    Get picked up in the morning from select hotels in Pula or Medulin and travel aboard an air-conditioned coach to the Istrian Peninsula, where you’ll arrive around mid-morning.

    Start in the historic city of Bale, where you can take a stroll on its windy streets that circle around a local hill. After 45 minutes in Bale, proceed to Rovinj, known to locals as “Little Venice.” Spend 2.5 hours discovering Rovinj’s collection of tall townhouses and cobblestone streets, marveling at its similarities to Venice, its better-known Italian neighbor.

    Leave Rovinj and head to Grinzi, where you’ll meet friendly local donkey and partake in an Istrian-style lunch for one hour. Following lunch, continue by coach to Porec, where you’ll have two hours to explore its ancient architecture. Learn about the town’s history dating back more than 2,000 years as you walk the timeless streets of Decumanus and Cardo Maximus. You’ll also get to visit the ruins of the former Roman temples dedicated to Neptune and Mars, and tour the Euphrasian basilica, an ancient monument built during the city’s Byzantine era.

    At 6pm you’ll depart Porec and return to your hotel, arriving back in Pula and Medulin at 7pm.

    The actual trip was great, excellent guide and sights. Lunch was tasty but heavy stodgy food is not good in 33 degrees! Booking experience shocking - given different times, then told the trio didn’t exist - when the name of it had changed!

    Wow from start to finish. Even though a full day, pickup from 9:30and dropped off at hotel 7pm it didn't seem long. Lovely places to see and the English speaking guide was very informative. I really enjoyed the authentic meal in the little village plus the added local wine went down well. "Little Venice" was stunning and we had time to look around ourselves after the little guided tour. On a whole I would recommend this trip as very good value for money. Just remember to wear good footwear as can be slippy underfoot at times due to the ancient roads/paths/cobbles.

    Loved it! Fantastic day. Got to see some gorgeous parts of Istria. The tour was a good mix of information from the knowledgeable guide with free time to explore or grab a drink. Lunch was at a restaurant in a village. Excellent quality and an opportunity to try some typical istrian food.
