Romantic weekend in Trieste: the sweetest places for a couple’s getaway

Share with:

Elegant and aristocratic, with a “surly grace” well described by the words of Umberto Saba, Trieste is the perfect destination for a couple’s getaway. The whole city is the ideal setting for a few days of sweetness, thanks to its refined atmosphere and views overlooking the sea, but if you need inspiration here you will find some: our tips on what to see and what to do during a romantic weekend in Trieste.

Romantic weekend in Trieste

A visit to the Castle of Miramare

If we think of the most romantic places in Trieste, we cannot fail to mention the Miramare Castle, overlooking the promontory of Grignano a few kilometers north of the city center. It is in fact impossible not to be fascinated by the beauty of Miramare: in a panoramic position on the Gulf of Trieste, the Castle made of white stone overlooks the sea and has become over time a symbol of harmony between architecture and landscape. All around there is the Miramare Park, a beautiful garden full of different botanical species and a place of choice for romantic walks in every season of the year.

A walk on the Molo Audace

Another perfect romantic walk in Trieste is the one that runs along its entire boardwalk, between Piazza Unità d’Italia and the Canal Grande. Among the favorite meeting places by couples from Trieste we can mention the Molo Audace (“Audacious Pier”), which gives the feeling of walking in the middle of the sea stretching towards the Adriatic for 246 meters. After having walked calmly, enjoying the breeze, lovers have the habit of exchanging a kiss as soon as they reach the wind rose at the head of the pier.

If this advice is valid at any time of day, the walk on the Molo Audace obviously becomes even more spectacular at sunset: turning towards Piazza Unità d’Italia, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the city while it lights up.

A stop in one of Trieste’s historic cafés

Even having a coffee becomes romantic in Trieste, at the table of one of the city’s historic cafés and pastry shops. In the capital of coffee there are many places able to offer the right atmosphere to make conversation in front of a capo in B, such as the Caffè degli Specchi with its outdoor tables overlooking Piazza Unità d’Italia, where you can immediately feel a little aristocratic. Or, for those who love literature, we recommend the Caffè San Marco that houses inside a beautiful bookstore: the ideal place to talk about the latest readings or the many writers related to the city of Trieste.

A romantic stay at the DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste

No romantic weekend in Trieste could be complete without the right room to return to in the evening. In this sense we like to think that the DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste is a perfect place for a couple’s getaway, thanks to its timeless charm and the mixture of art, history and design that shines through in every detail.

To enjoy a romantic getaway in the city, you can take advantage of the Easter is Coming Package, which includes among other things an aperitif at the Berlam Coffee Tea & Cocktail, a sweet welcome in the room and a discount on dinner at the Novecento restaurant. Everything else will be taken care of by the romantic and refined beauty of Trieste.
