TRS is located in the Northern Adriatic. Dry docks, quays and warehouses are just a short distance from downtown Trieste, a city whose history is closely intertwined with shipbuilding. Some of Italy’s most important ships were built here, and a seafaring culture encouraged the development of a large naval economy sector.


Trieste Airport is located 35 km far from the city centre. The nearest international airports are Venice (150 km) and Ljubljana (115 km).


Trieste is connected to the most important Italian towns as well as with several European capitals by train; the Central Railway Station is close to TRS. Trieste is joined to the Italian and European highways network by the A4 highway.
