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.

We loved the evening with Katrin! It was super cosy, interesting and non-touristy, which we enjoyed a lot. Got to taste great locally produced proseccos along with a nice plate of locally produced meat and cheese. It was enjoyable to see Katrin's enthusiasm for her family's heritage (the vineyard) and to be able to ask lots of questions :-)! Would totally recommend the tour! To get there, we took the ferry from Triest to Grignano, walked around Miramare castle, spent a few hours relaxing at a beach close to Miramare castle and then walked up the steps to meet Katrin. The walk up took about 45 minutes and was super nice too as it's a bit hidden (though a bit of exercise :-)). Google Maps doesn't show you the route up but other hiking apps like "komoot" do. To go back it's best to buy bus tickets beforehand and then take the bus to Trieste.
Giovanni and Mira were excellent and welcoming hosts who created absolutely marvelous, Trieste cuisine. Our translator, Virginia did a marvelous job communicating through the languages as we experienced the flavors of the Adriatic, locally made wine and homemade Grappa over a four hour tour we didn't want to end.
This was an amazing tour, first see a very nice old village and hearing her history, but after that a very nice evening with a hostess who knows how to enjoy her guest, with great prozeka, great orange wine and good food , and nothing too less. Katrin, tand for a great evening.
It’s a perfect choice! The tour with Kathrin is really special: wonderful walk though the village with lots o explanations before reaching her little micro wine yard
it was wunderful! the place is great, the wine was delicious and katrin is a great host. thank you for having us :))
