Full description
Parenzana was a narrow gauge railway which connected Trieste with Porec, operating from 1902 until 1935. It was eliminated due to not being profitable and because cheaper and faster road transportation existed. Today the Parenzana route attracts many visitors during the year. With its nine tunnels, six bridges, viaducts and stations the route is ideal for everyone who wants to discover and get to know Istria.

Enjoy a hotel pick-up, and then head to Groznjan, a small Istrian town of great cultural heritage, in more recent history known as the “Town of Artists”. Then start your ride along Grožnjan’s narrow and cobbled streets.

Continue your route on Parenzana with a beautiful view over the Mirna valley. Through tunnels and bridges, the road will take you to Livade. Then cross the Mirna River to reach the other side of the valley and climb towards Motovun, one of the most popular Istrian medieval towns. Here you will enjoy lunch in a beautiful local tavern. Then enjoy a return transfer to your hotel.
