From Ljubljana: Lipica Stud Farm and Piran Full-Day Tour

Lipica Stud Farm is the cradle of the Lipizzaners, the noble white horses. Due to Habsburg's exclusive premium taste, the breeding of the horses began 400 years ago. Nowadays they can be seen galloping during training or a spectacle show. Passing through a varied landscape, we reach the sparkling Adriatic and the charming coastal town of Piran, a once Venetian customs port. The romantic narrow streets and pleasant climate make it a perfect spot for romance. No wonder the Venetians used it as a love nest in the 13th century.
