Off the beaten track: Strada Napoleonica in Trieste, Italy

One of Italy’s best hidden secrets is the Strada Napoleonica (Napoleon’s street) in Trieste. Named, obviously enough because it was built by Napoleon’s troops. The road is over 5km long and is beloved by locals for walks particularly in Spring and Autumn. It’s worth it for the views alone, as the path winds up a mountainside offering breathtaking views of Prosecco and Opicina. If you’re feeling a little lazy, there’s always a tram and in summer, you couldn’t really ask for a better beach than Barcola, right underneath the strada.
