We spent our first 4 nights in Italy at Hotel NH Trieste. The experience wasn’t remarkable, but it was conveniently located near the train station, which was a plus.
Our Slovenia day trip ended with a visit to Ljubljana Castle in the evening. It is the landmark of the city which can be dated back to 11th century.
I enjoyed our only meal in Slovenia at Julija, a restaurant near the castle in downtown Ljubljana. I don’t think what I had is traditional Slovenian food, but it was decent nonetheless.
Predjama Castle was the first stop of our weekend road trip to Slovenia. It was built within a cave in south-central Slovenia.
Buffet Da Pepi in Trieste is famous for the various kinds of boiled pork and meat. This cuisine is one of the legacies of the Austrian influence from the past.
