Short Easter getaway: Portorož

The last three days were great, packed with sun, good food and drinks. Easter weekend is perfect for a short getaway. This year was time for a place change. Portorož is a way much better alternative to Lignano and both are in a short distance.

Portorož is a small Adriatic-mediterranean coastal place in southwest Slovenia and a good choice for a weekend escape.The sea and the beach are beautiful and clean. The bay is surrounded by beach bars, excellent fish restaurants and good cocktail bars.

We stayed in the historic heart of Portorož  the Kempinski Palace. The five star deluxe hotel was announced to be the best spot at the Adriatic coast. To be honest the hotel was ok but next time or especially during summertime I would choose one of the cheaper places nearby.

The weather was great all three days long. We relaxed by the pool, actually we were sun bathing, walked on the beach and ate sooooo much delicious ice cream. My plan to eat very healthy was destroyed by this awesome gelateria, called Cacao.

Portorož is connected to Piran by a promenade along the beach. The magnificent medieval Venetian town is just around the corner in a distance of 3 km. Piran has a nice historic city center and offers a good range of charming medieval streets and alleys, bars and restaurants.

So now I am back in Salzburg and I am so happy that the snow and the bad weather are gone. Can't wait for summer.
