Muggia- A Precious Italian Port Town in Friuli Venezia Giulia

Muggia is an Italian port-town in the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Overlooking the Bay of Muggia, it is the last of the Istrian towns. Muggia is extremely picturesque and almost devoid of tourists and is a great day trip from Trieste.

WHAT TO SEE IN MUGGIA

    1. Admire Muggia’s architecture which is highly influenced by the Venetians. In Piazza Macroni is a statue of a winged lion that is a symbol of Venice since centuries. The piazza also houses the main church or Duomo dedicated to Saint John and Paul.
    2. Take a walk around the piazza and grab an espresso at any of the Bars.
    3. Move further towards the port and see the fishermen at work
    4. Visit Castello di Muggia, now a private property that can be visited on advance booking.
    5. Have a glass of Friulian wine and watch locals go by their business.
    6. Support a local business and buy something.

Muggia is a mesmerizing town! 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.
