Valeta Tunnel

Parenzana – The path of friendship and good health follows the old, 123km long, narrow gauge train track, which connected Trst and Poreč and the inland cities of the Istrian peninsula. The path offers many sports activities and brings together people who enjoy walking, running or cycling. The path takes you through cities and villages, sometimes following the coastline right by the sea, other times leading you through vineyards and olive tree plantations, short and well-maintained tunnels and into valleys and hills. All the tunnels are still well-preserved, the most famous one among them being the Valeta Tunnel, a 550m long tunnel that connects Strunjan and Portorož.
