Piran — 4 nights

Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity and Marija Snežne Church. Do some cultural sightseeing at Lepa Vida Boutique Winery and Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Piran: Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan), Jewish Cemetery (in Nova Gorica) and Vina Povh (in Vipava). There's still lots to do: experience rural life at Fonda Fish Farm, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Bernardine, get curious at Magical World of Shells Museum, and let little ones run wild at Lisjak - Premium extra virgin olive oil from Slovenian Istria.
