What You Can Expect
Continue toward the fishing town of Izola, where you'll enjoy a brief sightseeing tour. Afterward, travel to the Istrian town of Piran and learn about its medieval architecture as you stroll through the old town with your guide.
Relax with some free time for lunch (own expense). Choose one of the area's traditional restaurants and sample local favorites, such as the cuttlefish risotto. Then opt for a refreshing dip in the Adriatic or spread out on the beach.
Head to the popular coastal resort of Portorož next, and top off the day with a visit to the Sečovlje Salina Natural Park (own expense) to see the salt flats. Then admire the Slovenian coastline on a relaxing ride back to your original departure point.
We had a wonderful time on this tour and highly recommend it. Piran is very picturesque and there are plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from for lunch during your free time. Our guide Vladamir was excellent, very chatty and knowledgable. The walking tour was optional but i'm glad we chose to do it as he took us down backstreets and showed us sights we most likely would not have seen if we had gone off on our own straight away. The salt fields were also really interesting and all in all it was a great day out!

The coast is beautiful. Both towns are very small and there isn't very much to do...besides enjoy your surroundings. We went to the salt mines beforehand, which was interesting but seemed out of place on the tour. Our guide was nice but very difficult to understand...I only caught about 50 of what he was saying. Some people went swimming, the water is clear and pretty. Definitely a very relaxing day.
Very nice place
