What You Can Expect

Ljubljana Walking Tour with Ljubljana Castle Funicular Ride

Ljubljana Walking Tour

Meet your expert guide in the morning in the center of Ljubljana, at the stunning Baroque-era Town Hall. After an introduction, set off with your guide and the rest of the group for a day of exploring this charming and walkable city. Listen as your expert guide illuminates the sights with insightful history and commentary throughout the day.

Visit the bustling stalls offering local produce and bounties of flowers near the Cathedral of St Nicholas, as your guide informs you about Slovenia’s rich agricultural culture. Stroll over the Art Nouveau Dragon Bridge, named and modeled after the city’s mascot, the dragon. Continue along the river, to Prešernov trg Square, after which you’ll traverse the Triple Bridge, created by famed architect Jože Plečnik.

Next up, you’ll encounter Ribji trg Square. Here, you’ll learn about the city’s oldest architecture from your guide before continuing on to Old Town. Admire more Baroque facades as you walk through more popular squares taking a break in Novi trg Square, just after the Cobblers’ Bridge.

Pause at other local points of interest, like Church of the Knights of the Cross and Jože Plečnik's Križanke Summer Theatre. Cruise past the Roman ruin walls of Vegova ulica Street on your way to the tour’s crescendo: Ljubljana Castle. Soak in increasingly breathtaking views as ascend up the hill on a funicular ride. At the top, snap some photos of the skyline and choose if you want to go on an optional self-guided tour (additional expense). Make your way back down the hill in the funicular, to Krekov trg Square, where your tour ends.

Guide was very informative and excited about what he was doing. I have been on many walking tours in different cities and thought this one was one of the best. Not only is it about 2 hours, compared to 3 for most others, but you get to try some local food. Great!
