Surely worth the visit, by many aspects. Check the visual side in my MTB Street view movies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DNfYc02Kzw and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTlrzOcewWQ. A very nice city which really makes me feel at home. But do visit the Miramare castle as well, although it's not in the movies.

Visit Trieste, absolutely. In fact, there is more to see than in Ljubljana.

I suggest you doing the following: visit Piazza Unità, which is one of the most beautiful squares in the world. From there, if you're looking the clock tower, on the left you have elegant and wide streets, full of palazzi, which are all pedestrian only. There you can find the second largest synagogue in Europe, the orthodox church and the Ponterosso, a canal with a neoclassical church. The architecture here is Austrian, and resembles Vienna. On the right side of Piazza Unità, on the other hand, you have the old middle-ages part of the city, which is all traffic free. This part of the city has italian mediterranean architecture. Here the streets are very narrow and go uphill towards the city's oldest church (dating back in 8th century, I think), San Giusto. There is also the San Giusto Castle with great scenic views over the city. On the waterfront, consider strolling on the Molo Audace. A must-see is also the Miramare Castle, on the sea, which is on your way to Trieste: it's a unique place, with a nice garden.

Hope it helps to decide :)
