Many people say that Istria is like Croatia in miniature because it has everything to offer. This is the heart shaped peninsula which has Italy to the west and Slovenia to the north. Istria has gorgeous rolling hills with wide fertile valleys, perfect for olive groves and vineyards. 

Pebble beaches in Istria are mostly of the smaller cove variety and there are plenty of rock platforms offering easy access into the sea. On the coast, Pula is well worth visiting for the awesome Roman amphitheatre. Hilltop villages including Motovun and Groznjan are not to be missed with their cobbled streets and fantastic views.

On the east coast of Istria, the beautiful hilltop village of Labin has free tours on some summer evenings as the area was once the home of coal mining and a visit to the museum and real coal mine is not to be missed!

A day trip by catamaran to Venice from Pula, Rovinj and Porec is easy as are day trips to Lake Bled and the famous Lipica stud near the Postojna caves in Slovenia meaning that if you have a holiday in Istria you can actually experience three countries during your holiday!
