Situado a lo largo de la frontera italiana (y anteriormente era parte de Italia), Piran es una ciudad con encanto situado a lo largo del mar adriático azul en la península de Istria. Sus estrechas calles de piedra de estilo veneciano parecen construidas para pasear arriba y abajo y disfrutar del clima por lo general soleado. Hay una cadena de restaurantes con mesas al aire libre que sirven a la especialidad de la región, pasta con salsa de crema de champiñones y trufa.
I honestly can't say why I like Piran as much as I do. Once a part of the erstwhile Venetian Empire, this Slovenian coastal city on the Adriatic feels a bit like a tiny slice of Venice itself, minus the canals -- the twisty stone alleyways, the closeness to the sea. And yet though nothing, but nothing, can hold a candle to the magic that is Venice itself, Piran still manages to charm, perhaps by feeling much more local than touristic. Climb the rickety staircase of the church belltower for a euro and look down at terracotta roofs of the medieval city, surrounded on three sides by the sea. Walk along the coastal promenade and have a quiet swim in the Adriatic. Mow down on gelato in the central Tartini Square, then pop into a bar-caffe for a beer with the locals.
Piran is cute but it's tiny, like really tiny, like I explored the whole thing in 90 minutes tiny. It was great for a short stop and if the weather was better, I certainly would have gone swimming but I wouldn't spend a lot of time here.
