Day 1

Meeting in Ljubljana or somewhere else.

Arrival in Bled to visit Bled Castle. Built on the remains of a Romanesque tower, the castle went through many changes over the centuries, from the middle Ages to the Baroque period. Nowadays Bled Castle is arranged as an exhibition area. Beside the castle, there is a space considered the most interesting part of the building due to archaeological artifacts, and the historical development represented by the furniture of the time. The furniture is not original, but it illustrates the style of each historical period in which Bled Castle was inhabited.

In the late afternoon, transfer to Ljubljana.

Check in to Hotel Lev ****.

Dinner in hotel.

Day 2

Breakfast in hotel. Here we will meet the tour guide, expert in history. Full-day excursion to Ljubljana. Built by the small river Ljubljana, the city features an interesting old town center in Baroque style and Art Nouveau. The architecture of the city, full of gabled houses, reflects the influence of the nearby Austria. Ljubljana is considered the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative heart of Slovenia. In the course of its history, Ljubljana was influenced because of its geographic position by the German, Slavic and Latin cultures.
Time for lunch, (not included),

In the afternoon,  leisure time.

We suggest a walk through the beautiful Tivoli Park, located in the city center. It is the largest park of the city.  The park extends across a flat area, located in the west part of the city centre, near the woody slopes of  Rožnik, and  Šišenski Hrib. The public park construction dates back to the late middle Ages. From the Baroque period onwards, the vegetation was planted around Podturn Castle. It has been renovated several times, and now is better known as Tivoli Castle. In the mid-nineteenth century, the railroad spoiled the park in a brutal manner. A new one, that now goes from Tivolski grad towards southeast, replaced the system of tree-lined avenues.

Dinner in a typical bistro on the banks of Liubjianica.

Day 3

Breakfast in hotel.

Here we will meet Mr. Stefano Morsolin, a passionate gardener, who knows really well some private gardens in Slovenia. He will stay with the group for two days.
In the morning, visit to Volci Potok Arboretum. In the last few years, it has become known primarily for the exhibitions of spring flowers. Visitors arriving from Slovenia and abroad are attracted by the area full of daffodils, tulips and other spring flowers. Originally, the Souvan family owned Volčji Potok Arboretum, but in 1952, the University of Liubjianica became the new owner.  Arboretum covers an area of 80 hectares of land ecologically different, with about 2.500 types of trees and shrubs. It includes well-conserved rare natural biocoenosis. Visitors can enjoy this beautiful and unique environment shaped by human hand.

Lunch in the Arboretum.

In the afternoon, visit to the small private garden Podpecek, created and designed by a university professor, where it is possible to see collections of hosta iris emerocallis. It is a particularly well kept garden. The owner will give us some history background of it.
Afterwards, head to the Botanical Garden of Ljubljana. It was open in 1810, and represents the oldest cultural, scientific and educational institution of Slovenia, which has never stopped its activities. In the garden, there are more than 4,500 species, and subspecies. More than a third are local, and the others are plants of various parts of Europe and other continents. The Garden collaborates with over 270 botanical gardens around the world, and specializes in scientific research, and pedagogical activities. The garden plays an important role in the fields of education, protection of endemic and threatened species.

Time for lunch, (not included).

In the afternoon departure for Metlika, a quiet town in the heart of Bela Krajina (White Carniola), surrounded by hills full of vineyards. Next is Painhoff Garden, a rural garden, which has retained its natural appearance, despite the interventions artfully designed by the owner.

Next is   Metlika Castle, one floor building with a pentagonal structure. It is possible to enter the castle through an atrium of two-storey tower that leads into a large internal colonnaded courtyard. The castle, which at the beginning had the characteristics of a fortress, following the refurbishment after the fires of 1705 and 1790, became a comfortable residence. The two defensive towers placed in the rear part,  on the promontory above the river Obrh, are proof of its original role. Today the castle is the seat   of Belokranjski muzej, (Museum of Bela Krajina). Its permanent exhibition presents some collections that describe the history of the region, from prehistoric times, until the middle of the XX century.

Return to Ljubljana and dinner in a local restaurant.
