Full description
The largest peninsula on the Adriatic Sea, Istria is known for its beautiful seaside towns and white pebbled beaches. Discover another side of the geographically diverse region on a tour of the peninsula's best inland spots.  Journey through green hills and lush vineyards to visit several medieval walled towns that boast astonishing views of nearby valleys, fields, and mountains. Stop first at the town of Grožnjan, home to a number of artist colonies. Stroll down the narrow streets of a town long occupied by foreign powers which today feels more Italian than Croatian. Continue on to Livade and taste the famous Istrian truffles. Then enjoy a sightseeing tour of Motovun, a captivating hilltop town that serves as a characteristic symbol of the Istrian interior. Admire the confluence of Romanesque, Gothic, and Renaissance styles and learn about the influence of the Venetian Empire on the region. Head towards Pazin and check out its impressive medieval castle before sitting down to enjoy some local cuisine.

Excellent from start to finish

Picked up exactly on time from Porec bus station on a modern and clean coach. The itinerary was excellent with visits to more than one hilltop village which we wanted to experience. As well as included guided tours there was plenty of free time to explore oneself. We were fortunate to have a brilliant guide who accompanied us for the whole tour. He was so knowledgable and made the trip so interesting. The final visit of the tour was to a secluded farmhouse which we were served with a three course included meal which was fantastic. I nearly forgot the truffle tasting we had at one of the stops. Everything was included in the original price, a tour one will never forget
