  Port Map

Trieste is a major port city in Italy. The port is located in north-eastern Adriatic Sea, approx 145 km (90 mi) east of Venice. Near Trieste (in Monfalcone) is located the Monfalcone Shipyard - one of Fincantieri-owned shipbuilding yards. Fincantieri is currently ranked among the world's largest shipbuilding companies. Fincantieri's other merchant shipbuilding yards are Marghera (Venice), Sestri Ponente (Genoa), Ancona, Castellammare di Stabia (Naples) and Palermo (Sicily), plus the naval shipyards Riva Trigoso (Genoa) and Muggiano (La Spezia).

Port Trieste (Italy)

The city features Roman ruins including an archway and a theatre. Sights in the old German town include the Castello (1470), today housing a medieval museum, and 14th-century Cathedral of San Giusto including part of a Roman temple. Tourists can also visit nearby Miramare Castle, built for Archduke Maximilian (Emperor Maximilian of Mexico) in 1850.

Originally, Trieste was a Roman colony. It came under the control of Venice and later Austria for whom it was a prime port. In 1915 Trieste became part of Italy as part of the World War I treaty settlements. However, the key position made it a prize in WW2 (1939-1945) and control switched from Germany to Yugoslavia and Italy (up to 1954).

Port Trieste (Italy) cruise port

City's location made it a major commercial cargo port. During the 19th century was created Porto Nuovo (district northeast to downtown).

On November 26, 2018, MSC Cruises officially announced the acquisition of a significant stake in the holding company TAMI (Trieste Adriatic Marine Initiatives Srl) that owns and manages Trieste Terminal Passeggeri (port's ferry and cruise terminal). In 2020, MSC will start homeport operations from Trieste (roundtrip itineraries).

In October 2020 became operational a new Gottwald Mobile Harbor Crane at Port Trieste's new cargo terminal. The new gantry crane (manufactured by Konecranes) handles TEU-containers, general- and heavy project cargoes. The new terminal is operated by PLT (Piattaforma Logistica Trieste SrL) - a public-private partnership between local companies. The new smart crane (Model 5, variation G HMK 5506) has max lifting capacity 125 tons, max working radius 51 m (167 ft) and can handle Post-Panamax class vessels (boxships, cargo carriers, heavy project cargoes). The crane has a built-in external (electric) power supply capability.
