“Loved this hidden treasure”

Civico Museo Sartorio
Ranked #21 of 406 things to do in Trieste
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 September 2013

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 of the visit is in the basement, where during the latest renovation works, they discovered roman ruins and a mosaic floor. There is also housed a collection of renovated artwork, some as old as 15 century, with before and after pictures and blurbs explaining their importance. I highly recommend it.

Very interesting museum of you want to see How Triestes commercial elite / aristocracy used to live. Nice big rooms full of antiques. Amazing drawings of Tiepolo. The Sta Chiara tryptichis old but not the best one i' ve ever seen. Go for the splendid interiors, btw big chance you are alone ...

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.

I spent 90 minutes here and enjoyed all of it. The guides who were on hand to point me to the places of interest were very good. One guide especially took me to see the Tryptich of St Chiara and also to the basement to see the exhibition of art which had been hidden since circa 1940 and removed from the country but now returned. He explained about each of the exhibits in English good enough for me to understand. Also in the Museum there are A4 sheets in each room to give an explanation of the contents and information about the family Sartorio.
