Croatia's Istrian Riviera

Travel by Coach

12days from
£1,549*per person

Overview

Croatia’s beautiful Istrian Riviera is home to stunning beaches, an unspoilt coastline and picturesque hilltop villages, making it the perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday. On this charming break we visit some of the highlights of this lovely northern corner of Croatia, an area with a strong Italian influence, including Pula with its fascinating Roman ruins, the hilltop majesty of historic Motovun and Opatija.

Itinerary

  • Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France on a bed and breakfast basis.
  • Travel onwards to our overnight hotel in Austria, with dinner included.
  • We continue our journey, stopping en-route in Udine in north-east Italy. The city boasts an impressive hilltop castle while in the central Piazza della Libertà there are beautiful Renaissance buildings to admire, including the pink and white marble palace; Loggia del Lionello. Later we cross the border into Croatia and check in to our hotel in Rabac, located on the eastern coast of Istria.
  • This morning we head out on an excursion to one of Croatia’s most striking destinations, Motovun. Uniquely located on the top of a hill and surrounded by endless views of the sun-soaked Mediterranean scenery, this pretty town has a mixture of architectural and cultural influences from the Celtic and Illyrian settlers who lived here throughout the centuries which is apparent in its winding streets, high walls and imposing medieval gates.
  • Spend your day at leisure in the hotel or the surrounding grounds.
  • Today we visit the lovely seafront city of Pula on the tip of the Istrian Peninsula. Known for its protected harbour, attractive beaches and well-preserved Roman amphitheatre, we learn more about the city on our guided walking tour before time at leisure.
  • We visit two of Istria’s highlights today. The small fishing village of Rovinj is our first point of call with its scenic old town standing proudly on a headland. Explore the cobbled streets and admire the beautiful views before we continue to Vrsar. Discover the atmospheric old town and the beautiful marina here, or the seafront promenade is perfect for a stroll.
  • Our excursion takes us to the beautiful coastal resort of Opatija. This colourful town exudes an easygoing sense of culture with its striking Villa Angiolina museum, iconic Maiden with the Seagull statue and stunning Lungomare promenade which offers exceptional views of the town and out to sea throughout its seven-mile length.
  • Spend your day at leisure in the hotel or the surrounding grounds.
  • We check out of our hotel and travel to our overnight hotel in Italy, stopping en-route in Padua. Located in northern Italy’s Veneto region, this university city’s biggest attraction is the Scrovegni Chapel, which boasts impressive frescoes by Giotto.
  • Travel to our overnight hotel in France, with a light evening meal included.
  • Continue to Calais for our return ferry home.
