Ljubljana enjoys a central position, making it the ideal base for exploring the rest of Slovenia. It is a crossroads culturally due to its location. On one hand, you can see its Central European influences, because of its time within the Austro-Hungarian empire, in the city's architecture and language. On the other hand there is a strong Mediterranean and Balkan influence which is brought out in their laid back approach and the city's cafe culture. People are often surprised how westernized and advanced Slovenia is putting it more in a class with its Austrian neighbors than its Eastern European and Balkan counterparts. The surrounding areas of the city are packed with natural beauty and cultural sights bearing witness to the city's dynamic history. There is diverse range of places to satisfy culinary desires as the local cuisine is also heavily influenced by its neighbors in all directions. Wine lovers will find Slovenia to be a hidden gem. One of the best ways we have found to get to know Ljubljana and Slovenian cuisine at the same time is on a food tour, which will take you on a gastronomic tour of the whole country while walking around the center. The city layout is tourist friendly as the Old Town has an ever expanding pedestrian zone and a great way to see Ljubljana is by bike taking advantage of the numerous bike lanes spread out across the city.

Bled and Bohinj Private Day Trip

Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and Vintgar Gorge

Slovenia is relatively small, so it’s easy enough to explore. From Ljubljana, our top recommendation is a day trip to Lake Bled and the stunning surrounding area. Here you can spend the afternoon enjoying the gorgeous glacial lake and medieval castle situated on an island. You’ll be picked up from your accommodation and driven to Lake Bled, where you’ll have a local guide to show you all the sights. You can stroll along the alluring jade water, hike through the surrounding forests, or even pilot a boat to float romantically over the lake. Before visiting your next stop, Vintgar Gorge, a 1.6 kilometer long gorge with steep depths and vertical walls, you’ll have the chance to visit the center of Bled, where you can have lunch and a short walk to take some pictures. After the gorge you’ll visit another even more picturesque and peaceful lake, Bohinj in the heart of the Triglav National Park before heading back to Ljubljana.

3 Nights in Salzburg

With its perfectly preserved UNESCO-listed Old Town, Salzburg is internationally renowned for its baroque architecture. Add in the alpine backdrop and you’ve got a city that makes for an unforgettable vacation. The imposing Salzburg Cathedral and Hohensalzburg Fortress dominate the skyline, while in the center you’ll find plenty of grand cafes and fine restaurants. Salzburg’s two biggest claims to fame are that it was the birthplace of Mozart and the stage for the timeless musical The Sound of Music. But there’s more than just history here. Today the city is a vibrant destination for travelers looking for a mix of classic culture and modern flair. Strolling through Salzburg is one of the great pleasures of Europe. The local cuisine is hearty and there are more than enough restaurants, bars, and cafes to keep you busy. Beer lovers shouldn’t miss sampling a stein or two of delicious local brew at the Augustiner brewery. But there is so much to see in the surrounding region that no visit to the city is complete without a day trip or two. You could tour the pristine countryside and visit the stunning Hellbrunn Palace. History buffs will want to venture farther afield to visit Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest perched high in the German Alps in Berchtesgaden.

Suggestion to explore on your own

Salzburg is famous for being the birthplace of Mozart, and a visit to the city is the best way to learn more about this world-renowned composer. There are numerous Mozart-related sights around the city, starting with the Hagenauer House, where Mozart was born. It’s now a unique museum dedicated to the composer and is certainly worth a visit. Then you can cross the river to the house where he lived from 1773 to 1780, which is also now a worthwhile attraction. After visiting the museum you’ll cross the river to visit Mozart’s next house, which features exhibitions about his later life and success as a composer. Finally, you could visit Furst Cafe, home of the world-famous Mozart chocolate, the Mozartkugel.

Day 7

Day 7 - Traveling to Vienna by Private Car

3 Nights in Vienna

Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. Stephansplatz, Vienna's main square, is dominated by the impressive eponymous gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg Palace. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable vacation.

Vienna's Wine Taverns

Suggestion to explore on your own

Austrian wines, especially whites, can be a real treat. Wine and food lovers who also like a little historic adventure with your meal should plan a visit to one of Vienna's heurigers. A heuriger is basically a wine tavern which only serves Viennese wines, typically from the attached or nearby vineyards. Officially a heuriger is a tavern owned by a wine-grower where they can only serve their own wines. They offer classic Austrian dishes and some even have musical entertainment. Not only is the wine really local, it’s also really fresh – by law only wines from the current vintage are on offer, and the time for the sale to end is traditionally November 11, St. Martin’s Day. You can learn more about these lovely wine taverns in this blog post.

The Great Outdoors: Danube Park and Prater Park

Suggestion to explore on your own

When the weather is good, there are plenty of beautiful parks in Vienna that are perfect for a stroll or a picnic. We particularly like two of them. Danube Park is in the heart of the greenest district in Vienna. The park’s fragrant Rosarium is home to about 35,000 roses. Stop by the Iris Lake cafe for a lakeside coffee with a beautiful view. Another great option, especially if you’re with children, is Prater Park. It’s the location of the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of the most beloved symbols of Vienna.

Taste Vienna: Figimuller, Sacher Cafe, and Naschmarkt

Please ask your travel advisor for the cost to add this to your package

Today is a great day to see taste some of the gastronomic delicacies Vienna has to offer and to get familiar with its lovely cafes. We recommend three destinations in particular. Figimuller is a classic Viennese restaurant where the schnitzel was invented in 1904. Sacher Cafe is home to the world famous Sacher cake. Cafe Demel is another place where Vienna's grand cafe culture still lives on. Naschmarkt is a vast outdoor market where you’ll find everything from fresh fruit to cured meat. All of these options are in the center and are walkable from your accommodation. If you'd prefer the conviviality and overall experience of a guided food tour, we can arrange that too.
