                                      Shore Excursion in Trieste & Miramare Castle                                          
Duration: 4 Hours

You will start your exploration of Trieste with a panoramic coach tour to admire some of the city's most precious monuments. You will then climb the hill to reach the famous Church of Saint Justus (San Giusto) built around its medieval complex that dates backs to the 13th century. Your guide will take you into the church for a close-up view of the splendid Byzantine style architecture enriched with precious mosaics. You will then continue to Miramare Castle, spectacularly built on a Karstic rocky promontory in 1856 by order of Maximilian of Hapsburg. Inside the castle you will be able to admire perfectly preserved furnishings and decorations in an eclectic style. As you pass from one hall to another you will be enchanted by the charm of a place that harmoniously combines Mediterranean splendour with a typically Northern atmosphere. As you journey towards the modern part of the city you will travel past the places that made Trieste an important shipping and trading centre in the 18th and 19th centuries. When you reach Piazza Unità d'Italia, it will be easy to capture that Mitteleuropean atmosphere which still lingers throughout the city from Hapsburg times.

                                        Full Day shore excursion to Lipica (Slovenia)                                         
Duration: 4 Hours

Your tour takes you across the Italian border on a 30 minutes bus ride to neighboring Slovenia where you'll visit Lipica.
The Lipica Stud Farm is the cradle of all Lipizzaner horses in the world. Nowadays it is one of the most beautiful cultural and historical monuments of the Republic of Slovenia, its rich history reaching back to the year of 1580. It has been boasting of the tradition of breeding and selecting pure-breed horses. In the 1960’s the Lipica Stud Farm established the Classic Riding School which still participates in worldwide equestrian events. The history of Lipica is closely intertwined with the Habsburgs who ruled as many as 650 years over an extensive part of baroque Europe.  Horses, the Spanish horse was considered an ideal breed, were at the time a crucial strategic advantage and were thus of outstanding importance to the Habsburgs.The soil and climate of the Karst are very similar to that of Spain which is why the Archduke Charles chose to build the royal stud farm in 1578 in the Karst in the abandoned summer residence of the Bishop of Trieste in this area. On 19 May 1580 he signed an agreement to restore the estate. At the end of the visit we will drive back to Trieste.

A valid Passport or European Community ID Card is required to border into Slovenia.
