Hire a car in Trieste

Distinctly different from the rest of mainland Italy, Trieste is its own collage of European characters.

Cradled along Italy’s border with Slovenia, the seaport city has passed between the hands of different empires throughout the centuries, moulding it into a diverse destination. Trieste may be considered one of the greatest coffee cities in the country, but it is also the city where Central European meat platters win out over pizza.

Catch the wind swirling around the Adriatic Sea as you drive further afield from Trieste, towards mainland Italy or even Slovenia.

Inland curiosities


Though a small town by today's standards, Aquileia was once one of the largest cities and a base of power in ancient Rome.

An important archaeological and UNESCO site, the whole of Aquileia is a living museum. Its Gothic cathedral and the remains of a massive early Christian basilica are enough to peak anyone’s interest. But for the true history buff, there are a wealth of sites to discover, including corners of the town which are still being excavated.

Aquileia is a few miles inland from the Adriatic Sea and just under an hour's drive from Trieste. You can easily cruise along the coast, making a pit stop to view the Miramare Castle before arriving in Aquileia.
