Piran

— 3 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: Socerb Castle (in Črni Kal), Škocjan Caves (in Škocjan) and Postojna (Postojna Cave & Predjama Castle). Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to Tartini Square, tour the pleasant surroundings at Portorož Beach, admire the striking features of Praetorian Palace, and pause for some serene contemplation at Koper Cathedral and Bell Tower.

For reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Piran road trip planner.
