About Istria

Hunt for truffles, eat in some of the best restaurants in Croatia, and discover superb vintners as you explore Istria. Unmissable for its stunning countryside and gastronomy, this peninsula is awash in ancient hilltop towns such as the artists’ colony of Grozjnan and medieval Motovun, and steeped in Venetian history. Italian influence is everywhere, and many locals speak both languages. In Rovinj, admire the 18th-century Baroque Cathedral of St. Euphemia and walk through Balbi’s Arch to the harbor and its enticing restaurants and cafes. Take a walking tour of Pula and visit its 1st-century Roman amphitheater. As for those truffles, don’t overlook Livade, known for its white Istrian truffles, which are some of the most expensive mushrooms in the world. Take a boat ride out to the beautiful Brijuni Islands. Combine Istria with Slovenia, or Trieste, or with the south and the Dalmatian Coast for a truly spectacular Croatian vacation.

What's Unmissable

  • Experience truffle hunting with dogs
  • Learn how to paint your  frescoes
  • Dine in some of the best konobas in the country
