Highlights on day trip to Venice from Ljubljana

  • Rialto Bridge, one of the most famous bridges in the world

Description of day trip to Venice

Venice - the Floating City. The city of water, masks, bridges and canals. Birthplace of New World explorer Marco Polo, the great lover Casanova and the enchanting Baroque composer Vivaldi. Set on 118 islands to form a whole, this is but a small taste of the illustrious history of the Queen of the Adriatic.

Starting from Ljubljana, the perfect hub for exploration of central Europe, we will arrive in the ancient city at around noon - a time so beautiful it was even captured in a painting. From then, we will embark on a tour across the many narrow bridges and canals to the most famous Venetian attractions: we will explore the vast St. Mark’s Square and its magnificent Basilica, stop at the Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs - the prison from which Casanova made his famous escape - and, of course, traverse The Grand Canal in a traditional Venetian gondola.

If in the end, the day seems too short, don’t worry - days in Venice always do. A city like her deserves more, but you can be sure she will give you as much in a day as you can take home - in experience, in souvenirs and certainly in memories.

Great option when in Ljubljana, Venice is so close to Slovenia.And u cannot miss Venice!It is good to have a guide in the streets and around and because of crowds, helps a lot.

Venice is sooooooo beautiful. A bit short stay, however gives a good taste of Venice without spending too much money. Cause you will :) The drive is quite long and bit boring on highways but was fun meanwhile in the van. Guide Simona gave us a lot of history info and a good insight into the floating city.

Me and my partner were very pleased with this tour. We ticked off off all the main sights and we were very happy that we had enough free time to buy all the pretty souvenirs for our family. Beautiful!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do we meet for the day trip?

There are 4 designated pickup and drop-off locations that we use in downtown Ljubljana (see the options when booking). Your driver will be driving between multiple pickup locations, so we kindly ask you to allow a 20-minute window for your pickup, although we will do our best to be there on time. In case you would like to be picked up / dropped off at a different location, we can accommodate that with a surcharge of 9€/booking.

Is there lunch at a restaurant or do I have to bring my own?

You have the option of both. We have a time slot reserved for lunch on each tour, always somewhere with (usually local) restaurants handy. That said, you can always pack your own picnic lunch and eat it wherever and whenever you like. This might sometimes even save time in order to fit a bit of extra sightseeing into your day.

How fit do I need to be for Ljubljana to Venice day trip?

The best thing about our day trips is that they can be tailored to your own level of fitness. Most of the tours are designed with different activities available, so the choice is entirely yours. Please consult the difficulty section under a specific day trip to see what the difficulty level of the tour and particular activity is.

I am travelling on a budget - what if I can’t afford all the extras?

Don’t worry. Our day trips are planned with everyone in mind. If you find an entrance fee too expensive, or you are unsure if you are willing to spend so much of your budget on entrance fees, our guides will always have some free alternatives ready for you. From taking a short hike and finding that perfect photo opportunity, to relaxing in a beautiful spot, we have got you covered.

Will I have some time to myself?

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

What should I wear for Venice day trip? Do I have to bring anything with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the day trip regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, the weather can change fairly quickly, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in. If you are visiting caves, please remember that the caves are cold in the summer, as the cave temperature is constant throughout the year.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note, that the places where we stop off at for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

How do the “extras” work?

There is so much to do in Slovenia, so we wanted to give you the option of choosing exactly how you would like to spend your time here. Which is why we have compiled a list of popular activities in the areas of your visit and categorized them as extras. Therefore, the choice of which and how many you would like to experience is entirely up to you. We set up some of the most popular activities in the areas of your visit and listed them as extras. The choice of how many and which you would like to do is entirely yours. When you arrive to a destination, such as Lake Bled, the itinerary always allows for any additional activities you might want to do, like visiting Bled Castle or taking a traditional boat ride to the island. You can book all of your chosen extras in advance. Your guide will confirm the bookings with you on the tour and make sure you know everything you need to know. It is always exciting when people come away from the same trip enriched by different adventures and can share and compare their experiences along with the tons of photos they have taken.
