PIRAN WALKING TOUR
The compact town's history dates back to the Greeks, deriving its name from pyr, the Greek word for fire; centuries ago, bonfires were lit at the tip of the peninsula to guide ships to the port of Koper. Piran has preserved the medieval layout with narrow streets and compact houses, which rise in steps from coastal lowland into the hills and gives the area a typical Mediterranean feel. This delightful land adventure will take us into the heart of this Venetian harbor town. Your local guide will meet you at the SeaDream pier and lead you into the Tartini Square, the heart of Piran, The Square is named for the famous composer and violinist Giuseppe Tartini, who was born in Piran. The most beautiful building in this square is an Venetian Gothic house from the first half of the 15th century, with a typical balcony and window trifora in Venetian Gothic style. The pictu¬resque background of the square is rounded off by the cathedral on a hill with a fine view of the Bay of Trieste. During the tour you will walk through narrow streets and see typical houses, which are decorated with the traditional lion and book. During the adventure you will make a short stop to taste the local wine and snacks of the area.
