The road leads mostly on asphalt and macadam roads, along the Soča river, through Brda wine region into the Karst area. Passing many charming stone villages, on the way, make sure to taste "pršut" and "Teran".  Than you will ride through Slovenian Istria , right along the border with Italy, and ending the trip in Piran. You can prolongue it all the way to Portorož, to see the whole coastline of Slovenia while at it. 

Author’s recommendation

You can complete the route with a trek or E-bike, even gravel bike would work
