'My soul is in Trieste,' James Joyce wrote about 'Little Vienna by the Sea,' located near Slovenia and with deep roots in the history of the Habsburg Empire. Trieste is the perfect match between Austrian order and Italian flair. On weekends, the Triestini make their 'passeggiata' along the Riviera di Barcola to the Castello di Miramare. This white castle, with its magnificent position above the cliffs of the Adriatic Sea, is also called "Il Castello dell'Amore" because it was the love nest of Archduke Maximilian of Austria and Charlotte of Belgium, daughter of Leopold I. The walk is completed in one of the many historic coffee houses, where famous writers such as Franz Kafka and James Joyce loved to come. The city has an important coffee history, and is the birthplace of the famous coffee brand Illy. At sunset, the breathtaking Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia, one of the largest squares in Europe overlooking the sea, is the ideal place for an "aperitivo".
The hotel has all the necessary comforts and is centrally located on a traffic-free street with tasty restaurants and local shops.
