Škocjan Caves | Socerb/San Servolo Castle | Piran | Ljubljana

Travel to the heart of the Karst region and explore the Škocjan UNESCO caves, an underground marvel. Visit the most charming town on the Slovenian coast.

Begin your small-group tour by meeting at a central pick-up point in Ljubljana. From there, you will travel in an air-conditioned minivan to explore the Škocjan UNESCO caves and the charming coastal town of Piran. During the approximately 1-hour journey, you will enjoy the beautiful rural scenery of Slovenia while your guide shares interesting stories about the Škocjan UNESCO caves.


Once you arrive, take a 2-hour guided tour of the Škocjan Caves. This World Heritage Site features a majestic underground river gorge filled with colorful stalactites and stalagmites of various shapes, including curtains and limestone pools. As you walk through the cave, you will be fascinated by the numerous waterfalls and underground halls surrounding you.


What sets the Škocjan Caves apart from other caves is the extraordinary volume of the underground canyon, making it one of the world's most famous underground sights. Next, visit Socerb Castle, which offers breathtaking views of the Slovenian coast and Gulf of Trieste. The castle ruin is situated high above the coastline at the edge of the Karst Plateau and has dominated the cliff since Illyrian times. The tour will then continue to explore the coast of Slovenia and the charming coastal town of Piran.


You will quickly fall in love with this town as you walk through its narrow medieval streets between beautiful houses, churches, and squares. Don't forget to enjoy the sea breeze and admire the marvelous Venetian architecture. Take your time to enjoy a cup of coffee, gelato, or some good fresh food. After a well-spent day, the tour will end back in Ljubljana at a central meeting point.
