Itinerary

View full itinerary

Welcome to Slovenia! After arriving at Ljubljana Airport, we’ll proceed through immigration and collect our luggage before heading to our hotel in Ljubljana.

  • Accommodation 3 * City Hotel Ljubljana
  • MEALS Dinner included

After breakfast we will begin our walking guided tour of Ljubljana old town. On this walking tour we will stroll along medieval streets, admire an interesting blend of different architectural styles and hear stories and fairy tales that connect the present and the past.
The tour is on foot because it is much easier to get around Ljubljana’s pedestrian Old Town. We will see all the major sights in Ljubljana including the main square with the Prešeren monument, Franciscan Church and Three Bridges, Congress Square (Park of the Star), National University Library, Križanke Monastery, New Square, Cobbler's Bridge, Old Square (the oldest street), the romantic river promenade, Municipality Square, St. Nicholas Cathedral, the famous Open Air Market, Butcher's Bridge and Dragon Bridge.

The rest of the day is free for you to explore Ljubljana independently. In the evening we will gather for a welcome drink and dinner at the hotel.

  • Accommodation 3 * City Hotel Ljubljana
  • MEALS Breakfast & Dinner included

After breakfast we will transfer to Bled, a Slovenian resort town in the foothills of the Julian Alps, set along the glacial Lake Bled. For centuries it has been the symbol of natural beauty and home to fairy tales. Ascend the old 12th-century castle, perched on top of a steep cliff with spectacular views of the lake, the famous Bled Island and the surrounding peaks. The castle is not only home to fairy tale weddings, cultural events and important protocol meetings, but also a museum of manual printing and a wine cellar.

We will discover Slovenia's most spectacular site – the famous Bled with its iconic lake and the one and only island in Slovenia. We will enjoy unique natural sceneries, learn about local crafts & traditions of one of Europe's most picturesque alpine regions before our Christmas day lunch at Bled Castle restaurant.

 In the afternoon we will return to Ljubljana.
