What to expect
On this day trip of eastern Slovenia we stop at Slovenske Konjice, a lovely little old town, and continue to the nearby Žiče, where we visit an old charterhouse, the first of its kind outside French and Italian borders. We stop at a wine grower’s farm where you can sample some wine right at the source. Maribor, one of the top attractions in Slovenia, is the home of the Old Vine, which, at 400 years old, is the oldest grapevine in the world, as marked in the Guinness book of records. A walk through the old town of Maribor, combined with some wine tasting, makes this trip a true highlight of your Slovenian tour.
