The Hotel Roma is situated in the historical centre
of Trieste on Via Carlo Ghega, 7. The street is named after
the famous engineer who built the railroad between Trieste and Vienna.
Via Ghega runs from Piazza della Libertà
to Piazza Dalmazia. The train station at Piazza della
Libertà serves trains to the main cities of northern
Italy and is a short walk from the hotel. Following any road south
of Via Ghega takes you to the grid of the 18th-century
Borgo Teresiano where you can find numerous restaurants
The Teresiano area was designed by Austrian urban planners during
the 18th-century for Empress Maria Theresa and many elegant buildings
are on show there. Various interesting buildings are scattered around
the Borgo Teresiano, such as the Aquario Marino (aquarium), museums,
light-house, Roman theatre and fish market.
The churches in the borgo are worth visiting
for their architectural diversity, as are the Church of
Sant’Antonio Taumaturgo, built in a neo-classical
style; the fine Romanesque Basilica di San Silvestro;
and the Baroque Church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
The northern end of Trieste’s port, once a great port of
the Austro-Hungarian Empire during the 18th and 19th centuries,
is distinguished by a canal running through the borgo. East of the
hotel is the main shopping boulevard Via Giosue Carducci.
Visit the Colle di San Giusto and enjoy commanding
views across the city and sea. The hill is capped by a 15th century
castle complete with museum and basilica. North-west of Trieste
following the coast takes you to the Riviera di Barcola,
a stretch of coastline guarded by the gleaming white lighthouse
the Faro della Vittoria (Lighthouse of Victory). At the northern
end the beautiful Castello Miramare nestles in
fabulous gardens overlooking the sea.
