Day 1
Entrancing Istria |

Your guide will meet you at the pier. Explore the interior of Istria - a very different landscape from its coast. Your first visit today is to the artist colony of Groznjan. This hilltop town was all but deserted after WWII until it was revitalized as a place for artists and musicians. Wander through the twisting streets, filled with local artisans, or take in an impromptu music or drama performance in the main square.

Ride through the rugged and hilly terrain to the medieval ruins of Motovun, which suddenly spring into view. Motovun is an excellent example of the ancient townships that dotted the Istrian peninsula. Trek up to the Medieval city that dates back to the 12th century, and has remained completely intact!

Visit Livade, the small village in the Istrian countryside famous for being one of the best-known truffle regions in Europe!

White Istrian truffles are among of the most expensive mushrooms in the world, and truffle harvesting is a local tradition in the interior of the Istrian peninsula.
