Duino

The Castle dominated by the 16th-century tower which holds intact a structure whose origins go back 2000 years, as witnessed by the commemorative stone placed in the 3rd century to mark a visit by Emperor Diocletian. Interior, the furnishings, pictures, valuables, books, and mementos collected over centuries bestow a warm, elegant atmosphere. Gardens – with centuries-old trees, manicured lawns, cascades of flowers and architectural features – are an invitation to relax and enjoy quiet walks. A path running through the gardens leads directly to a private beach below.
