We walked the Old Town of Koper, the cathedral was lovely with no one inside. There were markets, flea markets and fruit and veggie markets down near the waterfront. A great morning out walking around.

A very nice tower climb--very easy, with wide stairwells and handrails everywhere. Beautiful views from the top, too. A small fee applies (3.50 Euros each).
