If I was impressed by the Revoltella museum, (a couple of hundred yards downhill), then the Sartorio Civic Museum really quite astonished me. Let’s begin with the best bit – it’s free, (or it was in August 2018). Hailing from a city where, (almost), all...More

This free museum (and that in itself is remarkable) is a former palazzo complete with beautiful furnishings, including, as others have said, the kitchen, but also lots of remarkably preserved furniture. There are also a handful of glorious art works by Tiepolo and Carpaccio, and...More

What a wonderful surprise! One can only visit the museum with a guide. This is because they don't have enough personnel to keep an eye on all the rooms. So they organize guided visits every one hour and fifteen minutes. The guide was very knowledgeable...More

We were recieved shortly (an hour) before closing time and given an intelligent, coherent and responsive guided tour. The guide was clearly an academic rather than a scripted automaton. The collection is fantastically rich. Generally I hate guided tours. This one was highly satisfactory. I...More

Extensive art collection , modern to Renaissance. The Renaissance collection is worth the admission alone! An old elegant home houses this museum, and the living rooms have been beautifully restored. The 19th century kitchen was intact, with the stoves and cookware. Very unusual. Personal guides...More

Not far from the sea and the center pedestrian area, this home previously belonging to a family of Trieste merchants was donated along with all its contents to the city. Besides the incredible collection of 246 Tiepolo sketches, the 4th largest collection in the world,...More
