Full description
You cannot go wrong if you choose this guided walk around the historical city center combined with a visit to Ljubljana Castle. It includes all of Ljubljana's major sights and offers an insight into numerous interesting stories about life in Ljubljana from the past and present. The tour begins in front of the Town Hall, a building with a rich history now used as the seat of the City Municipality of Ljubljana. From the Town Hall and the Robba Fountain in front of it you will go on a walk around the historical city center during which you will learn about the history of all the city's major sights. The walk will take you across the Cobblers' Bridge and past the National and University Library and the Križanke Summer Theater to the Kongresni trg Square from where you will continue to Prešernov trg Square dominated by the Franciscan Church and connected to the Triple Bridge. Then, head further on to Plečnik's Market and the cathedral. Just a short walk from there is the bottom station of Ljubljana's funicular railway, which wil whisk you up 70 vertical meters in just a minute and bring you to Ljubljana Castle, the city's most prominent sight. The castle's outlook tower offers the most beautiful views of the city, while its interior houses several museum displays and other exhibitions including, among others, 'Slovenian History,' 'The Prison' and 'Virtual Castle.'

    Our guide Sylvia was very well informed about the history of Ljubljana & had excellent English language skills. She presented the historical & cultural facts in a lively & interesting manner & was engaging. Tour structure was well thought out, with a short break for a local snack at a restaurant, and ending at the Castle funicular, where Sylvia got us our tickets, which could be used then or at any other time. Good value & enjoyable tour.

    Guided walking tour & Funicular Ride to Ljubljana Castle

    The guided walking tour was a perfect way to see the most important sites of Ljubljana in a short period of time. The highlight was the Funicular ride to the castle. Our guide was very nice, helpful and informative. Also the short stop at a restaurant was wonderful, as we could try the local cuisine :) I can definitely recomend this tour!

    Nice introduction to Ljubljana

    This was an ideal way to get to know Ljubljana: historical facts, some tasty local snacks, and a nice sightseeing. The guide could explain it very well. Just a pity that the "cable car to the castle" part was no longer guided: we got the tickets and the guide disappeared.
