Plan your Italian wedding in Trieste! Built along the dramatic coastline of the beautiful Adriatic Sea, Trieste is a port city, which reflects the splendours of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which dominated the region. Its connection to Austria is one of the reasons why Trieste will remind you of Vienna. It is a multi-cultural city, due in great part to its geographical location at the crossroads of Slavic, Latin and Germanic Europe. Its elegant buildings are a mix of neoclassical, art nouveau and ancient monuments and the huge Piazza dell’Unita’ is the focal point of the city and one of the most striking and popular squares in the region; lined with sidewalk cafes. 

Trieste is a city known for its coffee houses and tea rooms which are reminiscent of Vienna. The wonderful aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans wafts through the air as you meander through the charming streets. Experience the cafe’ culture at the Antico Caffe’ San Marco or the Caffe’ Degli Specchi on the Piazza dell’Unita’, founded in 1839.

No one who comes to Trieste can miss visiting the Castello di Miramare, built by the Archduke Maxiimilian of Habsburg. Built right on the ocean it is an extravagant 19th century masterpiece and is surrounded by a 54 acre park. Gorgeous!

Weddings in Trieste can be celebrated in civil, religious or symbolic ceremonies. Catholic, Jewish, Protestant and Greek Orthodox weddings are also possible due to the multi-cultural background of the city. A civil marriage ceremony in Trieste is performed on the finest square - the Piazza dell’Unita’ inside the imposing Palazzo Comunale. 

If you dream of a once in a lifetime wedding location near Trieste, we have a magnificent 14th century castle with all encompassing views of the Adriatic Sea that rival those of the Italian Riviera or Amalfi Coast. The castle is furnished throughout with original antiques and wedding receptions are held under glorious vaulted arches or in an open air courtyard. At night the setting becomes magical!
