Muggia is an Italian port-town in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Overlooking the Bay of Muggia, Muggia is literally devoid of tourists. This charming town is such a local experience if you ever visit Friuli Venezia.

Muggia’s architecture is highly influenced by the Venetians. Its Piazza- Macroni boasts a statue of a winged lion which is a symbol of Venice since centuries. The piazza has a Duomo that is dedicated to Saint John and Paul.

The town is walkable in an hours and just climbing a few stairs you can see Castello di Muggia. Though the castle is now a private property it can be visited if you book in advance.

Muggia left me mesmerized because it was so different from the rest of the towns.

Despite staying in Trieste (very close to Muggia) which was equally charming and beautiful, I had an inkling to book a night in Muggia that day. Sadly due to lack of time, I could only make it a short day trip.

A dull day, yet so beautiful

But I will go again someday to stroll through its tranquil seaside. Muggia had that kind of effect on me.
