Bologna or Trieste?

Which one is more worth to visit? I am going to stay 4 nights either in Trieste or Bologna from Venice.

1. money and cost of these 2 city?

2. How about their surrounding or near by city? It seems that there aren't much good sight seeing place near Trieste. Will it be too much for staying there 4 nights?

Thanks

We went to Cividale del Friuli last month to visit the Archeological Museum and the Longobard Temple. Missed the Duomo because run out of time. It has been really interesting. Nearby is Cormons with few very good wineries.

Towards Trieste Duino's and Miramare's castles are worth a visit. With local travel agencies you could book a day tour to the Postojna Caves in Slovenia which are some of the biggest and most interesting in the world of this kind. In the summertime day trips are also scheduled to visit the Grado laguna islands with or without lunch.

Bologna is a hub for train transprot in that area. YOu can visit Modena, Parma, Ferrara and Ravenna easily from there. Ferrara is a 30 min train journey fron Bologna.

Bologna is known for it';s great food, but there are other sights to see there. Checo out this googl map I have been working on for Bologan.
