Start planning your cruise and book your excursions from Monfalcone.
As the Northernmost port in the Mediterranean Sea, Monfalcone is the bridge between Western and Eastern Mediterranean cultures. Thanks to its historical maritime tradition, it is also the birthplace of many of our MSC cruise ships.
Its connection with Venice is not just a territorial one, based on the proximity of the 2 cities, but mainly a long-lasting relationship dating back from the Middle Ages up to the 19th Century: La Rocca, the symbol of the city, is the most reknowned heritage of this bond.
Sea, history and nature: get the best from your MSC Cruises excursions from Monfalcone to its surroundings.
• The Miramare Castle
• The Duino Castle
• The Rilke Path
Spend your day during your Mediterranean MSC cruise holiday immersing yourself in the majestic Miramare Castle, the most iconic monument on this side of the Adriatic coast, with more than 20 rooms, its stunning panoramic views over the Gulf of Trieste and an immense park featuring ponds, sculptures and rare plants, mixing the elegance of traditional Italian and English gardens.
Experience the Medieval atmosphere of the Duino Castle, romantically overlooking the sea, featuring an enchanting Mediterranean garden and a few artistic masterpieces: it’s no coincidence that celebrities like the Princess Sissi, the poet R.M. Rilke and the composer Liszt (and his piano) have stayed in this splendid location.
A relaxing walk in nature suitable to everyone offering unforgettable views with which the gaze enters the blue among white impressive rocks: the Rilke path is an unforgettable choice to immerse yourself in the enveloping landscapes and scents of the Mediterranean scrub!
