About the city of Trieste
Trieste is the most international city in the region, suspended between a glorious past of "Little Vienna by the Sea" and the present cosmopolitan city. It is a Central European city, where you can breathe a multicultural atmosphere, visit historical cafés, art museums, and appreciate heterogeneous architecture and stunning sea. At the back of Trieste, the Karst plateau rises with a natural landscape of great beauty, scattered with typical villages and natural caves.
Trieste is also one of the cheapest cities in Italy in terms of living costs and rents.
