To Muggia on the Ferry (short slide show)

August 10, 2014

It’s just a 10 or 15 minute walk to the docks from our place on the hill.  There you can take ferries to various destinations in the Trieste area, as well as some in Slovenia and Croatia.  Today we went to Muggia, just 30 minutes on the ferry.

It’s a small town with a tiny beach, so tiny in fact that some people laid out blankets on concrete pads prepared for that purposes.  The water is crystal clear, and with temperatures in the low 80’s you’ll get plenty warm, hot even in the sun.

We stopped for a coffee in one of the plazas.   There were plenty of people about, casually dressed if not skimpily so in swim suits.

It’s still a bit of a fishing village and we watched two men preparing to take their vessel out.  They were looping some string onto flags, perhaps for crab pots.

The short slide show will give you a good feel for the place.
