Day Five: An easy riding day so that we can make plans to explore more of the Italian city of Trieste before heading south to enjoy gorgeous views of the Gulf of Trieste, and perhaps stopping along the way to enjoy some sun, sand and surf before crossing the Italy-Slovenia boarder at Mile 13 and landing in Koper.
Things to do in Trieste:
Located right at the border with Slovenia, Trieste is one of the most interesting cities to visit in Italy. For centuries the place was at the crossroads, under different rules and influences that created a peculiar cosmopolitan city and a unique vibe.
Trieste is known for the unique cafe culture that is a bit different than in the rest of Italy
