Izola is a picturesque Mediterranean town stretching on the coast between Piran and Izola. It is an important city of Slovenian Istria with a well-developed craft and economic activity. The favorable Mediterranean climate and enviable location enabled Izola to develop tourism in the second half of the 19th century.
The city experienced a real boom after 1960, when the Belvedere tourist resort and Simon's Bay were built. Since then, tourism has been an important factor influencing the pulse and image of present Izola. The hotel settlement of Simon's Bay is spread in the shelter of a variety of Mediterranean greenery, where in the Roman period the Halietum settlement was. The resort offers guests comfortable accommodations at the hotel and summer cottages, and offers many recreational and sports facilities ranging from swimming pools to tennis courts and miniature golf. The hotel beach is located in a natural bay and is partly sandy and therefore suitable for families with young children. For the youngest is the Mini Izola club where they can enjoy a slide or play on the sand. Guests can stroll along the many walking trails, some run right by the sea and others in the pleasant shade of greenery. Near Simon Bay is the picturesque old town of Izola, which has preserved the medieval design of the Mediterranean city with a church on a hill, intertwined narrow streets, tall houses and an inland harbor protected by the waves.
The most important landmarks are the Municipal Palace, which was built in 1325, a prayer house, a cultural home, Saint Catherine's Church, Besenghi Palace, Manzioli House, Lovisato House, Saint Mary Alietska Church and more.
