Things to eat in Ljubljana

Every Friday (if the weather allows), local restaurants cook in front of the Cathedral with music and drinks. Here are a few things you absolutely have to try: … More Things to eat in Ljubljana

Piran is a small town on the tiny stretch of Slovenian coast. Wedged between Italy and Croatia, the Slovenian Adriatic coast in only 42 km long. Piran is a lovely, well-preserved town. It belonged to the Venitian empire at one point which can clearly be seen in the architecture. This is not the kind of place where you spend a week, but it’s perfect for a relaxing 2-3 day trip. It’s charming, the seafood is incredibly fresh and it’s only a short drive from Trieste, Umag or Ljubljana. So while you are here, this is what you should do: … More Things to do in Piran

Things to do in Genova

Tourism in Genova only really took off about 5 years ago, and it is still an underrated destination. There are hardly any “tourist traps” in Genova.

People from all walks of life live side by side. Here is what you have to see and do to experience all the best things of Genova: … More Things to do in Genova
