Piran

— 5 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: Lipica Stud Farm (in Lipica) and Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Tartini Square, see the interesting displays at Sergej Mašera Maritime Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of St. Maurus, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
