Miramare: The most romantic, beautiful and sad castle.

3. Miramare: The most romantic, beautiful and sad castle.

The name of the castle translates as “looking into the sea” - and it looks into the sea from a picturesque cliff at the Gulf of Trieste. Snow-white, against the background of the turquoise sea and blue sky, it amazes with its beauty. Miramare Castle was built in the 19th century. Once here, you can understand why the Austrian Archduke Maximilian chose this place to build a residence for himself and his wife Charlotte. Maximilian, who brought exotic plants from distant countries, created an extensive collection in his park, which can be admired to this day. The park is a completely man-made creation. At the beginning of construction, the castle was surrounded only by almost bare hills, overgrown with bushes. Previously, Miramare Park was also decorated with Egyptian exhibits, one of which, the Sphinx, was preserved near the pier. During the tour you will hear the romantic and tragic story of Maximilian and Charlotte, you will see and hear about Miramare architectural buildings, plants, ponds and fountains. At the end of the excursion, I will tell you about the delightful stuff inside the castle.

4. Trieste: Miramare Castle Private Tour

During an individual tour of Miramare Castle, you can explore the former apartments of Archduke Maximilian (later Emperor of Mexico) and his wife Carlotta. The spectacular location of this fairytale castle with its lush park alone is worth a visit - and I will gladly tell you the tragic story of the murdered archduke in Mexico and his crazy wife. If you need any kind of information or help for arrival or at any other time, you can always contact me.

Very interesting tour along the Slovenian coast crossing Koper Porto Rose Island and finally reaching the splendid town of Piran. Olive trees, vineyards and a dive into the history of the territory once part of the Republic of Venice. Very interesting and worth discovering

Excellent tour especially the guide who was always attentive and available and very friendly, competent and prompt!! Excellent tour and congratulations on the new way of hop on hop off bus!!!

The tour offers a good overview of the city. You can get on and off at any of the stops. The city can also be easily explored on foot.

A stop at the catgedral at the top for photos. The reflections in the tinted windows make photos from the bus all terrible.

Excellent value for money and great way to see Trieste
