We may have only 46.6 km of coastline, but in Slovenia it’s quality, not quantity that counts. Squeezed between Italy and Croatia, the Slovenian coast is full of colorful Italian-style fishing villages, olive groves and clean, clear water. It’s perfect destination for holidays for disabled and an idyllic place where you can enjoy a slice of Mediterranean sunshine.
Pick up from Ljubljana airport and a short drive to the Slovenian capital city Ljubljana. After arrival, we will take some time for lunch and then start a guided tour of the city which in 2015 was given the Bronze Access City Award and a 2018 Silver Access City Award. We shall take a look around the city center that was highly denoted by the Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik and then take the funicular ride to Ljubljana castle. After seeing all the important parts of the city center and after having a compulsory coffee (Slovenians just love coffee drinking, in fact we drink much more of it than our neighbors, the Italians) we will drive to the hotel by the seaside. You will be based in a hotel in Portorož, Strunjan or Izola, just a few steps away from the warm Adriatic Sea.
We will have a guided tour of Piran in the morning. The town of Piran is one of the best preserved medieval towns on the Adriatic coast with its beautiful setting on a peninsula, narrow cobbled lanes and a church and fortress high above the town. We will have the afternoon off for swimming and enjoying the Mediterranean climate.
A half-day trip to the Škocjan caves. The Škocjan Caves, the only natural beauty in Slovenia that is listed on the UNESCO world heritage list. As the cave is protected it’s unfortunately not possible to visit it in a wheelchair. Instead of that we can take part in a virtual 4-D tour of the cave, which is not far away from the real pathway (believe us, we were scared of the high walls and deep falls a couple of times…). In the afternoon, you will already be back in the warm waters of the Adriatic Sea.
Transfer to Ljubljana airport and departure.
