On the morning of the day of departure you and your fellow travellers will be picked up by our guide. Pick-up is available at hotels in Cities of Piran/Portoroz, Izola, Koper, Ljubljana and Bled. For hotels in other areas, pick-up can be arranged at an additional cost.We depart towards Eastern Slovenia and start our trip in Maribor, where we'll spend two hours getting to know the old city centre. But the oldest town core - the Lent - promises unforgettable experience: it will enchant you with the oldest vine in the world, the oldest living specimen on our planet of a noble grape vine that still bears grapes! With an age of over 400 years it is registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest vine in the world. Then we will drive to the parish of St. Peter and to St. Mary’s Church, where we will visit the very recently discovered catacombs. We'll walk up to the church following the famous Way of the Cross that leads past fourteen renovated chapels. From the last chapel, right on the top of the hill, a breathtaking view opens on the surrounding area. Afterwards, our journey will take us to a pleasant, homely ambient where you will be served traditionally prepared delicious domestic dishes. Lastly, we will stop at the Vinag Wine Cellars. Hidden underneath the centre of Maribor we find an oenophile’s wonderland. Built in 1847, the cellar is one of the largest and oldest classic wine cellars in Europe. It stretches some 2,5 km long underground tunnels, covers 20,000m² and is full of all manner of wine history. Wooden barrels and concrete tanks are everywhere you look. The speciality in the cellar is the wine archives, where more than 250.000 bottles of the best vintages are kept. Enjoy the rest of the late afternoon and evening as you wish after being dropped off at your hotel. Spend the night in Maribor.
