Istria car and bike combination trip

Jump to last reply

I'm getting closer to a solid plan for an Istria visit. A few questions I have regarding bases and transportation:

Is Rovinj a good base for visiting the Motovun area with a car? Or is it really better to overnight in Motovun? Also, can we pick up a car in Rovinj or will we need to go to Pula to get one?

I'd love some feedback on my tentative plan. This Istria leg follows an Italy leg based around the F1 Grand Prix in Monza. We spend the first 5 days with another couple then break off and do our own thing. The first 5 days are pretty well fixed, it is the Istria portion that I'm still ironing out. Here goes:

08/31 Land in Bologna, 3 nights
09/03 Train to Milan, 2 nights

09/05 Train to Trieste, 3 nights including day trip to Ljubljana
09/08 Bike to Piran, 1 night
09/09 Bike to Umag, 1 night
09/10 Bike to Porec, 1 night
09/11 Bus to Rovinj, 3 nights including day trips to Motovun & Pula.
09/14 Drive to Zagreb, 1 night
09/15 Fly home

I'm thinking we'd like to pick up the car on the 12th, can we do this in Rovinj or will we need to go to Pula to get one?

Thoughts?
