10 days has proved the most popular trip length for people picking up in Slovenia as it gives a great mix of sites to see with relatively short drive times. It is a great way to explore Europe on a budget of both time and money, while still allowing you to see some of the worlds best cities and landscapes across Slovenia, Italy, France and England. Use this as a guide to plan you next adventure, and as always, we are on hand if you have any questions.

It is large enough to keep you busy but small enough to walk around and navigate easily. From the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore to the Ponte Vecchio and of course the original home of THAT David, there is so much to see and do that you won’t want to leave!
