Travel diary: Slovenia #4 – Piran

Slovenia Piran

slovenia travel diary part 1 / part 2 / part 3

I think out of all the places I went to in Slovenia, Piran was my favourite. With it’s narrow, winding streets, beautiful old buildings, and beautiful, beautiful views, I was pretty much in my holiday element.

From the taller points in Piran you can see over all the beautiful red-roofed buildings, as well as Italy and Croatia.

You can walk to Piran from Potoroz, it’s a beautiful seafront walk, though I wouldn’t suggest it in the heat of the day as there is very little shade. Alternatively, there are two buses you can hop on that will drop you right at Piran Habour – one is free (and you have to walk to get to it), the other costs about 2 euro’s for a return ticket.

Piran also has a couple of museums, a beautiful central square, the house of the violinist Tartini – pained my cellist heart but hey, whatever keeps the sister happy – and an aquarium (although the aquarium is just one room…). It’s a fishing town that is larger than Izola, but still really quite peaceful, with a wide variety of ace restaurants. You can also take a boat to Venice if you’re feeling spendy.

This region of Slovenia really was stunningly beautiful, though the heat meant we didn’t really get to do much exploring… I have found myself looking back at the photos and wishing that the weather was the same in England as it was out there… (did we boycott summer or…?)

Hope you’re having a fab weekend, and that you’re enjoying the sporadic British sunshine as we’re getting it!
