The Slovenian Riviera at Piran….
We’d been told by numerous people that no visit to Slovenia was complete without sampling the delights of Piran…. so we duly donned our cycling kit and took our chances!! Picturesque Piran is one of the best preserved historical towns on the Adriatic, known for its long pier and Venetian Architecture.
Piran itself, is worthy of a mention for various reasons… the main square with Giuseppe Tartini overlooking its beautiful cafe culture, or the fishermen unloading their daily catches in the harbour no more than 50m away.. or even the main galleries, maritime museums if you can spare the time…
The ride was flat and easy and certainly not testing so the girls jumped onto the bungee and trampolines that adorn this pretty seaside resort… were we glad we visited, absolutely, would we return? Yes certainly, Slovenia seems to have it all…. natural beauty (Postojna Caves), charming cafe culture (Ljubljana) and now this riviera feel! And we haven’t even seen the Soca Valley or Lake Bled/Bohina!
