Piran Getting There, Slovenia

By car. From Italy, take highway A4 towards Trieste and cross the former Slovenian border through Ferretti oder Rabuiese pass. 20 km later, having passed Koper and Izola, follow the signs for Portoroz and Piran.

From northern Europe, enter Slovenia and head towards the capital, Ljubljana and take highway A1 heading for Koper for about 100 km. After Koper, follow the signs for Portoroz and then Piran.

If you're coming from Croatia, follow the signs for Rijeka and continue toward Koper, Portoroz and Piran. Alternatively, take the scenic route: once in Rijeka, turn towards Opatija and drive up the coast past Pula, Rovinj and Porec until you reach Piran. This route is best in the spring when there's less traffic than in the summer.

By train. From Italy, arrive at the Trieste station and take the buses that cross the former border to Piran in about 50 minutes. From Slovenia, arrive at the Ljubljana station and continue by train to Koper where local buses depart for Piran and Portoroz.

By bus. Buses leave daily from Italy (Trieste), from Slovenia (Ljubljana) and Croatian Istria (Pula, Porec, Rovinj) to Piran.

By hovercraft. Hovercrafts daily depart Venice (Italy) and Croatian coastal towns for Piran.

Piran is a pedestrian town. We suggest you leave your car in the parking lots just outside the town and walk along the port towards Tartini Square or take one of the convenient shuttle buses leaving the parking lots every 15 minutes. If you need to drop off your bags, you can drive to Tartini Square and, if lucky, park at one of the metered spots. Rates are pretty cheap and parking is free for less than 15 minutes. Do not park your car in spots reserved for residents or you'll find your tire clamped and have to pay a heavy fine to have it removed.
