Day 1 – Arrival In Ljubljana

You take your flight to Ljubljana, or Zagreb in neighbouring Croatia where you will be met and transferred to the hotel.

Day 2 – Ljubljana

Ljubljana is a capital city that represents Slovenia beautifully, wearing its green credentials with pride. As far from a concrete jungle as a city can possibly get, one of Ljubljana’s key attractions is the river found snaking its way around Castle Hill, a thickly forested mound with a 15th century castle perched at its top.

Day 3 – Piran & Lipica

This morning sees us crossing to the other side of the country, to the tiny stretch of coastline at the Gulf of Trieste. Facing Venice across the Adriatic, seaside Piran mirrors its Italian neighbour. Explore its works of Venetian art or maybe walk along the city walls. In the afternoon, travel to nearby Lipica, where you can get close to the rare breed of Lipizzaner horses at the Classical Riding School.

Day 4 – Ptuj & Maribor

After breakfast we leave the bustling capital behind and head north east towards the Hungarian border, first stopping at almost impossibly pretty Ptuj, which sits quietly beside the Drava River. Said to be the oldest town in Slovenia, Ptuj packs plenty of historical importance into its small centre, and after a brief orientation of the Old Town, you’ll be left to uncover these gems for yourself. From there, you’ll visit Maribor, where you’ll take another guided tour, seeing the celebrated Old Vine and the Town Hall and Plague Column. In the afternoon, experience a wine tasting.

Day 5 – Lake Bled

There are so many superlatives to describe Slovenia’s most famous attraction, Lake Bled. Sail over to Bled Island on a traditional canopied boat. Here you can climb the church’s south staircase or simply stroll around the island. The afternoon is at leisure to explore Bled itself.

Day 6 – Return Home

At the appropriate time you will be transferred to the airport for your flight home.

Hotel Lev, Ljubljana
The elegant four-star Hotel Lev is close to all major sightseeing attractions and is located a very short distance to the old town.

Hotel Slon, Ljubljana
The ideally-located four-star Hotel Slon – Elephant is located in the heart of Ljubljana city centre in a bustling, pedestrianised area, mere steps away from the main sights of this picturesque city, such as the old town and Ljubljana Castle.
