The Villa Bazzoni and Castello Basevi sites of the INAF-OATs are uphill the San Giusto Castle hill, 10-15 minutes walks from Trieste city center where most hotels and restaurants are located. We suggest to book your hotel at downtown sea level and get to the meeting site on foot or by bus. Suggested hotels are:

  • Hotel Impero, near the train station, 30 min. walk from the Observatory, but near convenient bus stops (n. 1 or 15 & 16)

  • Hotel Continentale, a little more expensive, 20 min. walk or bus 15-16

Other hotels and accommodation can be found at the Turismo FVG Accommodation page (choose Trieste and Karst as area and Trieste as locality, have a look at the map here below for suitable hotel locations).
