Trip Summary

  • Trieste

    Trieste, Italy is a city at the crossroads. This important port town has passed through the hands of the Romans, the Venetians, the powerful Hapsburg monarchy (who poured money into it), and the Germans during WWII. In fact, it was only returned to Italy in 1954. Between land and sea, war and peace, it has developed a unique and vibrant culture that sits somewhere between Austrian, Italian, and Slovenian. Visit and explore the Castello Miramare, La Risiera di San Sabba, Piazza Unità d`Italia, Trieste Cathedral, Il Ghetto and The Synagogue of Trieste, Joyce and Svevo Museum, Canal Grande, La Grotta Gigante and so much more.

  • Slovenian Riviera

    The Slovenian Riviera (Slovenska obala) is a popular seaside tourist destination, and has been since the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when it was then referred to as the "Austrian Riviera". It consists of a mere 29 miles of coastline on the Gulf of Trieste, sandwiched between Italy and Croatia. The towns on the Slovenian Riviera, such as Koper, Piran, Portoroz, Strunjan, Izola, and Ankaran, all have considerable Italian influence, as the area was ruled by Italy for three decades in the 20th century. Perhaps the most popular beach in the country is Portoroz Beach, one of the few sandy ones along the coast. Whether you're looking for sun and sand, sightseeing, or yachting, the towns of the Slovenian Riviera have everything you're looking for, and many points of interest you never realized you needed to see. Visit and explore Portorož, Strunjan, Izola, Ankaran, Portorož Beach, Dragonja River, Praetorian Palace, Tartini Square, Strunjan Nature Reserve, and so much more.

  • North Istria Coast

    The northern Croatian Istrian coast comprises part of the middle portion of the Istrian Peninsula, which is less than an hour away by car not just from Pula, Croatian Istria's largest city, but also from Portoroz and the Slovenian Riviera. The seaside cities, towns, and resorts are comprised of a beautiful mix of buildings, ranging from stone villas to Austro-Hungarian-era grand palaces to state-of-the-art five-star resort complexes. The Italian influence on Istria can be seen and felt everywhere, from bilingual street signs to sumptuous wines and food cooked with fresh truffles. The major cities of the northern coast, from north to south, are Umag, Novigrad, Porec, and Rovinj. Other towns and villages of note in the region include Basanija, Zambratija, Katoro, Monterol, Mareda, Tar, Vabriga, Mali Maj, Funtana, and Vrsar.
