Trains to Trieste

Trieste is a place like no other in Italy. This elegant port city at the head of the Adriatic has a remarkably un-Italian feel – and that’s no surprise. Trieste was long the principal port of the Habsburg Empire, so it was shaped by Viennese politics and culture, not by influences from Rome. Even today, the city’s coffee houses have a Mitteleuropa ambience - almost Austrian in character.

But Trieste is more than a Vienna-by-the-sea, it is where the Latin and Slavic worlds collide. The border with Slovenia snakes through the suburbs of Trieste. In the Cold War years, Trieste rivalled Berlin in the spy game. Yugoslavia was just over the horizon. Trieste was a key transit point between the two Europes, and the city played its cards deftly, maintaining good relations with both sides. It was not until the Treaty of Osimo in 1975 that the future of Trieste as part of Italy was definitively settled. It is this peculiar history, along with beautiful architecture and a lively cosmopolitan feel, that makes Trieste one of those cities that everyone must at some time visit. Compulsory reading for any Trieste journey is Jan Morris’ book "Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere".

Trieste is the end of the line for most train travellers. Italian rail routes from Venice and Udine creep by Miramare Castle and run into the middle of Trieste, where they terminate at Trieste Centrale. Until recently, there had for many years been no direct trains over the border from Trieste into Slovenia. But that changed in late 2018, with the launch of twice-daily direct services to Sezana and Ljubljana.

There are trains to destinations across Italy, including four very chic Frecciarossa trains each day to Milan, which is about four hours away (with two of those trains continuing beyond Milan to Turin). From Trieste to Rome, there is a choice of a once-daily high-speed Frecciargento service, slightly slower Intercity trains (two per day) or an overnight service. The latter takes ten hours, with a choice of sleepers, couchettes or seated accommodation.

Local trains to Monfalcone, Gorizia, Udine and Venice leave at least hourly from Trieste Centrale. in 2018, Austrian rail operator ÖBB introduced a once-daily express coach service from Trieste to Villach in Austria, connecting there into ÖBB’s main-line network. At weekends there are also direct regional train services to Villach.
