What you'll do

Photo itinerary | Trieste, an ancient city where the archaic past lives in the present. Listen to the sound of time, it flows unchanging over the centuries.
We'll meet in the centrale Piazza Unità, where the scent of the sea joins people and we will enter the turbulent quiet of history. We will walk in the ancient ghetto and we will arrive, without fatigue, on the hill of San Giusto, covering the centuries, returning to times when ancient walls enclosed the life of Tergeste. We will take a path suspended in a time of remembrance of war, a memory impressed in the Karst stone. We will descend towards the old city, entering through the centuries, returning to the time when ancient walls told of Tergeste's life. Because the story of a city is above all this: memory of what it was. Not to forget our history and our origin.

I am an artist, a lover of photography and I come from a family of photographers and circus artists. I attended art, photography and darkroom courses and I exhibited in many exhibitions. The photographic itineraries proposed by me want to share my beautiful city from a historical and present point of view. In Trieste, every district, each building has its own story. I'm here to show you!

Adriana's tour takes you off the typical tourist path and shows you hidden gems. She is a local and gives you a before and after perspective because she has witnessed the city changing. Good value for money, thank you Adriana!

I really enjoyed my tour with Adriana. She catered our route based on my personal interests, and it really felt like I was on a walk with a good friend that just so happened to know everything about the history of Trieste. She also brought a book with pictures about how different areas of the city used to look hundreds (or thousands) of years ago, and it was really cool to look at those side by side with the real thing while Adriana told me about the history of it.
