Overlooking the breathtaking gulf of Trieste, the Castle of Duino is an enchanting venue, rich in history and legends. Built in the 14th century on older roman ruins, destroyed and rebuilt throughout history, it is nowadays a charming structure dominated by 16th century towers that lend to its walls a romantic charm perfect to hold gala dinners, wedding dinners and food and wine related events.
Private residence of the Princes von Thurn and Taxis, its furnishings, pictures, valuables, books and mementoes collected over centuries bestow a warm, elegant atmosphere to the castle.
The large gardens – with centuries-old trees, manicured lawns, cascades of flowers and surprising architectural features – are an invitation to relax and enjoy quiet walks among the Mediterranean vegetation, go down the path that runs to a private beach below, or simply, imitating the poets and writers (Rilke, Twain), artists (Strauss, Liszt) and celebrities (recently the Prince Charles) that stayed at the castle, rest on the terraces overlooking the vast sea.
