la grotta con la sala naturale piu' grande del mondo. The cave with the largest natural hall in the world.
Huge underground cave with stalactites and stalagmites, tourist center and guided tours.
Here you have the world largest single cave. It's really big. Discover it, going deep in the underground!
Personally, I was postponing a visit of the cave - as I thought 'well, it's just a cave' - and I was wrong. It is really impressive - one of the largest empty spaces under earth, this cave merits its name - it is gigantic! A must see! As the entrance fee is relatively high, you might want to get…
Not behind the corner, but your chance to learn more about a real cave if you aren’t planning a future in speleology. Its central cavern is over 100m high, 65m wide and 130m long which makes it one of the largest tourist caves in the world. Approximately 20 minutes by car is the Grotta Gigante…

“The Rilke Trail is a beautiful scenic walk that connects Sistiana to Duino, running alongside the Falesie di Duino Nature Reserve. The trail is named after the poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who lived as a guest of the princesses Thurn and Taxis at Duino Castle. Rilke loved these places so much that he used them as inspiration for his Duino Elegies: "Being here is splendid", he wrote. And how can you say he was wrong? For those interested in studying, walking the Rilke Trail offers an opportunity to observe karstification phenomena at close quarters. Scenic stations have been created, taking advantage of military bunkers and foxholes from World War I and World War II. But the true glory is the splendid view of Sistiana Bay and the entire Gulf of Trieste, a view that should not be missed!”

“The magnificent castle of Emperor Maximilan is one of the major sights. It used to be an Imperial residence until the end of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire and the furniture is still the original one. The park surrounding the castle used to be one of the most magnificent parks, and after decades of neglect, they have done great work to restore a little bit of its beauty. The entrance to the park is free and you can also walk around the castle. The view from the castle and also the park is really great. In summer you can go there even by boat with the Delfino Verde ferries and the view from the sea is one of my personal highlights. ”
