On this day trip you will be able to see Lipica Stud Farm, the cradle of the Lipizzaners. Then, drive to Slovenia's coast, which will charm you with its inviting towns, rich history and clear sea. On your day at the seaside you will visit the pretty fishing town of Izola, discover the beauties of the medieval town of Piran and the sunny Portorož. As an option you will be able to visit the salt pans of Sečovlje.
Meet your guide at your hotel in Ljubljana before visiting Lipica and the Slovenian coast. Your first stop will be at Lipica, the cradle of the Lipizzaners. There you will have an option to see Lipica stud farm (own expense). Your trip will continue to a pretty fishing town of Izola, with a short sightseeing tour, before your next stop at Piran. Stroll with your guide through the narrow streets of the old town and learn about its medieval-influenced architecture.
Take a break from the guided tour for lunch (own expense) and taste one of many traditional fish dishes, like the cuttlefish risotto. Next, spend some time relaxing next to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic or pop in for a calming swim.
A contrast to the historic city of Piran is Portorož, one of the most popular Slovene coastal resorts. To make the day complete you will have an opportunity to see the Sečovlje Salina Natural Park (own expense). On a way back to the starting point, you will have time to admire the small but very beautiful Slovenian coast and Slovenian see.

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!
