Ljubljana

— 4 nights
Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bled (Triglav National Park, Zipline, &more), Vintgar Gorge (in Zgornje Gorje) and Pokljuka Gorge (in Krnica). There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of Postojna Cave, step into the grandiose world of Predjama Castle, snap pictures at Triple Bridge, and examine the collection at House of Illusions.

Plan my Ljubljana trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Rome, Italy to Ljubljana is an approximately 4-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also drive; or fly. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Rome in August; daily highs in Ljubljana reach 31°C and lows reach 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to drive to Bohinjsko Jezero.

Sunny Side of the Alps
From snowcapped Alpine peaks to sandy Adriatic beaches, a trip to Slovenia is like taking several vacations at once. Whatever the season, the country offers enticing natural attractions, all close at hand, including thick forests, scenic valleys, cave systems, waterfalls, lakes, and the Adriatic coast. For those seeking an active holiday, you'll fine an abundance of ski slopes, trails to hike, roads to bike, and rocks to climb. Pay a visit to some of Slovenia's spa resorts and take advantage of the fresh mountain air and thermal waters. Various castles, churches, and historical towns--many of which are fully preserved--tell stories of the country's past. In Slovenia's major cities, admire the architecture, explore the local arts, visit museums, and chat with the locals over a cup of coffee. Slovenian cuisine offers a blend of Alpine and Mediterranean tastes and is definitely worth trying, along with the country's wines.
