This charming city on the Adriatic coast connects Italy's laid-back lifestyle with Austrian Café Culture and culinary influences from the Balkans. The deep blue water of the Adriatic reflects white cliffs and the sea breeze carries the intense scent of wild plants. From the 14th century to 1918 the city belonged to Austria and traces of the former monarchy can still be found in splendid art nouveau buildings, cafés with Viennese charm and statues of Princess Sissi. Trieste’s unique beauty fascinated and inspired authors like james Joyce, Italo Svevo, Rainer Maria Rilke or Franz Kafka. Our language school is located in the city centre, a couple of minutes away from Piazza dell’Unità d’Italia. Among its countless cafés and bars on the nearby streets you can experience Italy in all of its authenticity. At any time you can find people talking while gesticulating, laughing and, of course, eating. The promenade along the steep coasts will lead you directly to the white Miramare Castle. At night, students meet in the city centre or on Viale XX Settembre for an Aperitivo with local wines and to party until dawn.
