Piran is an extremely picturesque small Italianate city on the Adriatic coast of Slovenia. It is one of Slovenia's four coastal cities, including Izola, Koper, and Portoroz. It's Italian styling is due to its proximity to the Italian border and once belonged to Italy. The boat harbor is full of small colorful fishing boats. The main square is near the sea and full of activity. The streets are typical narrow winding medieval streets that are a joy to explore and find hidden squares inside the various neighborhoods. The Church on the hill is complete with a separate bell tower and baptistry. There is a walkway connecting the churchyard to a beach along the shore. The small peninsula of the city hosts a beautiful pedestrian street of various restaurants with delicious seafood and a gorgeous view of the sunset over the adjacent peninsula (in Croatia). The lighthouse at the tip of the peninsula is unique. Piran offers great views of the small Slovene coastline, including views of nearby Trieste, large shipping vessels, and rolling hills. Hidden treasures include an old aquarium, steep winding streets, and local people fishing from the shore.
