The port (along with the province in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, of which the port is the capital) is pronounced in the Italian language with three syllables: 'tree-EST-eh', IPA: /tri ˈɛst e/. In English, those who do not want to sound Italian pronounce it with two syllables, as 'tree-EST', /trɪ ˈɛst/.
