You will be picked up from your accommodation in Trieste at 9.00 a.m. to start a wonderful day out exploring two enchanting towns on the Slovenian coast: Piran and Portoroz. A leisurely drive will first take us to Piran, a charming citadel located at the tip of a peninsula which is the westernmost part of Slovenia. You can explore the town on foot or by bike, pedaling through its medieval narrow streets, Venetian-style buildings, marble squares and tight houses which rise in steps from the coastal lowland into the hills giving the whole area a typical Mediterranean look.
Piran is also the birthplace of the famous baroque violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini whose music is still echoing in the winding streets of this beautiful coastal town. Only 2 km. from Piran is Portoroz, the most popular and lively Slovenian tourist center on the coast with a lovely French and Italian Riviera atmosphere.
Developed as a spa resort in the 19th century due to its mild climate, clean air and water and successful treatments with salt water and mud, today it's also an attractive sports and entertainment center that can be visited in every season of the year. Don't forget your swimming suit … there's a beach stop and a relaxing swim in the clear and warm waters of the Adriatic included … (in summer only)!
