A Recent Review of this tour

Danijela was very knowledgeable about Trieste and did a great job of giving us an overview of the city. We learned a great deal about the history and culture of Trieste and were able to identify sites to return to for more in depth exploration. Her english was excellent and her pride in and appreciation for Trieste was much appreciated.
