Day 1: UK/Ptuj

After flying to Zagreb, we will transfer you to Ptuj, Slovenia's oldest town. Located on the Drava River it is home to an enchanting and beautifully preserved medieval centre.​

Day 2: Ptuj

This morning, we'll head off on a walking tour of this unique town, which boasts a fascinating Roman heritage. The region is also known for its wine-making, so we'll drop by the Ptuj Wine Cellar where, of course, we'll enjoy a tasting of some excellent wines.​

Day 3: Maribor

A day of exploration will take you to Maribor, a former European Capital of Culture. A remarkable sight here is the Zametovka Old Vine, the world's oldest living vine specimen to still bear grapes.

Day 4: Lake Bled

You're going to experience Lake Bled's abundance of natural beauty today on a sightseeing tour. Firstly, we'll take a cruise on the lake and visit St Mary's Church, which is set on an island surrounded by the emerald-green waters.
After this we'll drive to Bled Castle, which is located on a cliff offering beautiful views over the lake.

Day 5: Ljubljana

Today you're going to discover Slovenia's capital Ljubljana, one of Europe's oldest. You'll have plenty of free time to take a stroll around its centre, where Baroque buildings and ancient ramparts are overlooked by a grand castle. 
Our sightseeing takes a different turn this afternoon, when we arrive at the Postojna caves, carved over thousands of years by the Pivka River. 

Day 6: Opatija

​If you would like to indulge in a little 'me' time, you can spend today at leisure. Perhaps you'll sample the hotel's hand-made chocolates, or enjoy a stroll along the lovely promenade which is lined with vibrant flowers and shrubs.

Day 7: Opatija

The choice is all yours today, you can enjoy a day of relaxation in your resort, or you can join an optional excursion. We'll head to Krk Island, which is connected to the mainland by a bridge.
