Portoroz

À propos de la ville

Portorož / Portorose est une ville côtière de l'Adriatique située dans la municipalité de Piran / Pirano, dans le sud-ouest de la Slovénie. Son développement moderne a commencé à la fin du 19ème siècle avec l'apparition des premières stations thermales. Au début du 20e siècle, elle devint l'une des plus grandes stations balnéaires d'Europe centrale, aux côtés d'Opatija / Abbazia, du Lido et de Grado, faisant ensuite partie du littoral autrichien. Partie de l'Italie entre 1918 et 1947, c'est aujourd'hui l'une des principales zones touristiques du pays. Situé dans le centre, l'hôtel Palace, qui était autrefois l'une des plus importantes stations balnéaires de la monarchie austro-hongroise, est actuellement l'un des meilleurs hôtels entre Venise et Dubrovnik.

What you can expect

Your day starts at midday with a pickup by a deluxe car at select hotels in Portorož. Take in the scenery as you depart the Slovenian Riviera for a 45-minute drive to Lipica stud farm. Lipizzaner horses are the pride of Slovenia and every horse lover has heard of them. The Lipica Stud Farm is one of the world’s oldest stud farms, which has existed and operated continuously since its establishment in the 16th century. Visit the Lipica Stud Farm and take a private guided tour through the farm. Stop at the historic center with its famous "yard", the mansion and Velbanca – the oldest stable in Lipica. A walk through the estate is like a stroll through history. From there, proceed to an artisan picnic lunch overlooking the stud farm.

Afterwards, drive for about one hour to Goriška Brda, Slovenia’s most most widely known and prominent wine region. Stop at the Gonjače lookout tower, to get the overview of the region and then to the nearby village Šmartno. Šmartno, a village first mentioned in the 14th century in surrounded by defense walls.

The tour will continue to the old town of Šmartno, located in the center of Goriška Brda. Admire the charming scenery as you take a short walk inside the walls of this picturesque village, made up of five preserved towers, perched on a panoramic hill like an eagle’s nest which can be seen from every corner of Brda.

Your next stop is for your private wine tasting experience at a local boutique winemaker. Wine tastings will take place in the wine cellar or a tasting room and led by a professional sommelier, a winemaker or both. Red, white or sparkling wines–- whichever you prefer most, will be your choice for wine tasting of several different varieties from the wine producer (one or more of them). It is favoured that you follow three simple rules: look, smell and taste. But that is not all; the winemaker will share his/her story of how he/she makes wine and the vineyard’s history.

The last stop on your culinary tour is reserved for a five course gourmet dinner in Gredič Restaurant. The area Brda/Collio is probably one of the most exciting culinary regions in the world. Here, subtle Mediterranean influences meet strong continental tastes, demanding the disciplined Austro-Slovenian tradition to adopt vivid Italian creativity and rich heritage. The constant desire to explore, using the finest fresh ingredients, modern culinary, technological knowledge, appreciation of the aforementioned factors and the tradition make the main feature of the Gredič restaurant. With this in mind, you can quickly satisfy your curiosity, as well as your hunger, but it is most exciting when you take the time and allow yourself to be led to a gastronomic excur­sion.


After gourmet dinner stay in your Goriška Brda hotel or transfer to Portorož by your driver / guide.

Enjoy a hassle-free day of gorgeous views and iconic sights at Lipica stud farm and Goriška Brda wine region!

Ljubljana

À propos de la ville

À première vue, Ljubljana, la capitale de la Slovénie, semble presque trop belle pour être vraie. Nichés contre la colline surmontée d'un e-sommet, les bâtiments baroques et peints de folklore de la vieille ville ressemblent à un conte de fées. En fait, Ljubljana fait vraiment partie du monde réel; l'industrie et les arts y sont florissants et le commerce est en plein essor, charmant et tellement facile pour le visiteur étranger. Moderne et sophistiquée, Ljubljana pourrait bien être l'une des villes les plus agréables d'Europe. Ljubljana regorge de sites à visiter, que ce soit le château de la ville qui offre une vue magnifique sur la région depuis sa colline, ses musées et ses galeries d’art ou la culture locale avec de la bonne nourriture et des boissons, notamment de la bière. La colline avec le château de Ljubljana est située dans le centre-ville et la rivière étroite Ljubljanica y circule lentement. Le vieux centre-ville est situé sous cette colline, sur les rives de la rivière Ljubljanica. Le centre de la ville est la place Preseren avec ses 3 ponts, Tromostovje. De là, descendez la rue Stritarjeva pour rejoindre les anciens châteaux de Ljubljana et de Ljubljana. Promenez-vous dans la rue Copova pour rejoindre le parc Tivoli, un parc magnifique, célèbre pour ses boulevards, son jardin fleuri et son lac. À l'intérieur du parc, nous avons le Centre international des arts graphiques. Mais pour profiter pleinement de Ljubljana, promenez-vous le soir sur les rives du fleuve Ljubljanica, écoutez de la musique de rue, installez-vous dans l’un des nombreux restaurants et profitez de l’atmosphère détendue.

