Koper, Piran and Portorož - day trip for groups

 

Sečovlje salt fields (soline)

Salt has been acquired at the Sečovlje salt fields for over a millennium. The entire area spreads over more than 600 hectares and most of it is a landscape park, protecting both natural and cultural heritage of the area. A visit of the Sečovlje salt fields is an essential part of any day trips to the Slovene coast, as you can learn about the traditional salt production and the balance that was established here between man and nature. In the summer time, when the salt works are in full swing, the fields are bustling and alive, and in any other season it is a peaceful place with beautiful scenery that has served as an inspiration to many renowned artists.

 

Piran

Piran is a tourist highlight of the Slovenian coast, strongly influenced by the old Venetian Republic. Walk through its narrow medieval streets wedged between beautiful houses, churches and squares and enjoy the breeze that blows from the sea.

The main square is named after Giuseppe Tartini, a famous violinist and a composer who was born in Piran. On the hill above the square you can see the signature Church of Saint George, who is also the patron saint of the town. The small town is still partially surrounded by a typically Venetian wall which used to serve as protection of this marine and salt trade hub in the Bay of Piran.

 

Koper

Koper is today the most important place on the Slovenian coast with an amazing Venetian town centre. Koper is also an important port and a popular stop for cruise ships, which makes it an ideal base for cruise ship shore excursions.
