Istria is a large green peninsula, located at the head of the Adriatic, between the Gulf of Trieste and the Kvarner Gulf. Its chief city, the ancient port of Pula, sits on the tip of the peninsula. From here, you can sail up the sunny west coast, to Istria’s most popular seaside destinations, Rovinj and Poreč.
During your trip, also explore Inland Istria, a rural region of medieval-walled hilltowns, fertile vineyards, and olive groves. In addition, be sure to sample Istria’s gourmet specialty, truffles.
