The monument dedicated to Massimiliano d'Asburgo stands at the centre, as ordered by his baron friend, Pasquale Revoltella. The elegant Revoltella Residence, an urban residence boasting the Renaissance style of Baron Revoltella, today is home to a modern art museum; designed by F. Hitzig from Berlin, an artist which employs the Bauhaus style, the three floors still boast the original furnishings and decorations as well as a remarkable art collection.
  • We will pass Hortis Square, which includes the Public Library and the prestigious Nautical Institute ; we will then venture, overcoming the complex roadways and alleys of the Cavana quarter, to the old city, which was recently restored according to plans set out with the Urban plan.
  • Passing along via delle Mura we will have the opportunity to admire the magical views offered by Trauner Square, Arco di Riccardo, the Basilica of San Silvestro and the Baroque Church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
  • After having come down the steps of Scalinata delle medaglie d'oro, we will pass the Jewish District, the recently restored Roman Theatreand will will arrive at via San Nicolò up to Canal Grande, the heart of the Trieste district. Passing along the canal, our visit blends the elegant residence commissioned during the times of the city's rich merchants, to then focus on the orthodox temple of Saint Spyridon, where we have the chance to visit the inside.
