When you book car rental, Slovenia is yours for the taking. So where will you go first?
The attractive and lively capital city of Ljubljana is the perfect base for your driving tour of Slovenia. Whether you select one of the excellent hotels in the city and make day trips from your base, or use Ljubljana as a starting point for your tour of the nation, the central location and tourist amenities in Ljubljana will meet all of your holiday needs.
It takes just a little over an hour by road from Ljubljana to reach the small stretch of Slovenian coastline wedged between the borders of Italy and Croatia. Resorts such as Portoroz, Strunjan, Piran, Izola and Koper offer a unique alternative to neighbouring Italian and Croatian destinations on the dazzling Adriatic coast.
Driving north from Ljubljana, the mountains of the Gorenjska region are also just an hour away from the city, while Lake Bled is a mere 40-minute journey from the capital. Whatever the weather, this northern corner of Slovenia overwhelms visitors with raw natural beauty. From Bled's glass-like lake, in which the church island is reflected, to Triglav, the country's highest peak, there's no shortage of astonishing vistas and things to do amid this diverse terrain. You'll probably find that one day just isn't enough here.
Maribor is another popular destination in Slovenia, 90 minutes north-east of Ljubljana by road. The nation's second-largest city, Maribor is an alpine beauty. The ancient architecture and small-town charms of Maribor marry perfectly with its countryside setting and the area's vine-growing prowess. There's nothing finer here than sitting at the edge of the Drava River with a glass of something local and fruity.
