    Portoroz Warnings and Dangers

    The "natural" beach of Portoroz is almost useless. Sun seekers must book a chair in a private artificial area by the sea, and swimmers must dive from it. The sea is calm, the temperature in the water is good, but beach, for us, is a different thing. From there we went to Lignano Sabbiadoro - a "real beach" in Italy (I wrote about it, of course!)

    It is a good solution for the next visit - a cruise. You just have to check the Mediterranean lines to choose a program that crosses the Adriatic. I think that for me it will mean a second (at least) visit to most places, but it is a different approach, and Fernanda never seemed so enthusiastic with the idea. Who knows?
