• TRIESTE. 32. Route. 211
The Passeggio di 8. Andrea (PI. A, E, 7), an avenue 3 M.
long, skirting the coast and commanding a series of fine views,
leads on the E. side of the town, past the Villa Murat, the Lloyd
Arsenal, and the Gas Works, to Servbla. The extensive * Wharves
of the Lloyd Co. (PI. C, D, 7), opposite Servola, may be visited
daily, except Sat. and Sun., 9-11 and 2-4 (tickets obtained at the
Lloyd Office in the Piazza Grande; guide 60 kr.). — On the road
to Zaule, famous for its oyster-beds, are the handsome Cemeteries.
A favourite resort is the Boschetto (brewery) to the E. of the
town, reached by the tramway (10 kr.) through the Corso and the
Corsia Stadion, passing the shady Giardino Pubblico (PI. E, 2).
Shady walks ascend hence to (i/2 hr.) the Villa Ferdinandea (Re¬
staurant al Cacciatore), on a plateau 755 ft. above the sea. Adjacent
is the Villa Revoltella, now the property of the town, with park and
chapel, commanding a charming view of town, sea, and coast.
