On this half day trip you will visit three towns in an air conditioned van with up to 8 people per group uncovering stories and places that reach deep into the Istrian Cultural and Culinary Scene.
You start in the morning hours at your acccommodation (free pick-up & drop-off) with a scenic drive along villages and vineyards to Istria’s cultural centre Pula. Join the guided walking tour and visit the magnificent Amphitheatre. Beside ancient roman ruins you may also visit the vibrant food market with sweet fruits, organic cheese and delicious Prosciutto stands in your freetime. After Pula you head for Vodnjan – the town of unknown treasures. Before entering the town you will have a photo stop at the “Kažun Park” to see how istrian limestone is used to build traditional istrian stone houses. Become Indiana Jones and discover the prefectly preserved christian mummies in Saint Blasius church or taste your gourmet knowledge at the high-class olive oil tasting. Otherwise you can roam around and admire the Venetian Palaces hiding in the narrow alleys of Vodnjan. Next stop is in Bale – an old medieval castle turned into one of Istria’s most picturesque towns. Here you can optionally join lunch at a legendary jazz restaurant built inside an old stone palace or walk inside the ancient walls of Bale and discover medieval frescoes from the times of the Slavic Monks. The stones in Istria are full of stories. You just need someone to reveal them to you! Return is in the afternoon.
