TripAdvisor Reviews Affittacamere Ghega Trieste
Travel Blogs from Trieste
Trieste does not figure highly on most tourist itineraries,
and there aren’t any major sights to see in the city. I was interested in
stopping for a day, though, because it was right along my way between Ljubljana
and Venice and also because of its historical significance as the main port
