Trieste Airport Guide
In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Trieste Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!
A desolate place and there's only one reason to go to this airport.....to leave it shortly after.
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Trieste - Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport.
What to Expect
- A tiny single-terminal airport with very limited shopping and dining options.
- Airport staff fluent in English and Italian
- Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- No specific sleeping spot was mentioned, but there are a few hard metal benches to choose from. The airport is quiet and you probably won’t see any other travelers sleeping in the airport due to the availability of cheap accommodation nearby.
