First stop will be in Stanjel – the jewel of the Karst region and the oldest town in the area is a picturesque Karst settlement, which is disposed in terraces towards the 363 m high hill. While walking through the narrow streets, the houses built in stone are telling you the story of stonemasons, who portrayed their experience of the Karst through stone. There is Ferrari garden which was projected by famous architect Maks Fabiani. Behind the walls of the castle you will try the fruits of the karst, ruby red wine called Teran and air-dried ham called prsut with its distinctive taste.

Then drive on to Goriška Brda, the beautiful region of low rounded hills in the western part of Slovenia bordering Italy. Orchards, vineyards and white churches on the top of the hills are a common characteristic of the surroundings architecture. Stop at the look out tower dominating the area before lunch at Belica winery and wine tasting in Goriška Brda Wine Cellar.
