Explore Piran's ancient town walls, whose construction began in the 7th century. Enjoy incredible views of the Gulf of Trieste and the Italian Alps.

From Tartini Square walk east on Ulica IX Korpusa. The short 1/4 mile trek is mostly uphill. Enter the town walls at the turnstile entrance on your left. The entrance fee, paid directly into the turnstile, is 2 Euros.

The town is constantly battling to keep the walls standing and the stairs safe, so not all areas are open for exploring. Expect steep staircases, short ceilings, and narrow balconies.

You can spend hours admiring the stonework, balistraria (arrow slit windows), and views of Piran and the Adriatic Sea. 

Be sure to walk to the end of the wall for an epic view of the Italian coast and Italian Alps.

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
