Portopiccolo is more than a seaside retreat. This is a living, breathing community, alive with things to do and boasting a rich calendar of cultural and artistic events. There’s something here to suit every taste and disposition, from sporty to sedate, cultural to calming.
With a prime location on the North Adriatic coast, it’s no surprise that much of Portopiccolo’s activities centre around its calm blue waters. The biggest event of the year is the Barcolana Regatta, the world’s largest sailing race and a thrilling spectacle. And you don’t have to remain a spectator: Portopiccolo’s Marina & Yacht Club offer ample opportunities to brush up on your sailing skills, gain sailing and motorboat licences and hire other watersports equipment.
Back on shore, the SPA by Bakel offers indulgent treatments for the body and soul. It’s one of the largest spas anywhere in Europe, and with its unbroken panoramas of the Gulf of Trieste, one of the most beautiful too. After treating yourself to rejuvenating health and wellness treatments, head outdoors to while away an afternoon exploring Portopiccolo’s extensive range of boutiques and ateliers. With a selection of fine fashion, design, art and more to peruse, there’s something here for everyone.
There’s more too: a curated selection of restaurants, cafés and bars, each offering gourmet fare created with trademark Italian flair and passion. And a vibrant schedule of events that spans culture, art, sport and beyond. Whatever your passion, you’ll find it at Portopiccolo.
Portopiccolo’s cultural scene includes a thriving artistic community, inspired by a cultural initiative that was launched in 2015 with the ambition of promoting and conveying art in all its forms.Find out more
