Piran — 3 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 Lipica Stud Farm (in Lipica) and Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Tartini Square, stroll through Portorož Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. George's Church, and take in the waterfront at Port Piran.

Planning Piran trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

Newark, USA to Piran is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Newark to Piran. In May, daily temperatures in Piran can reach 71°F, while at night they dip to 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) so you can go by car to Nova Gorica.
