Piran

— 4 nights
Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Magical World of Shells Museum and Sergej Mašera Maritime Museum. There's much more to do: ponder the world of politics at Town Hall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Francis of Assisi, relax and rejuvenate at Fish Spa Piran, and stroll through Svetilnik Beach.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, read Piran sightseeing planner.

Ljubljana to Piran is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of train and bus. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Ljubljana in December, with highs in Piran at 12°C and lows at 3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to drive to Nova Gorica.
