This part of the city was modernized in the last 10-15 years. It still has some attraction - Roman theater - but the real Old City feeling is not there anymore. This was actually the "ghetto" of the Jews, but today you wont find anything from from them.
Citta Vecchia is the most interesting part of Trieste to me, such a contrast to the splendid edifices of the newer Austro-Hungarian buildings. Charming, quirky and inviting, this is Italy at its very best.
The Old Town of Trieste is nothing great and certainly not worth going out of your way to visit. Trieste has a few decent restaurants but the sights and history is lacking.

The heart of the Old Town is Piazza dell'Unita d'Italia. This is huge with magnificent buildings facing the sea. Behind it, climb up the narrow streets and you will find the San Giusto Castle and Cathedral. The Roman theater is midway up the hill and is well preserved, though smaller than Aosta's theater.
