Piran & Istrian Flavors

Taste Traditional Istria

Panoramic & Piran & Wine cellar & Typical Lunch

Depart from Trieste and drive south following Slovenia’s precious Adriatic coastline, a strip of land only 27 miles long, wedged between Italy and Croatia. What the coastline lacks in length, it makes up for in beauty. It’s particularly picturesque around Izola, where you will stop for photos of this traditional fishing village. Upon reaching Piran, a spectacularly scenic village on the tip of a thin peninsula, you will enjoy on short walking tour and some free time to wander its narrow, atmospheric streets. Much of the architecture is 15th-century Venetian Gothic, lending the village a wonderfully medieval feel. A statue of Guissepe Tartini stands in the marbled main square, a tribute to the 18th-century Piran-born violinist and composer. Elsewhere you will see historical churches, inviting cafes and the picture-perfect port.

Continuing on, you will pass Portorož, a lovely coastal village whose fortunes were once linked to the vast salt pans nearby. While no longer valued commercially, the salt pans provide a fine habitat for birds and other wildlife. On the way you will also visit the traditional villages on Istrian countryside, which are surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and farms.There we’ll take a time to learn the importance of wine in Slovenian culture and to enjoy in tasting of the local wines, prosciutto, olive oil and cheese as well.

Our last stop will be on an authentic farm where we will be treated with typical local lunch. Simple rural ambient, excellent home-made food, wine and as well wonderful horses will surely make your trip unforgettable. Tour concludes with relaxing scenic ride back to Trieste.
