Our ship arrived in Trieste early this morning. This is a new port for Costa, they were welcomed with quite a show of water. Jerry and I watched it all from the balcony. We also enjoyed seeing all the boating and fishing action going on outside our window. The water was also loaded with jelly fish. We had a great view of the huge square right across the street too. We could hardly wait until noon for our appointment to get the keys to our apartment for the next month. I was so excited, I totally forgot to take pictures of the apartment. We were very happy with it, it is going to be a fun month in Trieste.
We were surprised to see so many restaurants, shops and grocery stores right in walking distance of the apartment. We also have a bus station right next store. We purchased tickets for a month of on off riding all over the city, the cost was only $32 Euros each. The prices for groceries and everything seems to be very reasonable, way lower than expected. The city is also very beautiful, it is going to be a wonderful month. We can’t wait to pack our bags tonight and move in tomorrow. We had one last dinner with all our new friends from the ship and said our goodbyes. We are all joining each other on Facebook to keep in touch too. It was an incredible cruise, we highly recommend Costa Cruises to all our friends.
