Piran and Portoroz Holidays

Welcome to 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 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.

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.


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.

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.

"I wanted to send you an e-mail now that we are back from our wonderful holiday. My wife and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude to you and the team at Diamond Star for arranging a truly unique style of holiday that we are still talking about to friends and family two weeks after we came home. The places we have visited, and the things we have seen were truly amazing, it will take a month or more to sort through our photos"  Andrew and June Welch - 24 Oct 2022

"Back from our holiday to Istanbul/Cappadocia what an awesome holiday. The hot air balloon was out of this world. Thank you Diamond Star for making it all possible special thanks to Nazan. I recommend this company to make your dreams come true."  Mrs Angela Bailey - 6 Oct 2022

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
