Blend a city break with magnificent lake and mountain scenery and end with beachfront relaxation in the enchanting resort of Piran
This holiday starts in Ljubljana, where we have an excellent choice of boutique and luxury hotels. For more details of the city and which hotels are available.
On leaving Ljubljana you will be taken by car to Lake Bled, to stay amidst the beautiful Alpine scenery. The active can choose to hike, cycle or even canoe or swim in the lakes - or if you prefer, you can simply lie back and enjoy the scenery.
You will be driven from Lake Bled to Slovenia’s coast. It only runs for 27 miles or so along the Adriatic, but it is a beautiful area, rich with Venetian architecture and beloved by the Habsburg aristocracy.
En route, you will make a visit to one of Europe’s most popular natural attractions, the magnificent Postojna Caves. These impressive caverns and tunnels run for some 12 miles under the ground, and include breath-taking stalactites and stalacmites.
Piran is the jewel of Slovenia’s coast. Its vast wealth was built on the salt it shipped from nearby Secovlje to Venice, and its grand Italianate buildings still remain. It is a beautiful town of narrow alleys and splendid piazzas, overlooked by the imposing St. George’s Cathedral.
