Exploring Croatia Holidays

Irresitable Istria

Istria is a must for foodies and often referred to as ‘the next Tuscany’. The world-famous Istria truffles, delicious local produce and native wines will tantalise your taste buds. We couldn’t get enough of the Malvazija, Istria’s most famous white wine. The region has wine roads and bike routes that open up the path to taste your way through the region.

Inland Istria is characterised by green hinterland, dotted with traditional stone villages and medieval hilltop towns. Protectively overlooking the surrounding olive groves and vineyards. On the coast, you’ll find colourful Mediterranean towns, Rovinj being the most well-known and with some of the best hotels in the region. The coast is wonderfully unspoilt. There are opportunities to enjoy rugged coastlines, forests, bays and caves around the Premantura peninsula, on the southern tip of Istria. As well as the Golden Cape forest park in Rovinj. Istria is home to the world’s most well-preserved Roman Amphitheatre, once a place where Gladiator’s fought their ferocious opponents, now a unique and spectacular setting for concerts and open-air events throughout the summer season.
