Take the tram #2 from Piazza Oberdan to Opicina. Alight at the Obelisco, and take a walk along the pedestrian Strada Vicentina (better known as Strada Napoleonica - don't ask for Strada Vicentina if you are asking for directions, nobody will know what it is) to Prosecco. The views are superb. The tram has been recently fixed derailed and is it's not doing the entire route againanymore, but there is a replacement bus service. Do not miss it if you come to Trieste! (The tram is going to reopen to the public in the summer of 2014)
