Your shore excursion starts at the pier, alongside your crusie ship and proceeds towards Portoroz, your final destination. Parenzana is an old narrow gauge railway track, nowadays converted into a recreational pathway, connecting all four major towns on the Slovenian coast. Its stretch continues both ways, north towards Italy – Trieste and south to Porec/Parenzo – Croatia. In Slovenia it starts in Ankaran, proceeds to Koper, Izola, Strunjan, Portoroz and Secovlje, where it crosses the border to the Croatian side. Back in the days, Parenzana did connect 33 villages between Trieste and Parenzo. 33 (1902 – 1935) was also the number of years that the train proudly steamed on the narrow gauge railway. It is said that the speed was on average of 25 km/h, quite slow for nowadays. For the orientation, the whole travel from Trieste to Parenzo took seven hours. People did, at some point jump on and off the train to either ‘take’ the fruits from many orchards by the railway or simply go for the toilet. The whole route had 8 tunnels, which are preserved still today. In Slovenia you will cross two tunnels, one between Izola and Strunjan and the second one between Strunjan and Portoroz, called Valeta. We will take you back to your starting point with an organized return transfer.
