I’ve told you before Trieste is unlike any other Italian city I’ve seen before, but there was one thing that was pure Italian – the architecture. But, like almost every Italian city or town I’ve seen, Trieste is chock full of palaces. Well, truth be told, for Italians any old public building is called a palazzo, so don’t think Trieste’s entire center is filled with the likes of Versailles. For instance, this is Palazzo del Lloyd Triestino located in Piazza Unita d’Italia. Just a few things about this gorgeous building – it was finished in 1883 and it was built for a prestigious shipping company with its head office in Trieste, which until 2006 it was called Lloyd Triestino.
