Stay in Ljubljana and indulge in a holiday filled with experiences perfect for anyone who enjoys good food and drinks, appreciates traditional flavours and cuisine and wishes to broaden their horizons of European food culture.
Focusing on local produce, from fresh ingredients to Slovenian wines, we will aim to bring you closer to the Slovenian culture of street food and busy markets of Ljubljana as well as homemade cooking from under your very hands at a cooking class, where you will get the chance to prepare some traditional dishes.
Your flavoursome holiday includes special experiences each day, as you will get a peek into the only local gin distillery, tour the largest and oldest brewery in the city and enjoy a wine tasting, all with passionate guides to give you authentic local insight. Optionally, treat yourself with fine dining in some of the best restaurants in Ljubljana with food carefully prepared by local chefs of world renown and enjoy a unique rustic slow food experience by letting the fast pace of life dissolve on your plate with dishes prepared with love.
Get settled in Ljubljana, the capital that will instantly charm you with its numerous cafes, restaurants and great hang out spots. You will get to see all the most popular attractions on the walking tour through the old town, including the vibrant Central Market, where you will be able to immerse yourself in the city’s daily life and tastes. Weather permitting, we will make sure you get to experience the most popular event in Ljubljana - the Open Kitchen. A bustling array of different, including high-end restaurants, serves street food at the markets every Friday, as long as it is not raining.
* Food market - not included in the price. In case of rain, we will provide you with a choice of alternative restaurants.
What better way to get to know local cuisine than learning to make it yourself? On this day, we will organise a cooking workshop where you can be as involved as you’d like in preparing your own traditional Slovenian meal. After some “hard work”, there is nothing like a refreshing drink, so we will head to the only distillery in Ljubljana, where we will not only learn about their production but taste some of their delicious gin cocktails.
A visit to Ljubljana should include the ever popular Ljubljana Castle, but we will not go up there just for the views. It has some great exhibitions and even greater restaurants. You can opt for a culinary delight at one of the best restaurants in Ljubljana. In the afternoon, we will wrap things up with wine tasting and introduce you to the superb world of Slovenian wines.
Take it slow and easy just outside of Ljubljana at a great traditional restaurant and indulge in a slow food experience that will take your taste buds on a trip of a lifetime. We will take you there and leave you in the hands of creative chefs and their locally-sourced treasures and pick you up afterwards, your appetites sated with great culinary delights.
Brewing is another important part of Ljubljana’s history and what better way to experience it is to head to the largest brewery in town, where they offer a full experience with legendary stories, an exclusive visit of the active production and a beer tasting in the great atmosphere of their tap room.
