Help with Slovenia Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! These forums are a great resource. I'm looking for a review of my Slovenian itinerary along with any suggestions for the trip including hotels. Photography is a hobby so that will drive most of what I'm looking for. In addition to photo ops I'm interested in the old world architecture, food, culture, beer and wine!

I'll be visiting in September and flying into Venice where I'll be spending a few days and then renting a car to drive to Slovenia. Below is the itinerary I've put together at this point. Any suggestions, tips, pointers, etc. would be greatly appreciated!

Days 1-3 in Venice

Day 4 - Venice to Bovec - I’m showing this leg will take around 2.5 hours. I didn’t want to travel too far today as I don’t know how long it will take to pick up the rental car in Venice. I’ve read there is a nice waterfall near Bovec so the plan would be to visit that when I arrive. Are there any other sites I should take in?

Day 5 - Bovec to Lake Bled on Route 206 through Vrsic pass - I’ve read that this is a spectacular drive. Are there places to pull over with photo ops? Any stops along the way I should take in? (I’m showing 1 hour 20 minutes drive from Bovec to Lake Bled). Spend the night somewhere around Lake Bled.

Day 6 - Lake Bled to Lake Bohinj (I’m showing a 20 minute drive). Spend the night somewhere around Lake Bohinj

Day 7 - Bohinj to Ljubljana (I’m showing a 1 hour drive). Possible make a stop in Skofja Loka. Any other stops along the way I should make? Spend the night in Ljubljana.

Day 8 - Stay in Ljubljana

Day 9 - Day trip to Kamnik and then from Kamnik take 225 and 428 into the Logar Valley (I’m showing 34 minutes to Kamnik and a 52 minute drive from Kamnik to Logar Valley). Any other stops along the way? Return to Ljubljana and spend the night there.

Day 10 - Another day in Ljubljana.

Day 11 - Day trip to Predjama Castle and possibly the Postojna Caves (I’m showing a 40 minute druve to Postojna)

Day 12 - Return to Venice (I’m showing a 3 hour drive)

Thanks in advance!
