Croatia’s stunning coastlines and architecture are no longer a well-kept secret.

 

Thousands of tourists flock to the country each year, making it the 15th most popular tourist destination worldwide.

 

This seven-day twin-centred itinerary is perfect for those who want to really immerse themselves in Croatian culture, but at the same time avoid some of the busier destinations like Dubrovnik.

 

This tour focuses on the coastal towns of Pula and Rovinj, located in the north of Croatia, on the Istrian peninsula.

 

Here you will discover the region’s Roman and Venetian heritage, explore ancient architecture and monuments, and enjoy spectacular coastal scenery around the clear Adriatic waters.

 

Pula is an ancient city with buildings dating back over 2000 years, set in a scenic hillside location.

 

Yet despite its ancient heritage it hosts various film and arts festivals throughout the summer, making it a place where the old and new collide.

 

Rovinj is a fishing town with an active port, and a network of cobbled streets leading to the hilltop church of St. Euphemia.

 

The town is surrounded by pebble beaches, picturesque bays and islands.

 

Note: A minimum of 2 people for each booking is required.
