Luxury Tailor Made Journeys depart on the dates that work for you and feature expert local guides throughout your journey. The itinerary below can be customized to your interests.
Arrive Ljubljana, Slovenia
Arrive in Ljubljana, where you are met by your Guardian Angel and transferred to your hotel in the heart of the city. This evening, take a leisurely stroll through the picturesque town, pausing for a cup of coffee or cocktail in the main square or alongside the relaxing river front.
Ljubljana | Lively City
Set out on a walking tour of Ljubljana, seeing its beautiful Baroque architecture and the river that intersects the city. Visit the Three Bridges area, where a trio of bridges connects the historical, medieval and modern districts. Proceed to the cathedral; bustling, riverfront Central Market with its Slovenian food stalls; charming Prešern Square; and star-shaped Congress Square, site of the Baroque Ursuline Church of the Holy Trinity and the Kazina building, one of the few Neoclassical buildings to withstand the earthquake of 1895. As the morning visit comes to a close, take the funicular railway up to the castle for panoramic views of the city and soaring Alps.
Lake Bled, Croatia | Idyllic Emerald Waters
Depart this morning for stunning Lake Bled, its emerald-green waters fringed by the Alps’ looming peaks. Upon arrival, take a relaxing walk along the lakeshore. Then, board an old-fashioned pletna (gondola) for a boat ride across Lake Bled. Upon reaching the small, picturesque island at its center, disembark to see the Church of the Assumption, its 15th-century belfry thought to bring good luck. Visit the castle, taking in breathtaking vistas of mountains, lake and countryside. Back ashore, enjoy a slice of Lake Bled’s delicious kremsnita cake — a flaky puff pastry and Chantilly cream confection — alongside a cup of coffee or tea. Proceed to Zagreb, Croatia’s fascinating capital city, where you check in to your hotel.
Zagreb | Charismatic City
Set out on a walking tour to discover the wonders of Zagreb, Croatia’s economic, political and cultural hub. This dazzling, cosmopolitan city surrounded by parks and woodland is perched between the Sava River and the slopes of Mount Medvednica. In Gornji Grad (Upper Town), view art galleries, the parliament building and the cathedral. Proceed to Donji Grad (Lower Town), which is filled with world-class museums, open-air markets, the stunning Croatian National Theater, trendy boutiques and a vibrant café culture.
Split | Scenic Vistas
Today, transfer to Split by private vehicle, pausing en route to enjoy the stunning scenery of Plitvice Lakes National Park. On a guided walk, see the shimmering, turquoise Plitvice Lakes, listed on the UNESCO Register of World Natural Heritage; the cascading waterfalls linked by emerald forests; and wildflower-laden meadows. Then, continue on your journey to the coastal town of Split, where you check in to your luxury hotel for the remainder of your Tailor Made journey.
