Embark on an exciting private day trip that takes you through three countries in just one day, starting from Opatija. Your adventure begins as our guide picks you up from your accommodation and drives you to the picturesque coastal town of Trieste in Italy, a city known for its rich history and diverse cultural influences. Your walking tour starts at the impressive Piazza Unita D’Italia, one of Italy’s finest squares, overlooking the Bay of Trieste, and concludes in the Theresian district. Afterward, you’ll have some free time to explore the city, renowned for its shopping and delightful Italian coffee.
Next, you’ll cross the border into Slovenia, traveling along a scenic coastal road to the photogenic town of Piran. This charming place has preserved its unique charm, and your guide will share its rich history and culture with you. You’ll have the opportunity to admire the main square, named after Piran’s most famous native, composer Giuseppe Tartini, who played a pivotal role in shaping the town’s cultural heritage. Piran boasts a beautiful square with a blend of Venetian Gothic and Austrian Neoclassical architectural styles.
From Piran, you’ll enjoy a short walk to the 16th-century parish church of San George, which offers spectacular views of three countries from its courtyard: Slovenia, Italy, and Croatia. After exploring Piran, you’ll have free time to discover the town on your own and savor a delicious lunch at one of the seafront restaurants, with recommendations from your guide.
In the afternoon, you’ll cross yet another border and head to Croatia, where you’ll conclude your day in the hilltop town of Grožnjan. This town is renowned as the “town of artists” and is filled with art galleries and small shops offering Istrian specialties such as truffles, fuži pasta, olive oil, and wine. During a short stroll, your guide will show you the highlights of this hidden gem in the breathtaking Istrian countryside.
Finally, you’ll return to your accommodation in Opatija, enriched with a unique and memorable cross-border experience.

Three countries in one day (SLO, IT, CRO) - February 2023
We booked the 3 countries/1 day tour from Ljubljana to Trieste, Italy; Piran, Slovania; Groznjan, Croatia. From start to finish our trip was amazing! Andrej texted me the day before our tour to confirm and make sure I had his cell # in case there were any issues. The tour is up to 8 people (Mercedes mini van) but due to traveling off season my teen daughter and I had a personal tour! I cannot say enough good things about this tour and Andrej. There are zero negatives (unless you consider my dismay that the tour we booked for tomorrow is not with Andrej). Andrej is a history buff and you can tell that he is passionate about informing his tours about the region. Being from America, he really viewed our tour from things we could relate to - comparing populations and sizes of countries to the US so we could visualize what he was explaining. The tour was the perfect balance of Andrej showing us the main sites in the towns and explaining options to us so we could explore our interests on our own. Book your trip you will not be disappointed! Thank you Andrej!!!

Superb 3 countries in 1 day! Great communication before the trip, via email, and a superb day trip with Stefan to Croatia, coast of Slovenia, Italy for ice cream! Informative, great knowledge on route and a truly memorable day trip! Remote Croatia, superb olive oil and truffles, coffee with such a view point! Piran, we ate our picnic and climbed St George’s tower for an amazing view, then paddled in the sea! Trieste for Italian ice cream! Thank you!

My husband and I visited Slovenia and Croatia with friends and spent an amazing day with Stefan after having corresponded with Andrej to modify our itinerary slightly. We had a great morning in Piran Slovenia and had lunch by the ocean. We then visited Grožnjan Croatia, and although many artists had not opened for the season, Stefan made sure we met the artists who were open and we learned about truffle hunting, brandy making and other artisan products. We also met an artist and toured his gallery while he told us about upcoming exhibit in Belgium he was preparing for. We were then taking to Kabola Winery, family run for over a century. We sat on the deck in the warm Istrian sun and sampled (and bought!) several wines. We wrapped up the day with a visit to the Butori Waterfall since we didn't get to Plitvice Lakes on this trip. I can't say enough about the service, attention to detail, the beauty of the area, or the overall experience. I highly recommend Slovenia4Seasons!

We chose the 3 countries in one day program. It was a very beautiful experience, Stefan our guide was amazing, excellent knowledge of the history and the place. It satisfied our every desire. We felt like we went on an excursion with a friend. Among the positive aspects of the excursion is the agency's flexibility in modifying the program. The car is very comfortable.

We had a one day trip including Trieste , Piran and Groznan, three countries in a day. Istria is a wonderful landscape. Our guide gave us an insight not only about some touristic highlights but also a historical introduction about Balkan. It was very interesting and more than I expected before. I really enjoyed and thank you very much Andrej for the vine recommendation. Refosk was very tasty and convincing. Belgin Aksoy, Turkey

My family of 6 did the 3 country 1 day trip to Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. Andrej, our driver and guide, was very professional, but so friendly and nice. He was very patient with the two little ones in our group, and his knowledge of the history of the areas we visited was very impressive. We had a great day, and we highly recommended this tour and this company!

Five Stars for Three Countries in One Day My wife, daughter and I enjoyed the Three Countries in One Day tour with Stefan. He was an incredibly insightful and accommodating tour guide who made our entire day a tremendous experience. We loved the little artists town in Croatia, exploring Piran, and visiting Trieste. We highly recommend this tour, especially if you have Stefan as your tour guide.

Private tour of 3 countries in 1 day was worth the money Had private tour of 3 countries in 1 day, starting in Ljubljana and going to Italy, Piran, and Croatia. Wonderful experience! Each city was unique with stunning views. Andrej was our guide and he was wonderful about giving us plenty of personal time to explore and pointed out things that WE were interested in (after talking about our interests). Helped us find places to eat and had excellent suggestions for future places to go. Nice to be picked up and dropped off from our hotel. He was very friendly and accomodating and I will definitely recommend him to all my friends.
