A luxurious stay at an opulent hotel on the seafront in the port city of Trieste - with welcome treats, a restaurant discount and a sea view

Classical columns, glittering chandeliers, period frescoes, and a monumental white façade by forward-thinking Austrian architect Ladislaus Fiedler set the scene at this ravishing palace hotel on Trieste’s seafront. Dating back to 1912, when it was a huge draw for aristocrats, artists, and diplomats staying in the Italian port city, there’s still plenty here to impress; mostly timeless Adriatic views, a top-notch service, and lashings of old-world glamour with a mod twist. It's no wonder that Savoia Excelsior Palace Trieste boasts a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Scoring high on the design front, all of the 142 uniquely-styled and very luxurious guest rooms and suites come with soothing hues, interesting artwork, high ceilings, carpeted flooring, and all mod cons.

Elsewhere, there’s a small library with a skylight and a sophisticated gourmet restaurant for next-level national cuisine (including Trieste classics) paired with wines from Italian and Slovenian producers. Equally impressive is Le Rive Bar - a divine-looking spot where you can happily chill out with post-sightseeing aperitifs, digestifs, and made-to-order cocktails while gazing up at the scalloped ceiling or out across the Gulf of Trieste.
