Days 3-5: Lake Bled: Free time to explore the town of Bled and its beautiful surroundings. The Slovenian resort town of Bled nestles in the foothills of the Julian Alps along the emerald green waters of Lake Bled. A trip up to the 11th century Bled Castle will reward you with the finest view of Bled island, the town of Bled and of the wider countryside of the Gorenjska region.

Days 7-8:
Ljubljana: Two earthquakes have shaped the architectural beauty of the city. The first in 1511 destroyed most of the medieval city. The rebuilding of the city was under the instruction of only the finest Italian architects, many of whose ornate staircases, facades, churches, palaces and public buildings are still there for you to see today.  A second earthquake in 1895 resulted in the city's native son, Joze Plecnik, restyling large parts of the city in Neo-Classicist and Secessionist styles.

Make your own way to the railway station for the included journey by rail to Zagreb. (The train departs at either 0845 or 1445 and the journey time is approximately 2hrs 30mins.) On arrival in Zagreb make your own way to your hotel where you will spend 3 nights.

Days 10-11:
Zagreb: The Croatian capital is a glorious Austro-Hungarian city awash with churches, museums and art galleries. The city is divided into upper and lower areas, which in days gone by constituted two separate towns. Now united as one city, each part still retains peculiar characteristics. Standing in the middle of the two halves is the impressive main square, Trg Bana Jelacica. Gorni Grad, the upper town is the oldest part of the city and working your way through the winding cobbled streets is a joy. Climb the Lotrscak Tower, built in the 13th century to protect the city gates and reward yourself with spectacular views over the city.

Split: Croatia's second largest city sits under a dramatic mountain backdrop on a beautiful stretch of Adriatic coastline. With a history dating back to Roman times, Split offers an abundance of Roman ruins and Gothic and Baroque architecture.  The city is also, of course, an exuberant seaside town which perfectly blends the old with the new. Step inside Diocletian's magnificent palace dating back to 295 AD and be greeted by a mass of shops, restaurants, and bars.

Day 16:
Join the private transfer from your hotel to the airport for the return flight to the UK.
