UWC Adriatic

A College on the Adriatic Sea spread out across the village of Duino at the cultural crossroad of Italian, Slovene and Austrian heritage. In Duino you are very unlikely to feel that you are “out of the world”. You will appreciate being part of an international and English-speaking college in a peaceful Italian village. Duino Castle appears in all its majesty at the center of the village, with the ruins of the Old Castle next to it. As a seaside village, Duino has the Porto: a beautiful pier looking out upon the striking Adriatic Sea. Woods surround Duino and are ideal for jogging or walks. The famous "Rilke Path" starts just in front of the Foresteria residence. The village is located between two cities (Monfalcone and Trieste) which are easily accessible thanks to an efficient bus service. The village has several small shops for daily needs but these larger cities offer a much wider variety and lower prices. There are many interesting places reflecting the beautiful nature and historical heritage of Italy in the vicinity, such as Venice, Padova, Trieste, Aquileia and Grado. .

Transportation: The nearest airport is Trieste International Airport (Ronchi dei Legionari), only 20 minutes drive from Duino and served by bus no. 51 or taxi. - Venice Marco Polo Airport Venice airport is about 2 hours from the College. Upon arrival at Venice airport, take a bus to Mestre railway station and take the train to Monfalcone (see above). - Ljubljana Airport Ljubljiana is also an alternative but there are no direct public transport connections. It is about 1 hour 30 minutes by car from Duino.
