Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea, and roughly three-fifths of the peninsula`s area belongs to Croatia. Much of this region was once ruled by Italy, and in many locales you will see bilingual Croatian and Italian street signs. Foodies and wine connoisseurs will be excited to go into the interior, where farm-to-table cuisine is king. You can find fresh truffles and various vintages along the coast as well, however, just steps from popular beaches and resort complexes. The largest city in Croatian Istria is Pula, home to the Pula Arena, perhaps the best-preserved Roman amphitheatre in the world. Other cities and towns of note include Rovinj, dominated by the Church of St. Euphemia; and Porec, home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Euphrasian Basilica.
