Portoroz

A proposito della città

Portorož/Portorose is an Adriatic coastal town in the Municipality of Piran/Pirano in south-western Slovenia. Its modern development began in the late 19th century with appearance of first health resorts. In the early 20th century it became one of the grandest seaside resorts in Central Europe, along with Opatija/Abbazia, Lido and Grado, then as part of the Austrian Littoral. Part of Italy from 1918 and 1947, it is now one of the country's major tourist areas. Located in the centre is the Hotel Palace, once one of the most important resorts for the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and currently one of the finest hotels between Venice and 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

A proposito della città

At first glance, Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, seems almost too good to be true. Tucked up against the town’s e-topped hill, the baroque and folk-painted buildings of the old town are like something out of a fairytale. In fact, Ljubljana is very much a part of the real world; industry and the arts flourish here, and commerce is booming lively, lovely, and oh-so-easy for the foreign visitor, modern, sophisticated Ljubljana may well be one of the most pleasant city in Europe. Ljubljana has plenty of places to visit whether they be the city's castle which offers great views over the area from its hill top position, the fine museums and art galleries or taking in the local culture with good local food and drinks, especially beer. The hill with Ljubljana castle is situated in the city centre and narrow river Ljubljanica is slowly circulating around it. The old city centre is situated below this hill on the banks of Ljubljanica River. The focus of the city is Preseren square with its 3 bridges, Tromostovje. From there walk down Stritarjeva street to reach old Ljubljana and Ljubljana castle. Stroll down Copova street to reach Tivoli Park, a gorgeous park, famous for its boulevards, its flower garden and lake. Inside the park we have the International Centre of Graphic Arts. But to really enjoy Ljubljana walk along the Ljubljanica river banks in the evening, listen to the street music, sit in one of the numerous restaurants and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere.
