Zagreb and Slovenia in mid-October? Or places in Italy then.

Jump to last reply

I will be in Bologna (for work) for the month of October. We plan to take a very long weekend (6 days, 5 nights) in the middle of our time there for an excursion somewhere. The original thought was Sicily, but I have trouble getting excited about it. (I would be happy to be convinced otherwise.) Am now thinking of Slovenia (Ljulbjana, Bled, Bohinj) and Zagreb, but am worried that the weather may not be good then. We are preceding the month in Bologna with 10 days in Croatia; we'll see many of the major sights then, but won't have time for Zagreb then.

We've been to many places in Italy already on previous trips (Rome; Florence; Siena, Pisa; Sorrento, Amalfi Coast, Naples; Cinque Terre, Parma; Milan, Venice [though would like to visit again]) but are open to suggestions of places in Italy that we have not visited that would be nice in October. Am thinking of the lakes region in the north, Trieste, and San Marino as possibilities for other weekends or day trips. Would welcome opinions about those too.

We like walking/hiking, bicycling, nice scenery, quaint towns, flora and fauna, culture, and museums. Are not particular into ruins and beaches (which is why I'm having trouble getting enthusiastic about Sicily).

Thanks in advance for your replies.
