Castello di Miramare
This castle was the home of Maximilian until he was forced to leave and become the Emperor of Mexico. The next resident, Duke Amedeo of Savoy made Castello di Miramare the seat for various military commands. In 1955, it was transformed into a museum. The castle still has the original furniture commissioned by Maximilian. There is a chapel; the Japanese and Chinese rooms, rich in oriental ornaments; and the apartments where the Duke of Savoy lived. Miramare is set in an extraordinary park, which extends over 54 acres. Guided tours are available upon request. Call for tour, parking and admission fees.
This is the only Austrian castle built on the sea. Miramare has art, history, a wonderful garden and astonishing views. You can enjoy a walk in the park. But you can also just sit and look at the sea, the park and the spectacular castle.
