SloveniaSlovenia

This small nation, independent for only the last two decades, has much of what draws visitors to Europe, but without the crowds. 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.

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. 

What to wear

Since weather can be unpredictable and to be sure you are comfortable during your trip and prepared for all types of weather possibilities, we suggest that you carry a small folding umbrella and take with you a light jacket or sweater.  If you have two pairs of comfortable (broken in, not brand new) walking shoes, by all means, take both pairs.  Packing to dress in layers is a great way to prepare for a variety of weather conditions.  Finally, remember that comfort and convenience should dictate your wardrobe for the tour, and casual clothes are in order for most every occasion as you travel.

Money

The official currency in Slovenia is the Euro. The hotels, some stores and some restaurants will be able to accept major credit cards.  However, smaller stores, souvenir places and some art galleries will accept cash only in local currency, Euro or U.S. dollars. ATMs are available in most major cities. We highly recommend that you bring enough cash to cover incidental expenses as well as tips to the guides and drivers. 

Credit cards are the most convenient way to pay for items you purchase as you travel. Be sure to call your credit card providers to let them know you will be traveling abroad, the places you’ll be visiting, and the dates of your trip. This is important for your own protection.

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

Shopping

You will certainly have time for shopping, and the countries on this tour offer a great variety of goods to satisfy different tastes and price ranges. It is always a good idea to comparison-shop, and exercise the “buyer-beware” rule, just as you do at home. Be sure to inspect the merchandise before you leave the store. Most stores will not allow you to return or exchange purchased items.

Electricity & Power Adapters

230 volts. Standard plug F. You will need a voltage converter and plug adapter in order to use U.S. appliances. We recommend getting a universal adapter and converter kit. View more information about electrical standards around the world.

Photography

Cameras and video recorders are allowed almost everywhere in the countries visited on this tour, and in fact, you will want to take plenty of pictures of the magnificent panoramas you’ll encounter as you travel. Photography is generally permitted everywhere except at airports and military installations. Memory cards for digital cameras will also be readily available, especially in major cities.
