The most popular resort in Slovenia, Bled is marked by its iconic church steeple and medieval castle on glacial Lake Bled.

Step out of Bled with an excursion to Wild Lake in Idrija--about 1h 10 min away. There's lots more to do: take some stellar pictures from Ojstrica, take in the dramatic scenery at Iglica Waterfall, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mežakla Plateau, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

Piran

— 8 nights
Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.

Change things up with these side-trips from Piran: Solkan (Sveta Gora (Holy Mountain) & Solkan Bridge), Lepa Vida Boutique Winery (in Šempas) and Kojsko (Sabotin - Peace Park & Šmartno). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Piran Minorite Monastery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity, kick back and relax at Strunjan Nature Reserve, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
