LA CITTÀ DEI SOGNI - CITY OF DREAMS

Riserblog trieste 5


Trieste is a city, whose charme is instantly enchanting. The location of the city of coffee itself is already convincing enough: You turn around the corner and there it is, on the beach, looking on the sparkling oceans and the castle Miramare. The journey from Carinthia to Trieste and back is nice due to many reasons: You start at the beautiful lake Ossiacher See and make your trip through three countries. First you cross the Passo Predil at the boarder between Slovenia and Italy - a curvy route with diverse characteristics and beautiful view.

Take a break at the Raiblsee, because here, high above everything else, your everyday life is far away. The tour on the motorcycle is always a little bit as if you were sitting in a bubble that pops only after you have arrived at your destination. Until then, the world is far away and you can dive into relaxation and adventure.

A small coffee break at the lake therefore makes the feeling of holidays complete and perfect. Meanwhile driving through valley of Socatal, you will feel like entering an adventure story and you might get the feeling that Robin Hood is waiting around the corner - of course, he doesn’t, but still, the bright blue river and the waterfalls make a nice background and preparation for the view on the ocean that you are so much looking forward to. You will be rewarded by the Slovenian Toscana and drive through mild hilly landscapes of Goriška Brda, bevor Cormons signals the last part of the trip before Trieste. The game of who sees the ocean first will not even start, because the view is breathtaking when the bay opens up in front of you - and you can only think about a nice spot for your first espresso in Italy. Someone told us we should better put our bikes into a garage somewhere - which we do and soon are ready to take a walk around Piazza Unità d’Italia, the epic, central situated piazza in the middle of Trieste. Here old & ancient hotels are sitting one next to each other and overlooking the tourists wandering around.

So now we’re not being boring any longer and will tell you what you really wanna know: The Best Of culinary spots on location. Tell us on RISER how your journey to Trieste was, when you come back home! We’ll be happy to see where you went and if there are more spots to add to our list of Must Sees...

Da Pepi
In the past, Trieste was part of the Habsburgs reign - you still can see that today, looking at the architecture. Also in terms of food there still are some similarities to Austria. For everyone who likes it meaty, da Pepi is the best place to be: Try everything from the pig and have a nice beer with it!

Buffet da Pepi
Via della Cassa di Risparmio, 3

Salumare
This small place is an aperitive place & fish bar at the same time - Trieste people come to eat sour sardines and other appetizers with a glass of white wine and talk about the day. In a city rooted to the ocean, a place like this is a necessary must visit. The small place is good to have a drink at the bar or even better outside. And the music is nice. You’ll see, you’ll wanna stay.

SaluMare
Via di Cavana, 13/A
+39 040 322 9743

Al Faro
For all of you who love delicious food and an epic view over the bay. Call and ask for a free table, and eat as much fish as you can! A bit outside of the center, but absolutely worth it.

Trattoria al Faro
Scala Giuseppe Sforzi, 2
+39 040 410092

DNapoli
Best pizza in town - pizza from southern Italy, Napels in particular, is different from the one in the North: Thick crust, not thin like paper. Try it at the best place in Trieste (so say the locals) DNapoli. But reserve a table! It’s always full here.

DNapoli
Via Armando Diaz, 10

Coffee
You cannot be wrong - choose whatever bar you want, Trieste is the city of coffee, everywhere the coffee is awesome. The coffee company illy is at home in this city, and you can smell it everywhere.

espressamente illy
Via delle Torri, 3

Caffè Tommaseo

CRUISIN’ AROUND AUSTRALIA: FROM WOLLONGONG TO MELBOURNE

Published by MOGI at July 20, 2018 in Articles
Heading from Wollongong, down the Princess Highway, all the way to Eden. Sounds like a long way but, there are heaps of stops on the way. It could take 8 to 12 hours to do it, if you really wanted to. But for me, I’ll cruise, I didn’t need to stop until Batemans Bay for fuel, already been there so I pushed on, through to Bega and a stop at the Yellow Peach Dam Rest Area, was awesome...

THE COUNTRY-, BLUES & WHISKEY MOTORCYCLE TOUR. GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.2

Published by GINA DREWES at July 13, 2018 in Articles
I don't listen to country, rarely blues - and whiskey is not necessarily the drink of my choice. But how could I have said no to a route that has the same title and leads through the country where my Harley was born! Although I had not yet had the urge to explore America, this motorcycle route through the southern states aroused my curiosity.

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 8 – THAILAND ON A MOTORBIKE

Published by JOHANNES WEISSBORN at June 08, 2018 in Articles
A sunny day. The last few kilometers accompanied by our guides through Myanmar. The first limestone cliffs appear. From Kawkareik, a well-paved road meanders over the Tenasserim ridge. For the first time since leaving Western Turkey, the tires are clinging to undamaged and grippy asphalt. After 170km Mae Sot is reached, the border town to Thailand: from poverty to wealth. Thailand is an infrastructure and economic paradise.
