Know More about this tourYour driver will meet you at one of the selected hotels in either Pula or Medulin prior to 8:30am (time to be advised at reconfirmation). After boarding your air-conditioned coach and picking up other guests, your tour will begin as you travel back in time to explore the Istrian peninsula mid-morning.
First, you'll visit one of the most delightful hilltops villages in Istria - Bale, with its stoned streets winding around the hill. Then after spending about 45 minutes in Bale, you'll board your coach and head to Rovinj. Upon arrival, you'll discover the small city that is also known as 'Little Venice.' See all the tall townhouses set along cobblestone streets. This tiny seaside town looks like a mirror image of its Italian neighbor, only in miniature. You'll spend about 2.5 hours exploring the town and have some free time as well to explore.
Drive to Grinzi and see a local donkey who welcomes visitors. Here, you'll savor a tasty Istrian lunch lasting about 1-hour long.
Finally, you'll board your coach and travel to Porec - an old town built on a small peninsula. Spend about nearly 2 hours to explore the streets and learning about its history, which began more than 2,000 years ago. With this span of time, it makes this old city a cultural monument in itself. Walk the old streets Decumanus and Cardo Maximus, by the remains of Roman temples of Mars and Neptune. See a more important monument - the Euphrasian basilica, one of the most beautiful preserved monuments of early Byzantine art in the Mediterranean.
At the end of the tour at around 6pm, you'll depart Porec for Pula and Medulin with an expected return to your hotel by around 7pm.
