieste flights arrive and avoid the potentially confusing experience of using the local bus system.
The extensively restored grandeur of the Museo Revoltella is matched by its contents; a vast collection of artworks from throughout recent history. The Roman theatre at Trieste dates back to around 33BC and it is a pleasant place to visit during a trip. The castle and cathedral at San Giusto are worth visiting as they perch on a hill overlooking the entirety of the city and you will not be short of stunning sights after brief Trieste flights.
