One day someone mentioned the town of Trieste to me, I had no idea where it was or how accessible it was. But, after that, all I knew is that I would one day find a way to visit. And I did…for the afternoon! Trieste is a tiny tiny port town in Italy located in the northeast of Italy, considered the capital of that region of Italy & one of the largest seaports in that region (Austro-Hungarian Empire region). Located so close to the border of Slovenia & the Adriatic coast, the architecture found throughout Trieste has developed an Austro-Hungarian and Slovenian influence mixed with the traditional classic style of Italian Renaissance.
A day trip to the three islands next to Venice: Murano, Torcello and Burano.
Venice was built on pillars which have been slooowly sinking down into the Adriatic Sea. Sadly, it is continuing to sink and soon enough it will become the city underwater. So if you ever needed a nudge to explore this breathtaking city, do it now otherwise you’ll have to get scuba certified in order to explore it.
