3 places to visit after Venice Film Festival

3 places to visit after Venice Film Festival

1 of 3 1/3
Superyacht destination Trieste

Cruise along the coast and take in enchanting Trieste

The Venice Film Festival, which takes place this year August 30 – September 9, is the world’s oldest international film festival and draws a host of celebrities and superyachts to the floating city at the end of each summer season. If you are attending Venice Film Festival on a superyacht and looking to continue your vacation, then here are three of best options to consider.

Cruise along the coast and take in enchanting Trieste

After savouring the delights of the Venice Film Festival head east along the coast to take in Trieste. The city is a cultural melting pot where Latin, Germanic and Slavic worlds come together.

Trieste is always a popular start or end point for a private yacht vacation or luxury yacht charter in Italy.

Things to do while in Trieste: While in Trieste, take a stroll around the Piazza dell'Unità d'Italia, Italy's largest sea-facing piazza. Or hop on the vintage tram to Villa Opicina, which takes you from the city up to the beautiful Carso plateau, set 348 metres above sea level.

Where to eat in Trieste: Trieste’s culinary reputation is mainly for outstanding fish restaurants. Al Bagatto offers some of the freshest seafood in Trieste with the chef buying the fresh catch from the fisherman every morning.

If you are looking for a traditional Austro-Hungarian experience then visit one of the hole-in-wall “buffets” in town. The rustic restaurants are dedicated to pork served with sauerkraut, mustard and freshly-grated horseradish.
