The Ortodox church is one of the most beautiful places of worship in Central Europe, built in a Syrian stile. You will continue to the Miramare castle, spectacularly built on a Karstic rocky promontory in 1856 by order of Maximilian of Habsburg. It was a gift to his consort, Charlotte of Belgium. At the end of the visit you may take a time to enjoy a real Italian cappuccino in the castle garden. Anyway, the Trieste is also known as homeland of coffee culture (expresso, cappuccino, macchiato). The tour ends with panoramic ride back to the pier.
