Things to do


The start is in the most elegant area of the city, Unità d'Italia square, the most important square of the city which opens onto the sea.
Exploring the Teresian district by bike is easy and pleasant, the highlights are: the beautiful Grand Canal of Trieste, the orthodox churches and the neoclassical buildings.

Then you will cross the tree-lined boulevard "Viale XX Settembre" and reach the Synagogue of Trieste and the literary café "Caffè San Marco". The cycling tour will continue into the heart of the city and you will reach the top of the San Giusto hill riding along Via del Monte and Via Capitolina.

Once on the top of the hill you will see the Cathedral, the castle and the breathtaking view over the city. The way back downhill will lead you to the seafront of Trieste, called "le Rive".
