Castles of the Gulf of Trieste
Uncover the history, nature, and legends of the castles of Miramre and Duino overlooking the Gulf of Trieste on this scenic yachting land adventure.
Travel by coach to Miramare Castle, an eclectic style mansion commissioned by Archduke Maximilian, brother of Habsburg Emperor Franz Josef, and designed by Carl Junker. The striking interiors are embellished by rich tapestries and wood-covered walls and ceilings. Each room is decorated in an individual style according to a typical 19th century fashion. Maximilian’s study, the library and the throne hall are especially noteworthy. Stroll through the park which contain a variety of European trees and plants, plus Californian sequoias and cypress and cedars from Lebanon.
Reboard the coach and drive to Duino Castle and its park for a tour of its beautiful castle and gardens. The Duino Castle, currently the property of the faily of Torre Tasso, was built on the 14th century ruins of a Roman military outpost. In the 18th century it became a cultural and humanistic center and is made up of different buildings linked to each other and surrounded by a lush garden. Pause after the tour for a refreshment before returning to your SeaDream yacht in Trieste.

A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures, and some may have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change.
