City
“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. The central town square was named after the town's most famous resident, Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770), the violinist who ran a music school in Piran, which was famous throughout Europe.”
