Croatia and Slovenia Explored

Itinerary Highlights

  • Istria - 7 days
    Once part of Italy, the colourful Croatian peninsula of Istria is a fascinating blend of its Italian and Mediterranean heritage. Situated on the coast and surrounded by pine trees lies the charming Monte Mulini Hotel - the perfect place from which to discover Istria's wonders. After a leisurely breakfast, head off to explore the picturesque fishing port of Rovinj or perhaps visit the stunning Zlatni Rt National Park.

    Moving inland, enjoy some Italianesque pastimes such as truffle-hunting in Buzet, wine-making and visiting hilltop villages with a distinctly Tuscan air. Head off the beaten track and discover the enchanting towns of Svetvincenat, Gracice and Porec, the later boasting an impressive Western Byzantine church. It's even possible to enjoy a day trip to romantic Venice by boat.

  • Ljubljana - 3 days
    Travel overland to Slovenia's intriguing capital, Ljubljana, which is a charming blend of Slavic Latin and Germanic elements. Lying on the banks of the Ljubljanica river beneath Castle Hill, the peaceful Vander Urbani Resort awaits. Providing guests with a quiet retreat in the heart of Ljubljana's centre, The Vander Urbani is the perfect place to spend a peaceful afternoon sunbathing on the hotel's shared terrace or soaking in the rooftop pool.

    Ljubljana is often described as a pocket-sized Prague, due to its scarlet Baroque rooftops and meandering streets, but the city has a Southern side, with cobbled piazzas that invite visitors to indulge in lengthy coffee breaks in the sun. The medieval towers of Ljubljana Castle dominate the skyline and situated just a 10-minute walk from the Vander Urbani.
