MAY we go on holiday this month? Perhaps we're not the best when it comes to puns, but we're confident that we're the best at creating memory-making holidays and truly alternative trips.
Nestled between the Alps, the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain, Slovenia is green and diverse. Here, the Alps descend abruptly through thick forests to the reach Adriatic; it is possible to walk in snowy alpine fields in the morning and bathe in the warm coastal waters in the afternoon. Slovenia has everything to offer for a memorable holiday, whether you enjoy culture, heritage, sport or rest and relaxation. Explore the cultural Baroque capital, Ljubljana or opt to ski across the Julian Alps; enjoy regional foods and local wines or relax at a modern spa resort. Coastal Piran and Koper showcase Venetian influences and boast sumptuous seafood restaurants.
Languishing itself as a breakaway Caucasus state to the west of Georgia, Abkhazia is the place for modern travellers who dream of the golden age of exploration. Abkhazia is a combination like no other; here a society that has navigated a curious path through history also maintains the authentic air of a country completely untouched by western tourism – and it lies just beyond the eastern reaches of Europe. Join our May Group Tour to discover one of our newest destinations.
Visitors who joined Regent's very first small group tour to Albania in 1971 would barely recognise the country today. Discover a country of wild, natural beauty with dark, brooding mountains, a rugged, underdeveloped coastline and hills clad with olive trees, combining afternoons spent enjoying the cherry blossoms with crowd-free explorations of the museum cities of Berat and Gjirokastra in the warm May weather.
