In Slovenia, comfortable bike paths will lead you through the well-known towns of Koper and Izola to then continue towards Piran and Portoroz, famous towns of the Slovenian Riviera for their thermal centers. If you prefer to shorten the route, you can take the ferry from Trieste to Muggia (ticket not included); The longer variant instead runs inland, through the Val Rosandra. From Muggia, you will continue along the coast accompanied by reflections and the scent of the sea.

Day 3: Piran/Portoroz – Umag/Novigrad (35 or 60 km)
Shortly after departure, you will cycle through the salt pans of Sečovlje, extensive areas from which salt is extracted through natural evaporation. You will then cycle towards the border with Croatia entering Istria, the largest peninsula of the Adriatic Sea. Here the terrain is slightly hilly and the route to Umag is characterized by orchards and vineyards. The old town of Umag is an ancient Roman settlement and is today the renowned home of the "ATP - Croatia Open" tennis tournament, which takes place annually. A pleasant stroll through the medieval town streets awaits you in the evening, ending at the town's tower.

Day 4: Umag/Novigrad City – Poreč (20 or 40 km)
From Umag cycle along the coast to Novigrad-Cittanova. This small seaside town surrounded by fortified walls is at the mouth of the River Quiet (Mirna). You will then continue towards Poreč, a city known for its artistic beauty where it is possible to visit the Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO site rich in mosaics.

Day 5: Poreč (35 km)
Today you can choose between a bike ride in the hinterland or a day of relaxation: the sea or a walk through the streets of Poreč await you, you can also go on a boat trip to visit the island of Brijuni and the Lim Canal. The Brijuni archipelago consists of twelve small islands plus two large ones; the main island, Veli Brijun, was used by the founder of Yugoslavia, Tito, as a summer residence. Today you can discover Veli Brijun Island. The Lim Channel fiord with its sparkling water also worth a boat trip. With a bit of luck, you can even spot dolphins from the boat. Today the Lim Channel is a nature reserve and on its seabed, you can find mussels and oysters.

Day 6: Poreč – Rovinj (55 km)
Having bid farewell to the picturesque port town of Poreč, the route continues to Rovinj, a fishing port whose historic center is located on a promontory and is characterized by a tangle of paved streets between narrow and colorful houses clustered together.
