Discovering Istria’s inland gems

Draguc in Autumn - just one of Istria's inland gems

Top of my list of things to do in Istria is explore its beautiful inland villages, with their old stone houses. Most are still unspoilt by tourism: you’ll often have them almost to yourselves, and visiting is like stepping back in time to a sleepier world and a slower pace of life. There are...

Gorgeous street in Groznjan, Istria

This drive takes in some of Istria’s most stunning scenery, and its largest medieval hill towns: Motovun and Grožnjan.  In their day, all these hill-top villages were bustling towns; one even had a huge castle.  It basically involves visiting Istria’s two main and best known inland attractions, with a magnificent scenic drive between them and...

Limski Draga, Istria - the place for fresh mussels

It’s a trip through time: where some towns (Dvigrad) died, others flourished (Svetvincenat) and some even rose to great importance (Sveti Lovrec). Everywhere on this route is an unspoilt slice of history. Only 28 km long,...

Draguc in Autumn - one of Istria's inland gems

Authentic, rural Istria. This beautiful drive into the heart of Glagolitic Istria takes in woods, pastures, mountains and perfect stone villages. Sleepy and unspoilt, it’s a land the modern world has overlooked. You can cover this 30 km route in about 45 minutes, but I’d recommend taking a bit longer to stop off and...
