Behold the coastal beauty of Slovenia, stopping in medieval Piran and then Padna, where you may sample the local delicacies.

Depart from the pier and drive south following Slovenia's precious Adriatic coastline, a strip of land only 27 miles long, wedged between Italy and Croatia. What the coastline lacks in length, it makes up for in beauty. It's particularly picturesque around Izola, where you will stop for photos of this traditional fishing village.

Upon reaching Piran, a spectacularly scenic village on the tip of a thin peninsula, you will enjoy free time to wander its narrow, atmospheric streets. Much of the architecture is 15th-century Venetian Gothic, lending the village a wonderfully medieval feel. A statue of Guissepe Tartini stands in the marbled main square, a tribute to the 18th-century Piran-born violinist and composer. Elsewhere you will see historical churches, inviting cafés and the picture-perfect port.

Continuing on, you will pass Portoroz, a lovely coastal village whose fortunes were once linked to the vast saltpans nearby. While no longer valued commercially, the saltpans provide a fine habitat for birds and other wildlife. Not far inland, you will visit the traditional village of Padna, which is surrounded by olive groves and farms. Using complimentary vouchers, you may meander through the markets and shops, sampling a variety of locally produced foods. Be sure to try the homemade breads, cheeses, wine and chard, a leafy vegetable so esteemed in Padna that there's a festival devoted to it. Afterwards, you will rejoin your coach and return to the pier.

Please note: This tour is primarily panoramic in nature with walking at the guests' discretion during the stops. While there is a guided walking tour in Piran, guests may wait for the group in Tartini Square. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Weather appropriate clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
