In the immediate vicinity of FreeTime, we find the central Piazza Goldoni from which climbs the Giant Staircase leading to the hill of San Giusto, where the historic center of Trieste, in the first century stood a large Roman civil basilica. Also from Piazza Goldoni we can go down the Corso Italy that will take us in the Piazza della Borsa one of the main squares of Trieste. Also known as the second parlor citizen the square has been the economic center of the city throughout the nineteenth century.
The place where the square was located just outside the ancient city walls. In fact, at the point where the transition with unit square was the port of Vienna and the houses that surround the square upstream follow the line of the ancient walls to the tower of Riborgo.

Just past Piazza della Borsa will open to our view of the Trieste's main square, Piazza Unità d'Italy. The square opens on one side of the Gulf of Trieste and is surrounded by several palaces and public buildings. Of rectangular area is currently the largest square in Europe that overlooks the sea. They overlook the square the palace of the Lieutenancy Austrian (1905 - architect Emil Artmann), now the seat of the Prefecture, with typical mosaics that depict now the emblem of the House of Savoy and typical characters. These mosaics were to replace (in the early '20s) the original ones depicting the imperial coat of Austria-Hungary (two-headed black eagle on a gold background) and members of the imperial house, after the annexation of the territory of Trieste to Italy (the original mosaics were, however, two short sides of the building), the building Stratti (1839 - architect Antonio Buttazzoni), where there is also the maker of Mirrors, a historic café of Trieste. On top of the building a sculptural group depicting Trieste with allegories of luck and progress. A short passage between the Prefecture and the palace Stratti door to the opera house "Giuseppe Verdi" and the gallery of Tergesteo, the palace Model (1871 - architect Giuseppe Bruni), the transition between the building model and the town hall leads to the Place de la Bourse, The City Hall from the particular architecture (1875 - architect Giuseppe Bruni) on the town hall tower bronze automatons they hear their chimes on the hour. Continuing on the side of the hall leads to the archaeological site of the Roman theater, the palace Pitteri (1780 - architect Ulderico Moro) is the oldest palace in Piazza Unità, the palace Vanoli (1873 - Eugenio Geiringer engineer and architect Giovanni Righetti), home of a prestigious hotel.
The palace of the Austrian Lloyd shipping company Navigation, then Lloyd, and now the home of the Region (1884 - architect Ernesto Ferstel). On the seaward side there are two pili bearer, donated in 1932 by Autieri the First World War, where they are made up and the lowering of the flag solemn. A few more steps, past the marina, we arrive at the Stazione Marittima, home to the Palace of Congresses.

In Trieste, the atmosphere is special. Here, in the far eastern part of the Adriatic. Here in the central European city bluer, where were inspired by great writers such as James Joyce, Italo Svevo and Umberto Saba. Trieste, the city that embraces the sea or, rather, that welcomes the sea in the house. The intersection of religion is palpable from anyone who arrives in the city, where for centuries are hosted, among others, the Greek orthodox church and the Serbian Orthodox Church, the Synagogue, the Evangelical Lutheran Church and the Swiss, the oldest in the city. Trieste I have a real passion for coffee, and there are many different rites to savor it. This is an old passion: revenue in the elegant historic cafes, where still echo literary ferment of the past.
