Trieste, for centuries the "gateway to the sea" of the Austrian Empire, lies at the northernmost tip of the Adriatic Sea. The capital of Italy's Friuli-Venezia-Giulia region, Trieste is nestled between a beautiful gulf, which annually hosts the largest sailing regatta in Europe, and the highlands of Karst. Almost everything in Trieste is within walking distance and the city has reliable public transportation including a turn-of-the-century streetcar for the hills. Due to its past as a seaport and emporium, Trieste has a rich history of cultural and religious diversity. Austria, Slovenia and Croatia are within easy reach.
