From Ljubljana: Lipica and the Coastal City of Piran

2. From Ljubljana: Lipica and the Coastal City of Piran

Passing through a varied landscape, reach the sparkling Mediterranean. The gem of the Slovenian coast is the medieval Piran, tucked in between the sea and the mighty town walls. The central square boasts eminent historical palaces, the birth house of the maestro Tartini, his monument, and his name. You will walk up to the imposing Church of St. George with its Venetian-like bell tower to admire the view over the wonderful mosaic of roofs, streets, and squares with the stunning backdrop of the bay.

A local guide will show you around the estate; you will see the whole array of magnificent animals – uncertain dark foals, gentle mares, and proud stallions capable of performing the most amazing figures of the Spanish Riding School.
