Piran Guide

Located on the Gulf of Piran, on the Adriatic Sea coast, lies the Slovenian town of Piran. Having been shaped by the Venetian Republic and Austria-Hungary, the town's historical monuments are quite different from those found in other parts of the country. The town's walls were built to protect it from the Ottomans and many sections of the walls, hailing from different periods, remain and are a popular attraction with visitors.

Located inside the old town walls are charming narrow streets providing visitors with more than a hint of what the town used to be like. In the town's main square sits a statue of perhaps the most famous man in Piran, the well known Guiseppe Tartini. He was a composer and virtuoso violinist who was born in a house a short distance from the square. In the north of Piran's town centre the road takes travellers past the hamlet of Fiesa into Strunjan, while to the south the coastal road leads to Portoroz, with its famous beach. The town eases gently into the new town of Lucija with its very famous marina. Beyond the smaller peninsula of Seca the Secovlje saltpans open to view.

From the town's port ferries operate to Venice in Italy.

Rovinj Guide

The Croatian city of Rovinj lies on the western coast of Istria, the largest Adriatic peninsular, and is roughly one hour away from Trieste, 270 km from Zagreb, roughly 500 km from Vienna in Austria and around 700 km from the German city of Munich. Spread out across an oval-shaped peninsular is the city's Venetian old town where visitors can see small artist workshops which makes this part of the city a thriving cultural centre. Tucked away down narrow streets are some lovely restaurants which are complimented by chic bars located by the waterfront. The Balbi Arch, which is the last remains of the old town wall, marks the beginning of the Venetian old town which is characterised by beautiful cobbled streets along which visitors will find the Rovinj Heritage Museum, housed in a 17th century Baroque palace alongside old artist's workshops on Grisia Street. In this area all roads lead to the Cathedral of St. Euphemia that has stunning views of the Rovinj Archipelago and the Pine forests to the south, from its 60 meter high bell tower.

The port is situated near the centre of the city with ferry services departing to Venice in Italy, with a journey time of 3 hours and 30 minutes when services stop en route in Porec, Pula or Piran. Direct crossings to Venice take around 2 hours and 45 minutes.
