Portorož and Piran are outstanding destinations, and superb starting-points for a diversity of trips. The Piran countryside offers you authentic experience and a feeling that the time has stopped here. The hills of Slovenian Istria are dotted with old stone houses. Majestic views stretch from the Adriatic Sea all the way to the Alps above it. Furthermore, there are olive groves and vineyards on the steep slopes of the hills, whereas orchards and vegetable fields dominate in the valleys. Take a ride along the Istrian wine trail. Discover the heritage of Istrian farmers and indulge in exquisite Istrian cuisine.
While strolling around the narrow village streets, you should visit “torklja”, an olive press. If you are there in the autumn – when olives ripen – you could taste freshly pressed olive oil. Alternatively, you may opt for a sea adventure and set off for a sea trip to Venice or treat yourself to first-class shopping in the nearby city of Trieste and in other Italian cities.
