Yacht details

Rout:

Muggia (Italy) – Venice- Caorle- Grado-  Piran(Slovenia) – Miramare- Muggia.

Our yacht awaits guests at the marina Porto San Rocco in the Italian city of Muggia, on the border with Slovenia. After we discuss the route, we wish the team safety on board. The first stop on our routes is the Slovenian city of Piran, one of the most beautiful not only in Slovenia, but also in the entire Adriatic. Next we will make a day trip to Venice, where we will stop in a comfortable marina within walking distance from St. Mark’s Square. So that we have a whole day, so much for the most romantic city in the world. Those who are in Venice for the first time, of course, need to visit the Piazza San Marco, climb the famous bell tower, visit the Palazzo Ducale, ride along the grand canal, admiring the bridges and the palazzo. More sophisticated travelers are advised to go to other islands of the lagoon – Murano, San Giorgio, Judedecca, Burano, etc. Even after the beauties of Venice, we go to the fabulous architecture of the cities. In our beautiful route, we will visit the romantic Miramare Castle and walk through its beautiful park.
