Immerse yourself in the Istrian medieval story and learn about olive oil


This tour will give you a perfect idea of what south-western Istria is: medieval architecture, Venetian past, ancient frescoes and olive oil culture.
Rovinj is where we begin- a perfect introduction to what Istria is. Then, off we go to Bale. . . . as if forgotten by centuries of development, the village of Bale, or Valle in Italian, is one of the best preserved medieval settlements in southern Istria. It's only a fifteen-minute drive from Rovinj, but in the middle of summer when Rovinj becomes the place to be in Istria, Bale will seem worlds away to you.
Perched on a small hill overlooking a valley (hence, the name Vallis), serene and calm, as if inviting you for a stroll along its ancient cobbled streets.
To give our stone story a perfect addition- a stop at the Vodnjan kažuni site is a must. Because old Istria is not only fishing and trade- there is this important, rural aspect of our past being rediscoverd by the locals and appreciated by travelers.
Olive oil is king here, so we will learn.
