Bibione to Trieste day trip
Trieste, extraordinary city of politics, literature and art from the Austro-Hungarian Empire is near enough for a day trip while in Bibione. It has a unique atmosphere thanks to its port and the position on the borderline that made it one of the most colorful and cosmopolitan city of Italy.
How to get to Trieste:
- By train
- By car
- Guided tours
The railway is the cheapest and easiest way to get to Triest. From the station of Latisana there is a direct line to Trieste Centrale every half an hour for € 7.50. The last 15 minutes of this journey are extraordinarily fascinating as the railway runs over the sea. You can buy your tickets here.
Trieste is located less than 100 km far away from Bibione. You can reach it on the highway A4 in less than 1.30 Minutes for about € 15.00 including toll and petrol for one way. Although you can visit the city by walking, if you travel by car, you will be able to reach the attractions nearby like Miramare castle or Redipuglia, certainly worth a visit.
If you want to be comfortable and taken around by someone local who knows the city, its history and tourist attractions, then book a guided tour. The tour leaves every Thursday at 8:30 AM from and returns at 19:00 to Bibione. The cost is € 37.00 and it includes a stop at Duino castle (entry not included), San Giusto church and the Miramare castle of Maximilian of Austria. There is also free time for lunch and shopping.
Getting around in the city
