Visit Istria

Introduction

Istria, defined by rolling hillsides and a close proximity to the Adriatic, combines a taste of the Tuscan countryside with a beautiful azure coastline. With the makings of a diverse and exciting Croatia holiday destination, this is a region that still manages to hold onto its national heritage.

Istria, often considered to be the gastronomic capital of Croatia, has a diverse history that makes itself evident in the architecture of costal towns Porec, Rovinj and Pula, the latter which boasts a famous Roman amphitheatre.

If the sun-seeking mecca of Istria's coastal towns and beach complexes isn't for you, then explore further inland where the hillside retreat of Grožnjan and the atmospheric ruin of Dvigrad beckon.
