Travel to Slovenia
Fly to Venice Treviso airport in the afternoon, where you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel in Ljubljana, Slovenia’s bustling capital.
Walking Tour of Ljubljana
This morning, enjoy a guided walking tour of the city’s highlights, including Ljubljana Castle and the leafy banks of the Ljubljanica River.
Spend the afternoon at leisure in Ljubljana. Your local guide will be happy to offer suggestions of activities to suit your interests.
After breakfast, embark on a morning guided excursion to the Postojna Caves to admire the network of tunnels, halls and karst features. Here you will see the unique cave railway, the blackened entrance which was damaged by fire during World War II, and the impressive Congress Hall, which is now used as a concert venue.
In the afternoon, continue to the picturesque town of Piran located in Slovenia’s Adriatic coast for a guided walking tour of the old town followed by free time for lunch (at your own expense). Afterwards, continue to the coastal town of Koper for a visit to a local wine cellar with wine tasting included.
Today, depart your hotel for a guided excursion to Lake Bohinj, the largest lake in Slovenia. Less well known, but just as beautiful as Bled, Lake Bohinj is a popular spot for fishing, swimming and hill walking. Take a cable car trip up to Mount Vogel to marvel at the striking views before enjoying a panoramic drive around the lake.
Continue your journey to Lake Bled for a guided tour including a boat trip to Bled Island, which lies in the centre of the lake’s glacial blue waters. The small island is home to a church, small museum and the historic South Staircase, a set of 99 steps built in 1655. Later, visit the medieval Bled Castle which overlooks the lake from its imposing clifftop perch.
The final day of your holiday will be free to spend as you wish. Relax in your hotel, or visit Ljubljana city centre to pick up some souvenirs or local Slovenian treats to take home.
After a morning at leisure, check out of your hotel and depart for Venice Treviso airport for your flight home.
