Full description
The day starts with a pick up from your accommodation, anywhere within the province of Trieste, as well as a scenic drive up the panoramic 'Strada del Friuli' to reach the old village of Contovello. Take a stop here for a visit to its narrow streets and hidden corners, and have a short walk down the ancient terraced vineyards where, centuries ago, Prosecco wine was born.

Your second stop is a 'secret' sightseeing point, a terrace hidden in the woods where you'll be able to admire the entire gulf of Trieste and the Karst plateau, running from the Adriatic Sea to the Alps. Arriving above Sistiana Bay, take a walk on the Rilke trail running right at the edge of the shore. Here you will admire some of the best views the region has to offer, as well as visiting various war stations and the wonderful Castle of Duino. 

The final stop of the tour is a traditional 'Osmiza': local farmhouses selling homemade products such as ham, salami, cheese, eggs and wine. Here you can rest and relax while tasting authentic local products in a unique environment. At the end of the tour you will be transported back to your accommodation, or to a different drop off point at your request, and within the Province of Trieste.
