Get a taste of traditional Slovenian cuisine with this guided tour through Ljubljana restaurants.

To turn this gourmet experience into week-long gastronomic endeavors, check out our Food and Wine Holidays Slovenia.
But if you just want to take a tour minus the food, you can do so at Walking Tour Ljubljana.
Our Food Tour Ljubljana includes 7 delicious tastings and 4 Slovenian wines. Among them, Istrian prosciutto and Slovenian cheese, Carnolian sausage, olive and pumpkin oli, dumplings “Idrijski žlikrofi”, a brilliant dessert “Prekmurska gibanica” and other tastings, but we really don’t want to give it all away.
We will be sampling food and wine at different locations along the way, some samples of food offer just a few bites, others a larger portion. Throughout the whole course of Food Tour Ljubljana, you will eat enough food that would equal a single meal.
As we walk from location to location to sample the food and wine, we will take enough breaks for architectural, cultural and historical insights of the city. Since we walk right through the old town, you get to see all the major attractions of Ljubljana.
As we walk through the old town of Ljubljana, we will stop at must-see attractions of our lovely capital and of course make delicious pit-stops for food tastings. Overall, from our starting location at Prešeren square, to our last location at Gornji trg, we will walk for about 650 m / 0.4 miat a leisurely pace. We will be sitting down for tastings at most locations, however, there will be some locations where we will be standing when tasting our delicacies.
