Hello Fellow Travelers.
My husband and I took the best of the Adriatic tour so we have visited those parts of Slovenia. We will have two days and nights in Slovenia in July and they are centered around ancestral gravesite visits. My husband’s ancestors are buried near Maribor and Volcji Grad. We will be coming from Bologna and then plan to return to Venice for two nights to return home to the US. It’s a big out of the way loop, but we understand that.
So my question is, if you had two days between Italy and Maribor, where would you spend them? I initially resorted to Ljubljana and that’s not a bad choice, but we have been there before. Is there a wine region or mountain town that we are missing? We really loved Slovenia last time so it would be fun to visit somewhere we haven’t seen yet. Ideally we could stay somewhere both nights, but we’re open to moving. We will have a car.
Hvala in advance.
