Our walking tours will take us to the 900 years old Ljubljana Castle that offers best views of the city; we shall meet the legacy of Jože Plečnik, a world-renowned architect who enriched Ljubljana with amazing urban planning and gems like the famous Triple Bridge. We shall treat our tasting buds with sampling fresh fruit at the Central Market and enjoy an amazing range of over 30 street food cuisines at the Open Kitchen food market. The Tivoli Park, the largest park of the city, will lure us into exploring its maze of paths that lead to the Tivoli Castle and ‘Švicarija’, home to the artists (if the pronunciation of the word reminds you of something Swiss, you may be onto something).
Arboretum and Škofja Loka Tour
Arboretum Volčji Potok is the most popular garden in Slovenia. It sits at the foot of the the Kamnik and Savinja Alps with amazing view over the mountains. The property spreads over 85 hectares of lush and colourful plants and trees, which guarantees a wonderful immersing into the beauty of nature.

The Carniolan Honey Bee Tour
Apiculture is a very important and cherished industry to Slovenia. The long tradition of respecting and keeping bees is supported by the fact that it is the home of Apis mellifera carnica, the Carniolan honey bee, one of the most hardworking bees in the world. The interactive museum in Višnja Gora, a small town southeast of Ljubljana, is dedicated to the little honey giant and only a few minutes’ drive away is another unique site we shall visit. The Stična Abbey is an ancient and the only still functioning Cistercian monastery in Slovenia, a home of some of the greatest cultural, religious and architectural monuments dating as early as 1132.
