Monumento Leonardo Manzi/Piazza Unita d'Italia
Piazza Unità d'Italia (English: Unity of Italy Square) is the main square in Trieste, a seaport city in northeast Italy. Only a few steps separate the square from the Adriatic coast. If you ask many Europeans, even locals, they will tell you that this square is the largest in Europe. Before 1919, the square was called Piazza Grande. When the ceremonies of receiving high-ranking officials from other countries are organized, it is the president who welcomes another president here. And this is usually on the red carpet.

Let's meet in a few minutes near The Fountain of the Four Continents.
Place #2
Distance: 0.19mi , Attraction : Fountain of Four Continents

Piazza Unità d'Italia, 6, 34121 Trieste TS, Italy
POI 2 Tour Image
Piazza/Fontana dei Quattro Conteninti
The Fountain of the Four Continents is located right at the Piazza Unita del Italila. The fountain of four continents was created in 1750 by Giovanni Mazzoli. The sculpture is a symbol of four then known parts of the world: Europe, Asia, Africa and America.

Going down Via Luigi Einaudi we will find ourselves in Piazza Ponteroso. There I will tell you a little more about the square itself, the famous Grand Canal and the statue built in honor of the Irish writer James Joyce.
