Apartment overview - owner's description
Holiday apartment in the heart of the splendid Trieste, benefiting from a central position which allows guests to easily reach its most renowned landmarks. Ideal location to enjoy a holiday at the seaside, amidst enchanting beaches and white cliffs, or to set off on tours to discover this fascinating territory, which offers castles by the sea, pristine areas and nature trails in the backcountry. The charming town of Trieste, capital of the Region, is today a cosmopolitan city with a glorious past deeply connected to the Austro-Hungarian Empire; thanks to its strategic location overlooking the sea in the Gulf of Trieste, it has been for centuries, and up to 1918, the main harbour of the Empire, thus inheriting the title "Small Vienna by the sea". You can admire majestic palaces from different ages, such as neo-classical architecture, art nouveau, baroque or eclectic style merging with Roman remains, buildings of the eighteenth century and of the Hapsburg era. The town lies at the foot of an promontory that comes down abruptly from the Karst Plateau towards the sea, showing off its peculiar colours, pristine nature and caves as well as deep-rooted traditions and gastronomic heritage. The apartment is located in the heart of the historical center, in the typical district of the "Città Vecchia", at the foot of the hill San Giusto. It lies at 300 m from the main square of the town "Piazza dell'Unità", Italy's largest seafront square and Trieste's symbol, and from Piazza della Borsa, its commercial heart. In close proximity to these squares lies the Opera House "Giuseppe Verdi", with a lively schedule. You can visit on foot the crooked streets of the "Città Vecchia", an extensive old city with typical Medieval houses and lots of restaurants and shops, and reach the top of San Giusto hill with its Castle, another town symbol, and the ancient Cathedral. Don't miss the chance to visit two splendid landmarks just outside the town, located on a cliff by the sea, with wonderful panoramic view over the Gulf of Trieste; we are referring to the Miramare and Duino Castles, both boasting breathtaking views and a luxurious park wrapping up its visitors in intense colours and fragrances. Miramare Castle stands on the peak of the rocky promontory of Grignano in the Gulf of Trieste, at about 10 km from the city. Composed of over 20 rooms, it was commissioned in the second half of the 19th century by the Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian of Hapsburg as a noble residence for himself and his wife, Charlotte of Belgium. The Archduke, younger brother of the Emperor Franz Joseph I, supposedly discovered this cove after he took shelter here during a sudden storm in the Gulf. The astonishing complex is realized as a Medieval fortress with a strong Romantic influence. The castle is surrounded by a flourishing park full of precious botanic species, stretching over 22 hectares on grounds degrading towards the sea, featuring an English and an Italian garden, sculptures and lakes. Duino Castle is located in the municipality of Duino-Aurisina, at approx. 10 Km from Trieste. It was built in 1300 upon the ruins of an ancient Roman outpost and it was owned by the Princes of Torre and Tasso (Thurn und Taxis). Over the centuries many illustrious people stayed here, including Empress Elisabeth of Austria (known as Sissi) and the poet R.M. Rilke, to whom was dedicated the "Rilke trail", a 2Km panoramic promenade rising high on the cliff between Duino and the bay of Sistiana and offering wonderful views over the Duino Regional Nature Reserve. Other than the castle and the park, the Duino complex allows visitors to see a World War II bunker built in 1943 by the German Kriegsmarine. Distances: the border with Slovenia is located at only 15 Km, Venice 160 Km, Udine 90 Km. At only 300 m you will find a fee-paying underground carpark open 24/7. Apartment on the first floor of a historical building, without lift. Pedestrian-only access for 150 m.

Frequently asked questions
When do I receive directions to the apartment and key collection information?
Directions and details on how to collect the keys will be emailed to you after you have paid for the booking in full. You will receive full details about your booking including directions to the property and a booking voucher that you need to hand over to the property manager when you receive the keys. In some instances you may need to collect the keys from the property manager’s office or some other location which is not the actual property you have booked to stay in. Please note that the agent provides us with the GPS co-ordinates in the travel directions and we communicate these to you; you should contact the property manager if these are unclear.
Bed sizes / bedrooms
The exact dimensions will vary from property to property but the agent has specified that bed sizes are as follows:
- A single bed is typically 70cm to 85 cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
- A double bed is typically 140cm to 180cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
- A “grand lit” is a European double bed, suitable for couples, and can be smaller than the usual UK or American doubles. It is typically 130cm wide but in some instances may be wider; it is approximately 180cm to 190cm deep.
A bunk bed is two single beds, one on top of another. Some properties also have pull-out beds, sofa beds and/or bed chairs; in a few properties the bed can be low in a wooden frame on the floor. The beds often have terry cloth sheet mattress protectors to protect the mattresses; please use them with the bed linen.
Some properties may have a loft as a bedroom: this is usually an open room at the top of the house with sloping walls and mattresses on a low bed or on the floor itself. You need to climb a ladder to reach this room. Lofts are very popular with children but may not be suitable for adults or elderly guests.
If a property has an annexe then it will typically be a building attached to the main property or a small self-contained building. Annexes often have no central heating.
Please note that bedrooms in holiday rentals are usually not that large; you should refer to the floor plan to get a sense of size.
Quality rating: three stars. The agent rates this as a well-kept, middle of the range holiday property.
What are the extra consumption costs for electricity, gas, water etc.?
You will need to pay a fixed cost of €10.00 per night for electricity, water, gas and other utilities. You will need to pay the local agent when you arrive. The price is fixed and is not refundable.
