Top Reasons To Go

  1. Roman ruins Take a walk through the Roman area in Pula, where you will find one of the world's biggest and best-preserved amphitheaters (in fact, the sixth-largest in the world).
  2. Fresh seafood Have dinner at one of Rovinj's elegant restaurants (Barba Danilo and Monte are among the city's finest dining establishments).
  3. Medieval hill towns A scenic drive through the medieval towns of Grožnjan and Motovun in the hilly interior is not to be missed; these are villages that time seems to have forgotten. Indulge in a wine or olive-oil tasting at Kabola, Cuj, or Chiavalon estates.
  4. Ancient churches Enjoy a tour of the amazing 6th-century Byzantine mosaics at St. Euphrasius Basilica in Poreč; St. Euphrasius is one of the best-preserved early Christian churches in Europe.
  5. Delicious gelato As in Italy, gelato is available everywhere in dozens of flavors all over Istria. Grab a cone and enjoy the early evening passeggiata, just like a local.
