Description

Join us on our exploration of Venetian Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. From the enchanting Adriatic coastline, to silver lakes and Alpine peaks, medieval castles, and Italian inspired architecture, our tour uncovers the wealth of natural beauty and cultural history of Slovenia, often described as Europe's "boutique destination". Away from big crowds, you will experience an unusual and engaging cultural blend of some of Europe's least-discovered landscapes. Visit also Croatia, and explore a Tuscan-like Istrian peninsula crammed with hill-top villages and rolling hills of vineyards and olive groves. The luxurious, Kempinski Palace will be your home for five nights, then you will conclude your journey with a two night stay in Venice.
