The old Mediterranean town of Izola lies on the south-west shore of the Gulf of Trieste, where the genuine traditions of fishing and winemaking, mysterious traces of the past, and the welcoming character of the locals merge together to form an unforgettable mosaic of experiences. The town's warm-spirited and romantic character help attract visitors and it is said that once you have visited Izola you will never forget it.
