The Rilke trail (Italian: Sentiero Rilke, Slovene: Rilkejeva pešpot) is a tourist trail, providing a scenic view of a Gulf of Trieste, named after the Prague poet Rainer Maria Rilke.

It connects the villages of Duino and Sistiana, both in the municipality of Duino-Aurisina.[1]


For a long time the trail was abandoned but in 1987 it was restored by the Province of Trieste.[citation needed]

At the beginning of the path, Sistiana Bay can be seen, and local flora and fauna can be seen at the end, near Duino Castle.

During the course of trail there are three observation points created during World War II.
