Enjoy two divine destinations on one dreamy getaway. Slovenia is tucked away in the heart of Europe and boasts turquoise-blue waters and jagged mountain peaks. Austria will enchant you with spectacular landscapes and gothic architecture. Our first base is Lake Bled, a timeless resort town nestling in the foothills of the Julian Alps. We include entry to Bled Castle, built around two medieval courtyards and featuring a sixteenth century chapel, a forge and a knights’ hall. After exploring, we continue the olden days theme with a romantic horse and carriage ride. Out and about we enjoy a guided tour of Ljubljana where sights include the bizarre Triple Bridge and the Ursuline Church of the Holy Trinity. Moving on to Austria, we discover the Sound of Musiccity of Salzburg and the Alpine diamond of Hallstatt.
