Piran — 4 nights

Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Venture out of the city with trips to Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan), Postojna (Guštarna, Postojna Cave, &more) and Hrastovlje Church of the Holy Trinity (in Hrastovlje). There's still lots to do: experience rural life at Fonda Fish Farm, learn more about the world around you at Magical World of Shells Museum, indulge in some personalized pampering at Fish Spa Piran, and take in the waterfront at Port Piran.

To see reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Piran trip planner.

Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Bled in October: high temperatures in Piran hover around 22°C and lows are around 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) to allow time to drive back home.
