  1. One of the beautiful things about Trieste is that you don’t really need a car. Plenty of public transportation (buses, trains, ferries) to get around the city and surrounding areas. And if you want to rent a car for a trip they have plenty of easy options. Not long ago before the pedestrian zones in the center, I remember they allowed parking in Piazza Unita and all the buildings were covered in soot from the exhausts. Maybe when the old port is developed further they can add parking options but the last thing Trieste needs is more cars.
