A baroque capital, vineyards, mountains, skiing, castles, forests, beaches, island resorts and traditional culture round out Slovenia, an easy, friendly place to visit that’s still off the beaten track.

Entry requirements

U.S. citizens must have a passport which is valid for at least 90 days after your return date, though we strongly recommend at least six months. U.S. passport holders do not need a visa to enter Italy for stays up to 90 days. See the U.S. Dept. of State website for more information.

If you do not hold a U.S. passport, you are responsible for obtaining any necessary visas and meeting all entry requirements. If a visa is required, we recommend using a fee-based visa service, such as our preferred provider VisaHQ.

Weather

The best months to visit Slovenia are between mid April to the end of October with average temps between 60-80° F during the day and 40-50° F at night. The summer months are an ideal time to visit with good chances of pleasant weather. Bring a sweater and a jacket for evenings all year-round. 

Tipping

Restaurants sometimes include a service charge in your bill, but it is customary to tip 10%. If your service is exceptional, you could tip as much as 15%. Tipping in taxis is not obligatory, either, but a tip of 1 euro or so is usually given to the driver.

Money

ATMs are available outside almost all banks.

Always notify your bank prior to departure to avoid any problems using your credit or debit card abroad.
