Via della Salvia is an island of peace immersed in nature; it is an enchanting pathway in the middle of the woods, between Duino Aurisina and the land of Santa Croce, in the heart of the Trieste Carso. There are several routes to take - you can walk along the road that overlooks the sea or if you happen to be the sporty types, you can head towards the lookout dedicated to the climber Tiziana Weiss crossing the Carsican clearings and moors. In reality the whole journey is pleasant and can be completed in half a day. Landscapes such as this one fill the eyes and warm the heart. Spring and autumn are ideally the best times to go, but a summer evening is not bad either. To get here, take the coastal road that leads to Trieste until you reach a fork with a slope towards the sea on one side and a very steep asphalt road on the other. Take the latter and you will find yourself at the entrance to Via della Salvia. Park up in the neighboring area, fill your lungs with fresh air and there - off you go!
