Vienna to Venice

Our multi-day tour package Vienna to Venice includes visiting Slovenian capital Ljubljana along with Slovenian greatest attractions, such as Lake Bled, Piran, Portorož, Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle, as well as Venice, the magical city of marble palaces, and Austria’s capital Vienna. We begin and conclude the tour in Vienna, thus making it a well-structured round tour to show you the best of this area.

Slovenia is a country full of natural treasures, as nearly one third of Slovenia is under natural protection and 60 % of it is covered with forest. Wherever you go, you will be surprised to find the sea so near the Alps and the Karst, the Pannonian Plain will soon change into vast forests, and the cultivated fields will transform into hills, covered with vineyards and fruit trees. The inhabitants of the “Green Heart of Europe” are hospitable, kind and hardworking. Slovenian towns are relatively small and never more than one step away from nature.

Venice, with its canals and prestigious palaces, is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities and most popular destinations in the world. It is known as “the Queen of the Adriatic” and features glorious architecture, romantic gondolas and picturesque scenery.

Wiener Schnitzel or Sacher Torte? Vienna is simply one of a kind. Baroque streetscapes, imperial architecture from the times of the Habsburg monarchy, museums and palaces, exquisite cuisine, coffee-house culture and vibrant urban scene create a unique and colourful offer that never disappoints!

Day 3: Postojna Cave, Predjama Castle, Portorož

After breakfast, we will visit the Postojna Cave, one of the largest Karst landmarks in the world. An electric train will take us through the tunnels of the cave, which is with its 20 km long cave system the most impressive and the most visited cave in Europe. We will be able to spot human fish, the most famous cave animals in the world that used to be believed to be dragon offspring. We will continue with a tour of the mighty Predjama Castle from the 12th century, mounted on a 123 m high cliff above the Lokva River. There are many mysterious tales and legends about the castle and its knights. The most famous of them all is the story of Knight Erazem of Predjama, who rebelled in the 15th century against the emperor and became the first Slovenian Robin Hood. Today’s castle is from the Renaissance period and incorporates a museum. Our day comes to an end in Portorož, the modern capital of Slovenian tourism, where the remaining afternoon is free for exploring the town. With its Mediterranean climate, unforgettable sunsets over the Adriatic Sea, spa and wellness centres, this is the place to visit when you want to relax and be pampered.

We will visit the city centre and the mesmerising Miramare Castle (entrance optional), built by Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian I for himself and his wife Charlotte of Belgium. It shows its visitors an example of a luxurious aristocratic residence, which has preserved its original furnishings. The Slovenian coastal road will lead us to the lovely town of Piran, also called “little Venice”. We will walk through its narrow streets and beautiful squares up to the church of St. George to see the view of three countries – Slovenia, Italy and Croatia, as well as nearby salt fields. The salt there is acquired from the sea in a unique, traditional and natural way: with the help of the sun, petola mud and wind. Overnight stay near Portorož.
