Piran — 7 nights

Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Attractions like Magical World of Shells Museum and Sergej Mašera Maritime Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Strunjan Nature Reserve and Svetilnik Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Stari Trg pri Lozu (Hunting Collection and Dormouse Museum & Snežnik Castle), Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan) and Lipica Stud Farm (in Lipica). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Francis of Assisi, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Piran Minorite Monastery, ponder the world of politics at Town Hall, and kick back and relax at Portorož Beach.
