Departure from Ljubljana at 8.00 am towards Slovenian Istra.
Our first visit is dedicated to Hrastovlje church from Middle Ages with the defensive wall and dance of death gothic paintings from 1490, an extraordinary achievement of medieval iconography.
The next sightseeing is dedicated to Koper, once an island city. Bounded by sea and hills in south-west Slovenia diplays its rich 1000-year history at every step. A walk through the old city centre is a walk through the past and a true cultural experience. We will visit the picturesque palace in venetian gothic style was once the headquarters of the city’s rulers and today it serves as town hall, the old salt storage, city gate and the largest city fountain, which was first mentioned in 1423 and the last station of the aqueduct.
Short drive to Piran. This old port town with remnants of a medieval wall is considered to be one of the most authentic and most photogenic towns on the Adriatic coast. We will start our tours at pictoresque Tartini Square, named after the famous violinist who was born here. We will walk past Venetian houses through lovely narrow streets to the Church of St. George with a panoramic view.
We will finish our tour with a olive oil degustation, typical for this region. Return to Ljubljana.
