Trieste for children: must see

Miramare Castle is a place where legend and history combine to tell the fable of Princess Charlotte and Imperial Prince Maximilian! A true fairy tale place with a castle, a park and wonderful views of the sea and it is perfect for both kids and adults to enjoy some open air time before getting into Trieste city centre. Just beside the castle there is the   Miramare Marine Nature Reserve, with the new Biodiversitario Marino museum. This new immersive museum allows adults and children to learn about the underwater environments of the Gulf of Trieste, an amaizng experience! Looking for another castle? Look for San Giusto one! Children will enjoy visiting the Captain’s House and the weapon-filled armory and play in the large courtyard. Romans are everywhere, even Trieste: you will enjoy an ancient amphitheatre just walking across the city centre. Another must-see is Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia, which is the largest square facing the sea in Europe and  the perfect place for children to safely have fun while their parents take a break at one of the historic cafes.

Typical food

Let’s start from the Strucolo de pomi,  a light pastry filled with apples and grapes, and pine kernels. Kids will looove it! Speaking of good side dishes, Chifeletti are ideal to accompany the various dishes. They are made from a dough-like mixture of mashed potatoes, flour, butter and eggs! A very typical one is the Calandraca, a symbol of the local cuisine, a simple stew, with potatoes, prepared by fishermen. It could be served classic (with tomato), al bianco (no tomato) and col vin’ (for adults only! With wine). Hungry?
