Create an itinerary including Tartini Square
Sitting close to the water's edge, paved with white marble and surrounded by elegant 19th-century buildings, Tartini Square serves as the largest square in town and a hub of activity. The square was part of the harbor until 1894, when it was filled in and mounted with a statue of violinist and composer Giuseppe Tartini, after whom the square is named. Most of the buildings are older than the square itself; be sure to look for the Gothic house, the only building that has preserved its original exterior. The square's distinctive oval shape comes from the time when it served as an electric railway station; today it's a pedestrianized zone. Relax with a beer, have a bite of pizza or pastry at one of the outdoor cafes, and watch the locals go about their daily lives.

  • Romantic place, worth of visit, perl of Slovenia coast, take your time and explore narrow alleys, a lot of artigan artwork shops, nice souvenirs, small coffee shops, Restaurants have a great Mediterranean choice of food, fishes right from the sea to the table. Delicious. You feel the history. Kind people. Giuseppe Tartini, great 🎻 home town. The city Square is fantastic.
  • Piran is my favourite coastal town in Slovenia. I love its narrow streets! There are a lot of small cafes and restaurants with delicious food!
  • Walked about 40 mins from Portoroz, which was a great way to enjoy the sea shore. Piran is small and cute but quite touristic (at least in August). However, taking the walk and having a fish dinner at the restaurant "Piran" are recommended
  • This is definitely the best place in Piran. You will end up here almost no matter what you do around. This square is charming and full of life. With many bars around, a nice view and also a view of the sea from the other side, is one place you have to visit and stay a while to enjoy. Sit around the square and watch people pass by, it's very entertaining too.
  • A lively square, the landmark of marvelous coastal town of Piran. A great place for your wedding ceremony 🤗
