With its grand architecture and thriving café culture, Ljubljana is Slovenia’s answer to Prague. On this tour, we’ll whisk you over the Italian border and take you on a two-hour walking tour through this charm-packed city. Ljubljana’s origins are as ancient as they come – it’s said that the mythical Greek hero, Jason, founded the place after stealing the Golden Fleece. These days, it’s the Baroque Old Town that gets all the attention. It’s nestled on the right bank of the Ljubljanica River, at the foot of forested Castle Hill. You’ll have a chance to duck inside Ljubljana Cathedral, with its peaches and cream exterior, before having a look at the burnished insides of the Church of the Annunciation. You’ll also wander past a dragon-topped bridge and the fruit stalls of the Central Market. Afterwards, you’ll have plenty of free time to dig around the Old Town or kick back in one of the city’s ubiquitous coffee shops.
