Fodor's Review

This 14th-century castle, where in 1912 Rainer Maria Rilke wrote his masterpiece, the Duino Elegies, is just 12 km (7½ miles) from Trieste. Take Bus 44 or 51 from the Trieste train station. The easy path along the seacoast from the castle toward Trieste has gorgeous views that rival the Amalfi Coast and the Cinque Terre. The castle itself, still the property of the Princes of Thurn and Taxis, contains a fine collection of antique furnishings and an amazing Palladian

circular staircase, but the main attractions are the surrounding gardens and the spectacular views.
