Trieste Itinerante: San Giusto Hill
Experimental project proposed by the city of Trieste and the University of Trieste: Red route
The route begins at Unità d'Italia Square, passes all of the most important sights in the old town, continues to the top of San Giusto Hill - where the Roman city of Tergeste was first settled - and returns to the starting point via a different path.
San Giusto Hill
Along the way, take time to visit the Oriental Art Museum, which has a unique collection of Japanese graphic art (including Hokusai's famous Wave) and Samurai armours.
The route does not end here, but rather takes you back to the starting point in Unità Square. After descending past Tor Cucherna (the remains of one of the city's ancient walls) and the must-see Roman Theatre, the path enters the Ghetto, going through narrow streets with antiques shops and second-hand stores, and finally returns to Unità Square.
