“One of the loveliest towns anywhere along the Adriatic coast, picturesque Piran (Pirano in Italian) sits prettily at the tip of a narrow peninsula. Its Old Town – one of the best-preserved historical towns anywhere in the Mediterranean – is a gem of Venetian Gothic architecture, but it can be a mob scene at the height of summer. In quieter times, it’s hard not to fall instantly in love with the atmospheric winding alleyways, the sunsets and the seafood restaurants.” – Lonely Planet
If you are coming from Venice, Trieste or Rovinj there are seasonal ferries. They tend to be a little faster than land travel but they’re also less frequent and more expensive.
Otherwise, if you’re not driving yourself then you’ll need to take the bus. Check out bus schedules HERE from Ljubljana or check the following for more options from other nearby cities.

1-2 days – I thought a half day trip was perfect if you’re just doing the basics but you can also do things like truffle hunting and wine tastings that will take more time.
