Portorož

— 4 nights
A resort town on the country's scenic Adriatic coastline, Portoroz offers many spas with all kinds of therapeutic treatments, many based on the brine and mud from the area's salt pans.
You'll get in some beach time at Strunjan Nature Reserve and Svetilnik Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Fonda Fish Farm and Museo Militare Di Pivka. When in Portorož, make a side trip to see Pivka Park of Military History in Pivka, approximately Pivka away. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Sergej Mašera Maritime Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Francis of Assisi, get a sense of history and politics at Town Hall, and admire the local landmark of Da Ponte Fountain.