Shared tour: Best of Ljubljana old town walk with guide

jour 3 - 11:00 AM - Default

Discover the European Green Capital 2016! During the tour you will see most of Ljubljana's main attractions. The guide will explain you Ljubljana's history and show you some of the nicest corners of Slovenia's capital: The Town Hall, a walking tour of Plečnik's architectural masterpieces, Križanke open-air theatre, the Napoleon monument, Central Food market, Prešeren square, Congress Square, the Triple Bridge, the Dragon Bridge and other.


Highlights:

• Discover the main Ljubljana attractions

• Learn the history of the city

• Explore city secrets

• Dragon Bridge There are two legends associated with the Dragon Bridge, built in 1901. The first states that Jason, the ancient Greek mythological hero, founded the city of Ljubljana by slaying a dragon – that same infamous dragon is now portrayed in one of the four sheet-copper statues that decorate the bridge. The second legend claims that the four dragons the bridge is named after, wag their tails every time a virgin passes by. The beautiful structure of the bridge and the legends associated with it have made it one of the city’s key attractions.

• Prešeren Monument Prešeren Monument depicts the famous Slovene poet Dr. France Prešeren. He is also the author of Slovenia’s national anthem. The monument is situated in Prešeren Square, and the statue of the poet faces the window of his unanswered love, Julia Primic. The 3.35-meter (11 feet) statue is accompanied by a muse sitting on a rock above the poet, holding a laurel wreath in her hand. This famous city attraction was designed by Maks Fabiani and Ivan Zajc.

• Triple Bridge The main bridge out of the three that form Ljubljana’s Triple Bridge was built in 1842, while the other two were added later in 1932 by the notable Slovene architect Jože Plečnik. The finished design, the Triple Bridge, is now the main connecting bridge between the old medieval part of Ljubljana and the newer part of the city center.

• Robba Fountain The beautiful Robba Fountain, also known as the Fountain of the Three Carniolan Rivers, is placed by the Town Hall. It was made by the Italian Sculptor Francesco Robba in 1751. The statues of gods represent the three Carniolan River – Ljubljanica, Sava and Krka.

• Križanke Once a convent for priests and seminarians, Križanke is now a unique music and theatre venue, thanks to Jože Plečnik, who was assigned to convert the old monastery into a venue for the city’s events. Due to its exceptional acoustics, this is one of the most popular venues in the country. • Central Market Designed by Jože Plečnik, and built in 1939, the Central Market is one of the liveliest parts of Ljubljana. There are three main market areas; the covered part with stands selling traditional Slovenian products,

 

What you can expect

Ljubljana has been coveted over the centuries by Celts, Illyrians, Romans and finally the Slavs, who have all left their mark. One of the most prominent people to have left their mark in Ljubljana is the Slovenian Gaudi, Jože Plečnik. Like Gaudi, Plečnik was extremely imaginative and creative. He built a modern capital, but with a touch of ancient Greek architecture, by adding pillars, balusters and similar.

The focus of the city Prešeren square, the Triple Bridge, the Old Town and Ljubljana Castle, but since Ljubljana is quite petit, you can explore much more in a day or two. This capital has something for everyone; whether they be the main city attractions, museums and galleries, parks, or cafes and restaurants by Ljubljanica river.

 

Inclusions:

• Guided walking tour of Ljubljana

• Gratuities (optional)

À propos de la ville

Le symbole le plus reconnaissable du lac est l’Eglise de l’Assomption avec sa longue et diverse histoire, mais la végétation luxuriante cache également d’autres îles intéressantes, comme le clocher, l’église, la maison de l’aumônier, la maison du prévôt, un petit ermitage et des lieux mystérieux. légendes. Le symbole le plus renommé de l'île est l'église de l'Assomption, qui exige une montée des 99 marches d'escalier en pierre. Si vous visitez l'île au bon moment, prenez le temps d'assister à un mariage dans un cadre romantique. En ce qui concerne la cloche de souhait est concerné. Ne fais pas que regarder. Sonne.
