Walking the Rilke Trail, between the Bay of Sistiana and the Castle of Duino, you can admire a stunning view and discover the pristine nature of the Karst. Reaching Muggia, also by sea, a town steeped in history, with its quaint harbor, castle and extraordinary Beethovenian Library; cross the border to Capodistria, to discover the presence of Venice on Istrian land, where the medieval square houses the famous fountain inspired by the Ponte delle Guglie, the bridge spanning Cannaregio canal. Visit Gorizia, the “Austrian Nice” to relive the charm of Mitteleuropean atmosphere and learn about the recent history of the border, which leads up to the dramatic postwar events remembered in Basovizza.
