Piran and Portoroz Pearls of the Slovenian Adriatic Coast Day Trip from Ljubljana
"This petite Venetian port can hold its own against anyone including the imperial capital just over the horizon that was responsible for much of its fortune. In fact Piran does have the same kind of open-air museum feel to it as Venice only on a smaller scale. This stunning town is rich with history that extends way back into the past. This ancient sea port retains its medieval charm in its narrow winding streets huddled houses numerous squares and churches. In its architecture the influence of the Venetian Republic can be seen everywhere. In Piran you will feel as though you have stepped right into a picture postcard. You will be charmed! In the main square you will be greeted by the statue of the most famous son of Piran
