Your Itinerary

Villa Fiordalisa

Day 1 - Welcome to Pula

After a short 2.5 hour flight you’ve arrived in beautiful Istria. Collect your hire car from the airport and make your way to your luxury oasis. Arrive and settle in enjoying a leisurely time at your pool. Spend the evening dining alfresco on your terrace with a fully-fitted kitchen and BBQ equipment to whip up a delicious banquet. If you’d rather delegate the cooking – you are on holiday after all, we can arrange a private chef to create a mouth-watering menu for you.

Day 2 - Bikes and Beaches

After a leisurely breakfast, set off on bikes to explore the local area. We’ve included passes to the nearby Lanterna beach resort, so head towards the coast and enjoy the crystal-clear waters, pebble and sandy beaches, children’s play areas and bars.

Kayaking

Day 3 - Kayaks, Caves and Dinosaurs

Today, its time for a family adventure. You’re off to Cape Kamenjak, a beautiful rugged and unspoilt nature park at the tip of the Istrian Peninsula. Enjoy a day of paddling, swimming, leaping from the cliffs (if you dare) and hunting for Dinosaur footprints.

Pula Amphitheatre

Day 4 - Take a trip back in time to the Roman Era

Today you’ll set off on a journey to 27 BC on a private tour of Pula’s remarkable historic sites. Your private guide will lead you to the most intact amphitheatre in the world, once a setting where gladiators battled, now a unique entertainment venue. You’ll visit the Roman Temple of Augustus, the Arch of Sergii and other historic sites before descending beneath the surface to explore the underworld of tunnels, built for protection from WW1 air raids.
