Have you ever heard of Trieste?
You probably haven’t. Needless to say, even if you have been to Italy already, you probably have never visited it. Don’t worry, it is quite common. Trieste is a precious jewel hidden in the easternmost corner of Italy and many Italians have never been there, as well.
That’s a real pity because Trieste is an amazing city. Unfortunately, it has a big flaw – which can be a perk, in a way: it is far away from almost every other Italian location. Tucked in her little corner on the border to Slovenia, it is a bit difficult to reach. Unless you are going to either Slovenia or Croatia, there’s no reason to pass by Trieste and eventually visit it.
