Silversea Luxury Cruises À PIRAN

Slovenia might not immediately spring to mind when it comes to coastal countries – in fact, with just 46 km of coastline, you would be forgiven for overlooking it all together. Yet, within that small distance lives some of the Adriatic’s finest treasures. One such place is Piran. At just over 120 km from Ljubljana, you’ll find the small but perfectly formed town is perched on a rocky peninsula and surrounded by pristine waters. Oozing Mediterranean charm, Piran’s rich Venetian heritage is everywhere. View more

Unsurprising really, as the city was governed by the Republic of Venice from 1283 to 1797 (and until the mid-20th century, Italian was the dominant language, although this has been overtaken by Slovenia in recent years). The Italian touch is visible from the city’s architecture (the main square is named after the famous Italian composer Giuseppe Tartini) to the local Istrian cuisine. The oval shaped square is the ideal spot to start your exploration of Piran, which is best done on foot. Wander into the labyrinthine streets of the old town – think narrow streets and compact houses topped with the picture perfect terracotta tiles so typical of the region – and take a few hours just drinking in the atmosphere. Pop into one of the little Catholic churches or hike up to St. George’s on the top of the hill for an example of grandiose Venetian Renaissance architecture. Alternatively, head for the seaside walk – which incidentally serves as the a beach for many – for a taste of everyday local life.
