Know More about this tour

Piran is one of the oldest and most beautiful Slovene towns with rich history and culture. Almost 500 years lasting Venetian influence has given this town an inimitable charm. Its culture heritage is not at home only in museums since the architectural and artistic pearls, which decorate the everyday life of the local people, can be found at every corner.

Giuseppe Tartini, the world famous composer and violinist, who was born and raised in Piran, had a great impact on the town. Today, his bronze statue adorns the towns main square together with Tartinis house where visitors can admire one of his violins. The Tartini Square is surrounded by majestic buildings, such as the richly decorated 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. Pirans town wall, narrow streets, fishermens nets, compact houses that rise up the slope and beautiful sea will give you the feeling of walking through a painting.

On this panoramic trip along the Slovene coast you will also visit the coastal towns of Portoro, Izola and Koper, where a tourist guide will tell you about the main attractions, historical facts and local tradition. Portoro, which literally means 'Port of Roses', is a popular tourist destination with hotels, casinos and beautiful beaches. Nearby are located the Seovlje natural salt pans where salts are extracted from the pure sea water using interesting traditional methods. On this trip you will also have the chance to admire a typical Istrian village and refresh 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. During the trip you will be able to enjoy a splendid view of the sea, with the Alps in the background, and you will have plenty of time to take some wonderful photos.
