Ljubljana to Venice


Did you know the distance between Ljubljana and Venice is only about 240 km?

Slovenia is a small and well-connected country with a central location in Europe, which makes travelling to its neighbouring countries especially easy and convenient. Using Slovenia’s small size as an advantage, we will take you on a day trip from Ljubljana to Venice, the city of marble palaces.

Venice, with its canals and prestigious palaces, is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities and most popular destinations in the world. Just a few hours’ drive from Slovenia, it is a perfect day trip for you to take during your stay in Ljubljana. Come along with us on a mesmerising sightseeing tour of the Queen of the Adriatic!

Leaving Ljubljana in the early morning hours, we will drive through the beautiful scenery of south-western Slovenia and pass by a few of Slovenia’s lovely towns and villages while approaching the Mediterranean coast.

Upon arriving in Venice, our guide will take you on a tour of this wonderful lagoon port, which is also the capital of the Veneto region. You will get to see the famous St. Mark’s Square and Basilica with its exceptional gold mosaics, the Grand Canal and Rialto Bridge, the Doge’s Palace and the evocative Bridge of Sighs, and much more.

While walking to St. Mark’s Square and around the town, you will get to feel the romantic Venetian ambience and admire its attractions along the way. While it can be hard sometimes to find your way around the narrow streets of Venice, our guide will make it a piece of cake to navigate them! On your way back, you can choose to either walk some more or take a vaporetto ride – one of the staples of Venice!

We will, of course, also find some time to enjoy high-end shopping, delightful coffee and delicious tiramisu.
