Come closer ...

This picture was taken by my oldest daughter, at the Castello di Miramare in Trieste.

The Castello is located at the end of one of Trieste's most loved attraction: the "sea-walk", aka by triestini: Lungomare di Barcola. It's a long, beautifully paved walkway that goes from Barcola to the Castle, all along the sea.

The castle has a park, with a small lake and some ducks and swans. This beautiful swan was about to attack the camera and the photographer, however, my daughter managed to "click" it and get away safely in time.

If you are in Trieste, you can get to Barcola with the bus # 6, it will dop you off at the "capolinea" (end of the line) and from there you get to walk ( wear good walking shoes) The walk alone is worth the effort. Park, food vendors, view of the Gulf of Trieste, it's all there for you to take in. Just take it slow, this is no place to be in a hurry. More on this tomorrow.

Ciao !
