Resort hotels in Portorož

Portorož/Portorose is an Adriatic coastal town in the Municipality of Piran/Pirano in south-western Slovenia. Its modern development began in the late 19th century with appearance of first health resorts. In the early 20th century it became one of the grandest seaside resorts in Central Europe, along with Opatija/Abbazia, Lido and Grado, then as part of the Austrian Littoral. Part of Italy from 1918 and 1947, it is now one of the country's major tourist areas. Located in the centre is the Hotel Palace, once one of the most important resorts for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and currently one of the finest hotels between Venice and Dubrovnik.

Get in[edit]

Portorož has a small international airport [2], but it is used only by charter flights and general aviation. Trieste (Trst) in Italy is about 30 minutes away, while the distance to the Slovenian capital Ljubljana is about 1-1.5 hours.

All buses to or from Piran stop in Portorož along the way.

Get around[edit]

City bus is connecting Portorož with Piran, Bernardin and Lucija every 15 minutes.
