Considered one of the prettiest cities on the country's coast, Piran owes much of its development to salt.
On the 9th (Mon), kick back and relax at Portoroz Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Anne's Friary, then explore the fascinating underground world of Škocjan Caves, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of St. Bernardine, and finally get curious at Magical World of Shells Museum. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: examine the collection at Mediadom Pyrhani, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. George's Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Strunjan Nature Reserve, then take some stellar pictures from Strunjan Cliff, and finally learn about winemaking at Boris Lisjak Winery.

For maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Piran driving holiday planner.

Valletta, Malta to Piran is an approximately 10.5- hour combination of flight and car. Traveling from Valletta in December, things will get little chillier in Piran: highs are around 12°C and lows about 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Tue) so you can drive to Ljubljana.

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Visiting Postojna Cave and Vintgar Gorge will get you outdoors. Get some historical perspective at Bled Castle and Predjama Castle. Step out of Ljubljana with an excursion to Bled Island in Bled--about 50 minutes away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Ljubljana Old Town, meet the residents at ZOO Ljubljana, have fun and explore at Museum of Puppetry, and find something for the whole family at Minicity Ljubljana.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Ljubljana online driving holiday planner.
