A settlement can be dated back at least 4,000 years where the centre of modern day Patras now stands. However, despite this ancient heritage, Patras is very much a modern city: it was the first city in Greece to introduce electric trams and was named European Capital of Culture in 2006.
There is plenty to see and do in Trieste, largely due to the city's historic and colourful past. The castles of Miramare and San Giusto are well worth a visit; the castle of Miramare is home to beautiful gardens and ponds and the castle of San Giusto houses a museum of weapons. Trieste also has many fine churches, such as the cathedral of San Giusto, the basilica of San Silvestro and the temple of Holy Trinity and St. Spiridio.
Trieste is also home to some interesting archaeological remains and sites; the Arch of Riccardo dates from 33 B.C. and can be seen in the Piazzetta Barbacan in the city's old town. The Roman theatre, situated at the foot of the San Giusto hill is worth a visit; you can see the statues that used to stand in the theatre at the Town Museum.
Trieste is well connected with the rest of Italy and beyond; the airport provides daily departures to Rome, Milan and Vienna, and the city's rail station provides excellent rail links with some of the larger Italian cities.
