Piran and Portoroz

Piran is the jewel of Slovenia’s Adriatic coast - a beautiful Italianate town on a lovely peninsula. Just a short drive down the coast, is the larger resort of Portoroz, the ‘city of flowers’, which became a favourite of the Habsburg aristocracy.

Piran
Piran is the perfect spot for a relaxed summer holiday - spend your days enjoying the beautiful Adriatic coast, swimming in the clear waters and soaking up the sun. Wander the streets of the beautiful medieval town, with its grand Venetian architecture. The ambience is sleepy and it is a fantastic place to while away the hours. Meander through narrow alleys and winding streets, coming upon impressive squares. Take a walk along the old city walls and admire the views over the peninsula, offering a panoramic vista of the coast. 

Portoroz
Just a short drive down the coast, is the larger resort of Portoroz, the ‘city of flowers’, which became a favourite of the Habsburg aristocracy, who built the grand Kempinski Palace here in 1910. They came for the therapeutic spa treatments which still attract visitors today. Its palm-lined promenade runs the length of the resort, with its man-made sandy beach. It offers a good standard of hotel accommodation and some excellent restaurants.

What to do in Piran and Portoroz
The region is known for its wine and an interesting day out is to visit the nearby vineyards and sample the excellent local wines. The surrounding countryside is also home to many interesting caves. The Secovlje salt pans have now become a wildlife sanctuary, its marshlands the habitat of protected flora and fauna, and a popular spot with birdwatchers, especially during migration. 


Connections

Although Piran is in Slovenia, Slovenia’s coastline is under 30 miles long, so it is very close to the borders with Italy and Croatia, and, therefore, easily reached from a number of airports including Trieste (Italy) and Pula (Croatia) as well as Ljubljana.  


Transfers and Distances

1.5 hours drive from Trieste Airport (Italy); 2 hours from Ljubljana.

"First impressions when we saw the gulet was 'wow!' The crew were so welcoming and the cabin beyond our expectations. Everything was perfect, the food was plentiful and delicious. The gulet was spacious and comfortable and sleeping on deck under the stars and watching the sunrise is something really special. Thank you, thank you. An unforgettable holiday that was so, so special..."  Mr & Mrs Guy

"Our holiday in Turkey exceeded our expectations. Cappadocia was interesting and beautiful. It was exciting staying in cave. Istanbul was amazing. We had very little previous experience of Turkey and Turkish people, so we enjoyed the beauty of the country and friendly hospitality of the people. We felt safe and not at all threatened in the city. The quality of food and service in restaurants was good. Efes beer is very tasty."  Mr David Hyam
