Day 1 Zagreb, Croatia
Arrive in Zagreb and soak up the city’s lively atmosphere. Start in the Upper Town and admire the city views over the striking red rooftops. This afternoon pay a visit to the City Museum or the quirky Museum of Broken Relationships, a light hearted homage to heartbreak around the world.

Finish the tour with a walk through serene Mirogoj Cemetery and a coffee in one of the lovely city squares.

Day 4 Lake Bled
Start the day early with a one hour drive north to Lake Bled, located at the foot of the Julian Alps. This stunning region offers plenty of walking trails and secret beaches. Perhaps hop on a boat across to Bled Island and visit the Baroque Church of Assumption. At the end of the day head back to Ljubljana for your final night in the city.
Day 5 Ljubljana to Porec, Croatia
Spend the morning exploring Ljubljana Castle. Dating back to the 11th Century and reached by a 70m funicular, the Outlook Tower offers fantastic views over the city. After your visit, drive south, stopping off at Postojna Caves, a breathtaking subterranean kingdom filled with towering stalagmites and even a railway passing through 3.7km of caverns. Drive on to Porec on Istria’s west coast.
Days 6-7 Porec
Overlooking the glistening Adriatic, this picturesque Roman town is a maze of cobbled streets and small plazas. Meander down to the small pebble beach, visit the neighbouring walled town of Novigrad or even head inland to explore the rolling hills and pretty vineyards.

After breakfast drive to Pula for a final day of sightseeing. Marvel at the remarkably well-preserved Temple of Augustus and the spectacular Roman amphitheatre, built in the 1st Century AD.
