Small group approach with carefully planned time, where experienced local tour operator’s chauffeur guide will collect you at designated location for an informative hourly ride to Mediterranean coast of Adriatic Sea.
We’ll drive through the »green belt« of Slovenian coast, passing Strunjan, a natural habitat of the typical flora and fauna of this region, since 90’s protected as nature reserve. From tops you will have excellent views over greenery and grid of pools used at former Secovlje salt pans.
This petite Venetian port can hold its own against anyone, including the imperial capital just over the horizon that was responsible for much of its fortune. In fact Piran does have the same kind of open-air museum feel to it as Venice, but only on much smaller scale.
In Piran, you will feel as though you have stepped right into a picture postcard. You will be charmed during our walks through narrow winding streets of Piran! At the main square, you will be greeted by the statue of the most famous son of Piran, Giuseppe Tartini, composer and virtuoso violinist; reaching atop to the dramatically situated Cathedral of St. George, patron of the city. Back on the pier, you might catch fishermen unraveling a fishing nets and counting daily catch. Get to know more about salt – white gold of Piran!

But it reached it’s »golden age« in August 1910 when majestic Hotel Palace opened its doors. It was a charming pearl of the era. In 1913 Portorož hosted almost 7,000 guests and it started to become internationally renowned.

Really good trip to Pirin with very informative guide called Milan. Super day rounding off with gelato on the beach. Took his time and care with our differing agility and would definitely recommend this tour from Ljubljana to see the coast and salt flats. Countryside is spectacular and driving climb is reminiscent of Amalfi. Thanks we will be back, great people very genuine.
Simply stunning, what a difference in weather from Ljubljana. Not much in Portoroz except for good Ice cream
