Why choose Trieste and Friuli Venezia Giulia as your school trip destination?
Trieste has a troubled past: it played a main role during both the First and the Second World War. It is Italy’s least Italian city and during a 40-year period – between 1914 and 1954 – it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, then of the Kingdom of Italy, ruled by the Nazis, then by Tito’s Yugoslavia and under the Allied Military Government, first with the British then with the Americans. On 26 October 1954, when the Italian flag returned to fly in Trieste it did not feature the Savoy coat of arms: it was the flag of the Italian Republic. Thanks to trade and the development of its Port, different ethnic groups and cultures have always lived together in harmony in Trieste, contributing to the creation of the city’s unique historic, architectural and multicultural heritage.
