Sailing Holidays in Muggia
Muggia lies on the S side of the Gulf of Trieste, barely a mile SW of the main commercial harbour of Trieste and half a mile E of the large harbour of Porto San Rocco, the last suitable port of call in Italy before the border with Slovenia. It is part of the only narrow strip of Istria that is still Italian territory following the extensive redrawing of national borders at the end of World War II. For a yacht cruising south, Muggia offers a first taste of the picturesque delights of the Venetian coastal towns along the coasts of Slovenia and Croatia. Its small harbour provides berthing for up to 300 smaller yachts of up to 12 metres. Larger yachts can berth at the nearby harbour of Porto San Rocco half a mile W and visit the town on foot.
