Town Izola Between Piran & Koper
Today Isola is a pleasant and romantic small fishing town in which traditions of fishing and crafts are still alive, this being especially visible during the summer period when the traditional summer fishing festival takes place all over town.
The oldest building in Izola is the Church of Mary of Haliaetum, consecrated to protect fisherman and fishery. At the top of the island stands the church of St. Maurus, the town’s patron saint. Legend has it that the townspeople prayed to their patron to save them from the incoming Genoese navy (adversary of the Venetians).
Design & High Fashion Shopping at Italian Fashion Outlets
True to its tradition of the land of design and high fashion, Italy keeps up with all the major fashion trends. Not only by following them, Italian designers around the world create them. Close to Slovenia, you’ll find two major fashion outlets that can be reached within a pleasant drive in a day.
Enjoy Slovenia Biking Adventures
If your sport spirit does not keep you calm during the holidays, we have the answer. Come and enjoy some beautiful biking Adventures and trails across the Slovenian Coast. You do not have a bike? Don’t worry we can rent you a bicycle at our office or we deliver it at your address.
In order to spend the most out of your time, our team is glad to help by the planning of the itinerary. We know the area and the region from Trieste, Karst, Slovenian Coast and the Croatian Istra. The Parenzana biking trail connects the region from its starting point in Trieste all the way, passing Slovenia, to the Croatian town of Porec or Parenzo, from here also the name Parenzana.
Lippizaner Stud Farm
The history of the Lippizaner Stud Farm is indivisible from the history of the Habsburg dynasty who ruled baroque Central Europe for 650 years.
With just a short drive from Koper, the Lipica estate is within 45 minutes of scenic ride. Once you pass the geographical border of the Mediterranean coast, you are greeted in a new region, called the Karst. Its signature stone houses, wide meadows and the lush green fields and forests are spiced up with the traditional north wind called burja. If you experience its strong breeze you will be lucky to feel the freshness.
Following up our article about the things to do in Portoroz, we just created and released our active tour program. Portoroz has a perfect location for an active break, either in summer months or in spring and autumn it offers a wide selection of different options.
First we would like to divide the activities into the following groups, where each of them represents a different day experience:
Yesterday we had a very nice group, mostly from United States to the lovely town of Piran and its countryside. The tour started with a gentle scenic ride towards Piran, where our professional and multilingual guides took a guided walk through the widening streets of Piran. Its charm, that preserves the Mediterranean vibe and lifestyle is a perfect starting point to discover the region of Slovenian Coast.
Koper is a small Slovenian town, located on the northern Adriatic coast. This former Venetian town used to be an Island, which can still be seen in many parts of the city and its surroundings. Because of the limited space, majority of the streets are narrow, which sometimes makes you feel like walking inside the maze.
