Slovenian Seaside in 1 day tour description
Begin by visiting Socerb castle, offering breathtaking views of the Slovenian coast and the Bay of Trieste.
Continue through the small villages of the Slovenian Istria to Soline Regional park. Former salt fields have been transformed into one of the most important heritage sites in Slovenia, as the salt-rich soil of this wetlands provides ideal living conditions for a variety of plants and animals, including the world’s smallest mammal, the Etruscan shrew.
Continue to Portorož, Slovenia’s hippest resort with a typical Mediterranean riviera, and to Piran, the most beautiful town on the Slovenian coast, lying on a narrow peninsula.
After a lunch stop we continue our tour to Koper, historically the most important place on the Slovenian coast with an amazing Venetian town centre. Koper is also an important port and a popular stop for cruise ships, which makes it an ideal base for cruise ship shore excursions.
