Split Old Town

After breakfast, we will take part of a tour of the amazing Old Town of Split. We will meet our guide outside the Diocletian Palace and then head inside to discover the delights of its incredible ruins. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the palace was originally built as a lavish home for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, but became more like a city in its own right as more buildings were added to it throughout the ages.

The rest of the day will be free for you to enjoy the sights of the area at your own pace. If you want to continue exploring the surrounding area you can embark on a tour of the coastal inlet of Trogir — sandwiched between Croatia’s mainland and the island of Ciovo. Once surrounded by city walls, Trogir’s historical center has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in recognition of its architecture that dates back to Hellenistic times.

Later, Italy Gay Travels invites you to join dinner in one of the typical restaurants of the old town.

After check in into the hotel and lunch on your own, we will embark in a walking tour of Ljublijana. Ljubljana is often called a European jewel or described as a small blend of Prague and Amsterdam. It is a ‘town with a soul’, as visitors often comment. This vibrant old town is concentrated along the Ljubljanica River, and the castle on a hill still looks like it is protecting the romantic city below.

The tour is on foot because it is much easier to get around Ljubljana’s pedestrian Old Town. Despite the fact that it is a capital city, it is easily walkable. You 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), the National University Library, Križanke Monastery, the New Square, the Cobbler’s Bridge, the Old Square (the oldest street), the romantic river promenade, the Municipality Square, St. Nicholas Cathedral, the famous Open Air Market, Butcher’s Bridge, and Dragon Bridge.

Bled Lake and Postojna Cave

Just 45 minutes north of Ljubljana, there lies the magical Alpine resort, Bled with its magical lake. We will ascend the old castle, perched on top of a steep cliff above the lake, and take some time to enjoy spectacular views of the surroundings from the castle’s terraces. A boat ride on a ‘Pletna’ – a traditional boat  made by locals –  is mandatory when visiting Bled. We will reach the only true island in Slovenia, ring the ‘fortune bell’ and soak up the sun, peace and fresh mountain air.

Then it’s time to head south to discover the mysteries of the Slovenian karst in the Postojna cave. The guided tour of the cave takes you on a ride by electrical train and a walk through the beautiful passages and chambers with spectacular drop stones, pillars, limestone curtains, and other extraordinary wonders of the underground world.

We will continue to the idyllic village of Predjama where we will enjoy the medieval fairytale of the amazing Predjama castle, the largest cave castle with its dramatic setting in the gaping mouth of a cavern half-way up a hillside. Learn about the legend of a famous knight, Erasmus – the ‘Slovenian Robin Hood’ and other local folk traditions before heading back to Ljubljana.

In the late afternoon we will then make our way back to Ljubljana, in time to get ready for our farewell dinner.
