Trieste: Skip-the-Line Miramare Castle & Private Transfer

2. Trieste: Skip-the-Line Miramare Castle & Private Transfer

Book this comfortable private transfer to be taken straight from the Trieste train station to Castello di Miramare. Once you get there, your private driver will provide you with skip-the-line tickets to visit this beautiful castle. You'll then be free to start the visit by yourself, following the signs inside the castle and deciding what you prefer to see and how much time to dedicate to each room. You might want to dedicate a bit more time for the beautiful Maximilian's Rooms, particularly the bedroom, furnished as a ship's cabin, as well as the "Throne Room". Built between 1856 and 1860 by Archduke Maximilian of Austria, later Emperor of Mexico, the building is strongly influenced by a Romantic taste, as a revisited construction of a medieval fortress. Don't forget to take a look at the large park (over 22 hectares) surrounding the castle, an English-style and Italian-style garden, rich in rare plants, sculptures, and ponds, with wide steps that descend towards the sea.  After your 1.5-hour visit, your driver will take you back to the train station.

Trouble-free check-in with a printed voucher. Nice castle. We went there on the HOPTour and got back on it 2 hours later. It worked out wonderfully. That was almost too scarce for the garden. Next time we'll take the bus 4 hours later. The café in front of the castle is also very nice. Clear recommendation for Habsburg and garden fans.

The castle and the garden have been lovingly restored and are well worth seeing! You absolutely have to take an audio guide to learn everything worth knowing. The gardens have been beautifully renovated and invite you to take a stroll. Miramare is definitely worth a trip!

A very small and fine castle were there very early and had almost every room to ourselves to look at.

Good accessibility of the partner company on site. Miramare Castle should definitely be visited.

Easy to book Easy to get to by bus A nice K&K overview An interesting castle
