More on Istria
Despite its relatively small size, the Istrian peninsula is divided by three states – Croatia, Italy and Slovenia, offering a diversity of coastal towns to discover on your holiday! The coast length is over 530 kilometres long, including islands, with the Adriatic Sea waters famously and enticingly blue. Find the perfect base for your Istria holiday adventures across the Travelopo portfolio of luxury villa and apartment rentals.
This beautiful heart-shaped peninsula is home to an array of pretty, hilltop villages; spectacular countryside scenery and pebbled shores to admire and historic attractions to explore under the sun.
History-lovers are sure to enjoy discovering the Pula Arena; an impressive amphitheatre in Istria’s largest city, dating back to the first century AD. Pula is also located close to the striking Brijuni National Park, a hidden paradise of islands offering breathtaking natural beauties and walks. The islands are separated from the west coast of the Istrian mainland by Fažana Channel – reachable by a 15 minutes-long scenic boat ride.
The seafront city of Pula, located beneath seven hills, is an excellent destination, known for its gorgeous beach-lined coast in particular. Discover the well-preserved Roman ruins; sample delicious local wine across its many bars, treat yourself in its buzzing boutiques and discover relaxing Pula Bay and its azure waters. And of course, holiday-foodies must sample the local cuisine here!
Istria is truly a gourmet destination, luring visitors to its wine, olive oil and truffle delights.
