Full description

Discover the medieval Istrian towns of Bale, Rovinj, and Vodnjan on a guided tour of southern Istria. Visit idyllic locations and marvel at spectacular scenery as you learn about the region's history from your guide.

Enjoy a convenient pickup and travel in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle as you journey through the peninsula's incredible landscapes. Your first stop of the day, the town of Bale.

One of Croatia's best-kept secrets, this stone town was built on a hill and is surrounded by seemingly endless olive groves and vineyards. Follow your guide down narrow, cobbled streets on a walking tour of this medieval gem before heading to your next stop, the coastal town of Rovinj.

Once a fishing port and today a tourist resort, Rovinj is considered one of the most photogenic towns in the Mediterranean. Wander its streets accompanied by your guide and learn about this idyllic seaside town.

After your walking tour, make the most of some free time and indulge in a delicious lunch at one of the local eateries. Fueled by your meal, hop back into the van and head to your next and final destination for the day, Vodnjan.

In Vodnjan, you'll stop at the local olive oil farm Chiavalon. This family farm specializes in growing olives and producing high-quality extra virgin olive oil. Take part in a guided tasting of the estate's award-winning oils. End your day with a comfortable return transfer.
