Full description
Start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart to explore the Škocjan UNESCO caves and the charming coastal town of Piran, in an air-conditioned minivan. During your roughly 1-hour journey, admire rural Slovenia and enjoy interesting stories about Škocjan UNESCO caves that your guide describes. Take a 2-hour guided tour of the caves and explore multi-colored stalactites and stalagmites. The exceptional volume of the underground canyon is what distinguishes the Škocjan Caves from other caves and places and is easily placed among the most famous underground features in the world.

The visit continues to Socerb Castle that offers breathtaking views of the Slovenian coast and Gulf of Trieste. The castle ruin is placed high up above the coastline at the very edge of the Karst Plateau and has been dominating that cliff since the Illyrian times.

Continue to explore the coast of Slovenia and the most charming coastal town of Piran. You will soon realize that Piran is a town that is almost impossible not to fall in love with on your first visit. Walk through its narrow medieval streets wedged between beautiful houses, churches and squares, and enjoy the breeze that blows from the sea. Your guide will tell you about the historical part of the town and show you the marvelous Venetian architecture. Take your time to enjoy a cup of coffee, gelato, or some good fresh food. After a well spent day, you will end the tour in Ljubljana, with a drop-off at your hotel.
