Slovenia & Italy

Cycling 8 Days

Slovenia and Italy are the perfect pairing of countries to combine into one exhilarating bike tour. What’s to like? Slovenia is bordered by Italy, Hungary, Austria and Croatia and has been influenced in its cuisine, art and culture. The country is small with dramatic scenery, quiet roads to bike and some wonderful hotels. Starting in Ljubljana, a stunningly beautiful and vibrant city, with its Old World Plazas, baroque churches and dramatic castles. Then Bled, with its wondrous turquoise lake, and island monastery, and divine cycling, some along new dedicated bike paths that wind majestically through bucolic countryside and past aqua-marine lakes. If you need assistance over the Vrsic pass, we’re there for you with assistance. But don’t miss the unending descent down the Soca valley, following the serpentine Soca river towards Italy. In Friuli, Italy, you will ride through vineyards and orchards, and in Unesco World Heritage town of Cividale, you will, as we did, find heaven on earth. Did we mention the food is some of the best in Europe? We’ve got a treasure trove of ‘off-the-beaten path’ restaurants, wine tasting opportunities and other discoveries to share. This will surely become one of our most popular trips –go soon, before the secret is out.

Hisa Franko, Kobarid
This unique inn is one-of-a-kind in every sense of the word. It is classy, yet casual, elegant, yet welcoming. It may well be unlike any place you have ever stayed. Give in to the magic and enjoy. The restaurant needs little introduction for foodies who come from near and far to experience Ana’s cooking and Walter’s cellar. Note: The alternate hotel is Dobra Villa in Bovec a luxurious 4-star hotel with excellent restaurant also.

 

Locanda Al Pomo D'Oro, Cividale * Casual Inn
