  • Is Piran worth a day trip from Ljubljana.

    by beejay421 Online Now Mar 26, 2011 at 4:58 PM

    We will be in Slovenia in early September staying about a week or so before traveling to the Istrian Peninsula of Croatia for another week or more. Would it be worth going to Piran and is it a convenient day trip from Ljubljana?

    As I intend to travel on Saturday 6 November, does anyone know if the SAF service runs on SATURDAYS? Does Feriali/Radni Dan/Week Days include Saturday?

    Camping near Piran

    by thesubtleknife Online Now Jan 19, 2009 at 7:34 AM

    Hello there

    I wonder if anyone has any experience of (tent) camping near to Piran? I've read that the campsite in Piran itself, Jezero Fiesa, can be a bit noisy. Ideally I'd like somewhere a bit more peaceful.

    The nearest campsites to Piran that I can find online are:

    Camping Belvedere - Dobrava
    Autocamping Jadranka - Izola
    Camping Strunjan - Portoroz
    Kamp Lucija - Portoroz

    Does anyone know what any of these are like? Or have any other suggestions?

    Many thanks,

  • Hostel accommodation in Piran

    by Bronterose Online Now Aug 17, 2008 at 8:14 PM

    Can anyone recommend a hostel in Piran that they have stayed at recently? The few reviews that I've read on some websites are either a little outdated or scary with no hostels particularly being recommended. My adult daughter and I would like to spend 2 nights in a hostel there and all we ask is that it be clean and not out there as far as partying goes.

    Day trips from Piran?

    by risamay Online Now Apr 7, 2008 at 11:21 AM

    Can anyone recommend easy (via boat, bus, or train) day trips from Piran to elsewhere in Slovenia or neighboring Croatia? I'm thinking of spending a night or two in Piran or, perhaps, more if there are good day trips to be had from Piran as a home base. The loose idea is to ferry to Piran from Venice (via Kompas' Prince of Venice cruises) and then bus-train back to Venice via Trieste or ferry back the way we came. Ferries only run once a week in April, so that's why I'm researching day trips; trying to figure out if we should stay for a week in Piran and explore from there or just stay a couple nights and then bus-train it back to Venice.

    For example, how easy would it be to bus from Piran for the day to Rovinj? I'm very interested in seeing nearby towns that were also part of the former Venetian Republic. Any towns you can recommend that are easy to get to via Piran by boat or bus (or train?) would be great.

    Thanks in advance for your help!
