How to Find the Best Trieste Hotels with Venere

An unusual and romantic city, Trieste only became Italian in the 20th century. Before that it it was an important Adriatic port of the Hapsburg Empire and earlier still an outpost of Venetian rule. Its various identities have become blended into a city that has a cosmopolitan feel, part Italian, part Germanic, part Slavic. It's a fascinating mix for visitors who can enjoy the traces of the Austro-Hungarian empire in Trieste's distinctive cafes and older glories and medieval remnants. Venere, one of the world's leading online accommodation specialists, can offer Trieste hotels to suit any budget. Using Venere's quick and simple booking process it is possible to reserve Trieste rooms in advance and enjoy a relaxed arrival in this evocative city on the Adriatic.

What's Trieste Like?

Above the city, the Capitoline hill was the site of the first Roman settlement in the region and later the medieval castle. The San Giusto cathedral offers an attractive interior with arched pillars and beautiful 11th century mosaics. For a more recent perspective on Trieste though, it's necessary to visit the evocative cafes in the city. The Caffe San Marco was founded in 1914 and its marble tables and Venetian murals have hosted generations of intellectuals including James Joyce. There is a statue of the writer in Trieste and locals claim he wrote two of his major works in the Caffe Pirona in the Largo della Barriera Vecchia. A little north of the city, the old Hapsburg resort of Miramare offers a tranquil escape with a castle overlooking the Adriatic, landscaped gardens and wooded trails. Trieste hotels provide the perfect base for exploring this intriguing city and the Adriatic coast.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Trieste

A little Italian may be required in Trieste, as English is not widely understood, despite (or possibly because of) James Joyce's 11 years here as an English teacher. A little German may also be handy as Trieste has a thriving bierkeller culture in traditional bars serving up hearty Central European dishes like pork knuckle or goulash. Trieste specialties reflect this hybrid gastronomy in dishes like jota, a bean and sauerkraut soup or gnocchi with cheese and ham. Locals are as likely to drink German beer as the local Friuli-Venezia wines. Using the Venere website you can obtain a clear picture of what to expect from Trieste hotels.
