Itinerary

A great panoramic view will open on the top of the hill where church of St. George stands tall above the town. From this point you will be able to see Slovenia, Croatia and Italy at the same time. Great place to make some photos! During the tour you will also visit important town squares and even Minorite Monastery with rich history and interesting anecdotes.

Under hot Slovenian sun you might soon get thirsty, so you will stop for a snack and refreshment with local food and wines tasting. This region is widely known for it's amazing wine like Malvazija (white) and Refošk (red), so you will be the judge which suits you better.

The most iconic person from Piran was Giuseppe Tartini, so soon you will notice everything is about Tartini here. A Venetian Baroque composer and violinist was born in one of the oldest aristocratic Piranian families. Tartini's most famous work is the "Devil's Trill Sonata," a solo violin sonata that requires a number of technically demanding double stop trills and is difficult even by modern standards. According to a legend, Tartini was inspired to write the sonata by a dream in which the Devil appeared at the foot of his bed playing the violin.

After the tour our guides will be happy to recommend where to go for a nice meal, ice cream, coffee or a glass of wine. Don't forget to ask where to buy a souvenir for a nice memory from this beautiful gem on the southwest edge of Slovenia.
