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.

Trieste Guide

The Italian city of Trieste is located at the edge of north east Italy and is situated close to the border with Slovenia and lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The city is one of Italy's most unique with is former grandeur still in evidence today with is grand buildings complete with neoclassical facades. Despite the grandeur on display, the city is frequently overlooked by visitors who choose instead to visit other Italian cities that have a more established tourist infrastructure such as Venice, which is around 160 km to the west of Trieste. The city is a great place to be based in order to explore this part of Italy's coast but the city itself has a number of tourist attractions, museums, ancient Roman remains and some lovely cafes and restaurants in which to relax. Many of the city's most popular attractions are located in the medieval quarter of the Old Town and one attraction that is hard to miss is the Basilica di San Silvestro as it sits on top of the Colle Capitolino hill. Also in the city is the impressive 14th century Trieste Cathedral which is found overlooking the Piazza della Cattedrale.
