A city on the sea and a symbol of Italy’s unification, so much so that it gave the name to the city’s main square, which is the largest square directly overlooking the sea in Europe: Piazza Unità d’Italia, at the foot of the San Giusto hill. It is famous for the Miramare Castle with its splendid view of the gulf, the San Giusto Castle, where you can admire sculptures, paintings and weapons, the Roman amphitheatre and the Risiera di San Sabba, an ex-Nazi concentration camp. Be sure to visit little towns like Muggia and the inland Carso area, with its Foiba di Basovizza, a deep mineral cave, as well as a national monument, and the renowned Pesec.
It can be reached from Jesolo (approx. 110 km) by car, by taking the motorway towards Trieste, or by train from San Donà di Piave, 20 mins. by car from the resort.
