We had lunch at a wonderful mansion in a residential area on a hill overlooking the city of Trieste. The interior taste was excellent, and the traditional dishes were delicious. The problem is that the final contacts on the localhost didn't reach the last minute.

Excellent visit.

A very cultivated and passionate guide who has really revealed the city of Trieste to us and makes us discover places and parts of an unsuspected history, not without humor and with great intelligence and relevance.
