Grand Hotel Duchi D’Aosta
Enjoy the artistic and historical heritage of Trieste
What we think
Built in 1873, The Grand Hotel Duchi d’Aosta stands on an area with an ancient history and a strong vocation for hospitality. Since 1300, starting with the Hospitium Magnum, it has been home of some of the most influential nobles, intellectuals and historical characters over the centuries. Today it is a charming Relais & Chateaux that aims to preserves the artistic and heterogeneous memory of our territory. The recent renovation is inspired by complexity, contrasts and reflections to introduce modern interpretations and design nuances while preserving the heritage of the site.
You are welcomed in a “theatrical” space through the original wooded door to the historic reception counter, made from glass fused with golden and bronze, that highlight the same flickering reflections of Trieste’s lights on the sea. The staircase area has been transformed into a “vertical” art gallery, with temporary exhibitions that give proud to the local artistic soul. It leads to Rooms and Suites that are all different and describe the connotative aspects of the city of Trieste, by coexisting the original space and contemporaneity.
The F&B counterpart Harry’s has been renewed as well, still maintaining its appeal and unique vibe of the original Harry’s Bar, born in Venice thank to Arrigo Cipriani, and it found its own spot in the extraordinary city of Trieste. Harry’s fully represents a brand that is synonymous with eno-gastronomic excellence. Among the cornerstones of Harry’s philosophy, there is one that is particularly important to the chef Matteo Metullio Davide De Pra, they call it: QUALITY-MILE. Their eno-gastronomic journey blends local elements and far away ingredients, land and sea; constantly looking for the quality without territorial limits, as a ship ready to sail towards new worlds.
