After completing the European Peace Walk from Vienna to Trieste I came across the Civico Museo Sartorio. The guide was wonderful and spoke excellent English. The building was mostly set up as a period piece with beautiful furnishings which included, my highlight, the kitchen. Such a wonderful display of copper ware and utensils. A gem.

What a wonderful surprise! One can only visit the museum with a guide. This is because they don't have enough personnel to keep an eye on all the rooms. So they organize guided visits every one hour and fifteen minutes. The guide was very knowledgeable and kind. And I was the only visitor so I had a very personalized tour.... More

It has everything, the man who made the collection has left the most amazing bits of history as well as the 240 Tiepolo drawings that are out of this world. Make sure you go to the ground floor to see the other collection and the scuptures

It was late afternoon on a Saturday and we weren't sure we could gain admittance because it looked like a small wedding reception was happening. We were delighted with a guide that made this museum truly meaningful and a true delight to experience! This building is a Mansion with Old World craftsmanship throughout. The Salon with the Tiepolo drawings were... More

We were recieved shortly (an hour) before closing time and given an intelligent, coherent and responsive guided tour. The guide was clearly an academic rather than a scripted automaton. The collection is fantastically rich. Generally I hate guided tours. This one was highly satisfactory. I believe that unguided tours are available at weekends and bank holidays.

Extensive art collection , modern to Renaissance. The Renaissance collection is worth the admission alone! An old elegant home houses this museum, and the living rooms have been beautifully restored. The 19th century kitchen was intact, with the stoves and cookware. Very unusual. Personal guides assisted us, mostly in English, to appreciate the collection.

Not far from the sea and the center pedestrian area, this home previously belonging to a family of Trieste merchants was donated along with all its contents to the city. Besides the incredible collection of 246 Tiepolo sketches, the 4th largest collection in the world, and other fantastic artwork, there is a plaster statue hall. Perhaps the most intriguing part...

I had the museum virtually to myself and was able to wander from room to room enjoying beautiful paintings and pictures, tapestries, furniture, china and room decorations. Very good helpful notes to most rooms in English.

Up where the Castle is, there is Cathedral, an underground Museum which is full of arte facts and sculptures. Very nice and interesting of course but there is water running down when it rains and spoils the fan of the visit. It is part of a visit to the Castle.
