Trip Summary

  • Trieste

    Trieste, Italy is a city at the crossroads. This important port town has passed through the hands of the Romans, the Venetians, the powerful Hapsburg monarchy (who poured money into it), and the Germans during WWII. In fact, it was only returned to Italy in 1954. Between land and sea, war and peace, it has developed a unique and vibrant culture that sits somewhere between Austrian, Italian, and Slovenian. Visit and explore the Castello Miramare, La Risiera di San Sabba, Piazza Unità d`Italia, Trieste Cathedral, Il Ghetto and The Synagogue of Trieste, Joyce and Svevo Museum, Canal Grande, La Grotta Gigante and so much more.

  • Slovenian Riviera

    The Slovenian Riviera (Slovenska obala) is a popular seaside tourist destination, and has been since the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when it was then referred to as the "Austrian Riviera". It consists of a mere 29 miles of coastline on the Gulf of Trieste, sandwiched between Italy and Croatia. The towns on the Slovenian Riviera, such as Koper, Piran, Portoroz, Strunjan, Izola, and Ankaran, all have considerable Italian influence, as the area was ruled by Italy for three decades in the 20th century. Perhaps the most popular beach in the country is Portoroz Beach, one of the few sandy ones along the coast. Whether you're looking for sun and sand, sightseeing, or yachting, the towns of the Slovenian Riviera have everything you're looking for, and many points of interest you never realized you needed to see. Visit and explore Portorož, Strunjan, Izola, Ankaran, Portorož Beach, Dragonja River, Praetorian Palace, Tartini Square, Strunjan Nature Reserve, and so much more.

  • Porec

    Porec, on the northern Istrian coast, is one of the most popular seaside resort towns in Croatia. It is situated on a small peninsula with the marina and the island of Sveti Nikola located to the west of town. The city is over 2,000 years old, and many remnants of the Roman castrum of Parentium are still available for tourists to see today, including two fully-preserved Roman streets, Decumanus Street and Cardo Maximus Street. Venetian influence is noteworthy, particularly in the Old Town, as a result of the Republic of Venice`s five-century rule of the city then called Parenzo. Porec`s most noteworthy sight is the Euphrasian Basilica, built in the Byzantine architectural style in the sixth century, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit and discover the great Decumanus Street, Cardo Maximus Street, Plava Laguna, Euphrasian Basilica, Marafor Square, Temple of Neptune, Sveti Nikola Island, Round Tower, Northern Tower, Pentagonal Tower, and so much more.

  • Rovinj

    Rovinj is one of the most picturesque Adriatic towns, a treasury of cultural and historical monuments. The Old Town is built on a headland which juts out into the sea, and at the top of the headland you can find the beautiful Baroque parish Church of St. Euphemia. While the Croats and the Italians (the latter of whom call this town Rovigno) are the dominant ethnic and linguistic groups who live in the area today, the area has been home to many groups of people dating all the way back to the Bronze Age. Rovinj also serves as a hub for those wishing to experience the scenic wonders of the 19 islands of the Rovinj archipelago, which sit just offshore, surrounded by beautiful turquoise waters. Visit and explore the Church of St. Euphemia, Rovinj Archipelago, Sveti Andrija Island, Lim Channel, Cuvi Beach, Grisia Street, Batana Eco-Museum, Koversada Naturist Camp, Lone Bay, Rovinj City Museum, Renaissance Bell and Clock Tower, and so much more.

  • Pula

    Pula is one of the oldest cities in Istria, having been settled since the Bronze Age over 3,000 years ago. The Romans, capitalizing on Pula's location on a safe harbor, quickly built the settlement into a cultural center called Pietas Julia. A number of beautifully-preserved Roman buildings survive and stand today. The best-preserved Roman monument in Croatia, the Pula Arena, is located here. Other noteworthy sights include the Temple of Augustus, the Gate of Hercules, and the Arch of the Sergii. Other sights include the Austrian-era Fort Bourguignon, the hill settlement of Nesactium, and Aquarium Pula, the largest aquarium in Croatia. Explore and discover the great Pula Arena, Arch of the Sergii, Temple of Augustus, Gate of Hercules, Hill Settlement of Nesactium, Aquarium Pula, Fort Bourguignon, Verudela Beach, Brijuni National Park, Pula Cathedral, Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria, and so much more.
