Nice place to sop for a coffee or drink by the canal. Beautiful views with the Church at one end and the sea at the other.

We arrived in Trieste on an international food fest day so this area was completely taken up by cuisine from around the world. We returned the next day to find a peaceful;charming area around which to roam and several good restaurants.
