Flanked by a tourist-residential pedestrian complex built by the architect Luigi Vietti, Marina San Rocco is a nice marina which enjoys a strategic position for a cruise along the coasts of the neighbouring Croatia.
A reference point for the arrival are the third inner breakwater in the harbour of Trieste and the promontory of Punta Sottile which mark the entrance in the bay of Muggia. The marina raises on the right of the bay and it is signaled by a red light and a green one, easily recognizable thanks to its ochre docks. While entering the marina, you can enjoy a beautiful view on Trieste and its Miramare castle. Thanks to its deep bottoms, the structure can receive 546 boats ranging from 8 up to 60 m at both floating and fixed piers while maxi yachts, from 20 to 60 metres, can use other 46 berths.
The narrow mouth of the harbour, oriented towards East, leads to a large outer port where big yachts can easily find a berth. The body of water and the two large inner breakwaters can receive transiting boats up to 35 m. The sea bottom is about 7 m deep. Each berth is provided with drinkable water and electric charging columns. Moreover, the marina offers toilets, showers, car parks, a filling station, Wi-Fi, surveillance and a 24-hour mooring assistance. The marina has a fruitful parternship with the neighbouring shipyard equipped with an efficient engine garage and technical staff for electric and mechanical repairs on wooden and fiberglass boats. The shipyard includes a 160-ton travel lift, a 35-thousand-square-metre garaging area and large hangars (4,000 m2).
Muggia raises in the extreme south-eastern zone of the province of Trieste, on the border between Slovenia and the Gulf of Trieste. Surrounded by medieval walls and overlooked by a 13th-century castle, the city offers a Gothic-Venetian cathedral, the Romanesque Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption and many other interesting churches, in addition to its picturesque alleys, Marconi Square, the Town Hall and the historic centre coverging in the ancient Mandracchio.
The city hosts the popular Carnival of Muggia with its parade floats and elegant customs.
The Gulf of Muggia is composed by small coves, sandy beaches and rocky cliffs covered by oleanders and brooms spread over a 7-kilometre-long coastline. The beaches are all equipped with beach resorts, coffee bars, shops, boat rental and diving centres.
The culinary tradition combines Venetian dishes such as cod, brodetto and sardoni with Austrian specialities, such as calandracca, luganighe, capuzi, jota and bread dumplings and Slovenian dishes, such as cevapcici, rasnici and presnitz. The city is also famous for its extra virgin olive oil and Malvasia wine.
