Full description
Piran is one of the oldest and most beautiful Slovene towns, packed with rich history and culture. Almost 500 years of Venetian influence has given this town an inimitable charm. Giuseppe Tartini, the world-famous composer and violinist was born and raised in Piran and had a great impact on the town. Today, his bronze statue adorns the town’s main square together with Tartini’s house, where visitors can admire one of his original violins.

The Tartini Square is surrounded by majestic buildings, such as the Municipal Palace, Tartini Theatre, Maritime Museum, Aquarium, Marine Biological Station, Baroque House and Apollonio Palace. On the hill above the town is the biggest and most important church, the Church of Saint George, which offers a wonderful view. Piran’s town wall, narrow streets, fishermen’s nets, compact houses and of course the beautiful sea will give you the feeling of walking through a painting.

On the panoramic trip along the Slovene coast you will also visit the coastal towns of Portorož, Izola and Koper, where a tour guide will tell you about their main attractions, historical facts and local traditions. Portorož, which literally means 'Port of Roses', is a popular tourist destination with hotels, casinos and beautiful beaches. Located nearby are the Sečovlje natural salt pans where salts are extracted from the pure sea water using interesting and traditional methods. On this trip you will also have the chance to admire a typical Istrian village, where you will be able to familiarize yourself with local food and wine. At the end, you will visit Izola, which is known for its fishing history, and Koper, an important European port and the largest city of the Slovene Coast.
