    An ancient Mediterranean town, Koper lies on the northern coast of the Istrian peninsula, where the Adriatic Sea carves most deeply into the heart of Central Europe. Koper's rich Venetian Renaissance tradition is very well preserved and its many beautiful squares and burgher buildings bear witness to its long history as an important city of the 1000-year republic. As the capital town of Istria, in Italian, Koper is called Capodistira and translates as the head of Istria. The town's prosperity has long been founded on maritime trade and today, this pulse is supported by the port of Koper which was founded 50 years ago and has allowed for Koper to become an important maritime gateway for Slovenia and other central and eastern European countries.

    This lovely city that faces the sea, enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and warm and dry summers. Visitors and residents alike are treated to pleasant seaside vistas while being embraced by soft breezes. On days when the sirocco wind blows, the sky can turn an amazing color of scarlet, only serving to add to the allure of this destination.

    Joining your local guide at the pier, your walking tour begins by climbing the 100 stairs that lead to the upper level of the town. Your approximately 90-minute stroll through the picturesque town center includes visits to the museum, Pretorian Palace and the Cathedral of St. Mary's Assumption.

    Before heading back to the pier, a stop will be made at Carpaccio Square for a glass of local Slovenian wine and light cheese snack. Those who wish, may stay behind in the city and make their own way back to the ship.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of moderate walking - at times on uneven ground. There are also a considerable number of steps (approximately 160) to be negotiated and it is not considered suitable for guests who utilize a wheelchair or those with mobility concerns. Casual lightweight clothing, a hat and comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
