Histria Terra Magica and more...


Tour to Northern Istria - three Istrian Hilltowns: GroŽnjan, Motovun and Hum - smallest town in the world.
Beautiful scenic drive through most beautiful landscapes on Istrian Peninsula. - full-day tour

On this tour, I will take you on a magical journey to the most pictoresque part of Istria, that many people like to call "Croatian Tuscany" (???) or simply land of magic. . . Located in northern corner of peninsula it is a nice getaway from busy coastal places in the summer, with wide offer of exquisit local specialties: wine, olive oil, schnapss, liqueurs, and above all famous Istrian shroom truffles - tartufi. Tour also includes guided walking tour of three most interesting Hilltowns in Istria: Grožnjan - nowadays a busy musical summer place for artistic gatherings, Motovun - perhaps the best known old Venetian fort-town and Hum - "officially" the smallest town in the world.
Also, I will offer you tasting of delightful truffles right above there, and cheer you with local wine with utmost pleasure!. . .
