What you'll do

***You can't find the date and time that suit you? No worries! Drop me a message and I'll see if I can add an extra slot for you.***

We'll meet downtown (or wherever it's more convenient for you) and we'll drive up the Karst plateau by car following an itinerary that will take us to some breathtaking (and often hidden) lookouts located in the surroundings of Opicina, a small town, the cheese-shaped church of Monte Grisa and Prosecco, another small town, all of which will allow us to enjoy some amazing views of Trieste and the sea from above.
I will be happy to tell you all I know about the city and the main landmarks we'll be able to see as well as to answer to your questions!
Other things to note
Being an outdoor experience, unfortunately it's not feasible if it rains. I'll check the weather forecast regularly and inform you in advance whether the experience would be canceled.

Born and raised in Trieste, after studying and working in Venice, Australia and Indonesia for a couple of years, I am currently living in my hometown.

I love to see places from a different perspective and Trieste, being nestled between the Karst plateau and the Adriatic Sea, it's a truly unique city that can be admired from a series of extraordinary lookouts that, in most cases, only locals know.

Very good introduction to the fascinating and dramatic territory of the Carst. We also enjoyed the visit to the huge church on the hill. The two hour tour was one of the highlights during our time in Trieste.

Alessandro is a lovely guy, passionate about his native city of Trieste; full of interesting stories, and interested in ours. The tour took us up above the city to places we'd have been unable to get to otherwise. Great views and photo opps. Water provided & dolci offered - a special touch. A wonderful way of spending a couple of hours. Grazie, Alessandro. Teresa, Flic, Marilyn

Nous avons passé quelques heures inoubliables avec Alessandro. Il a changé la date, pour que le climat soit adapté à la visite... il a su répondre à toutes nos interrogations , y compris dans le domaine linguistique! Il a su adapter les visites à notre condition physique avec discrétion et délicatesse . Nous avons découvert un Trieste innatendu et magnifique . Nous a raccompagné devant notre porte en nous offrant une pâtisserie locale... merci Alessandro

I really enjoyed my afternoon spent with Alessandro. He was very personable and thoughtful. He loves the area and is happy to share that with his clients. If you have an opportunity to take this tour I would highly recommend it.

Alessandro’s experience was really good. He asked a lot of questions to get to know me and where I was from as well. He is very knowledgeable of the area and history behind the city. It was an amazing tour and I would do it again if I returned. He went above and beyond to help me find a place to get a bus ticket and dropped me off at my next destination within the city when we were done with the experience. Thank you so much for everything.
