Istria Base

Istria Base


Not sure if my last post was submitted??

Anyway .... we are are looking at spending 4-5 days in the Istria region of Croatia - after reading the forums I'm still a little confused about the best place to use as a base in this area. Rovinj seems popular, but we are very wary of big, touristy, resort towns - much prefer more interesting places that are a bit quieter. Does anyone have any more suggestions???? We will have a car and after a few days will be heading to Zadar.

This could be too late now, not sure if you are still looking.

I've been to Istria many times, we usually use Pula as a base. It's honestly very lovely. It can be touristy, but it depends on the time of year you are visiting. If you are going there this month, there will probably not be many or any tourists! Rovinj is a short drive from Pula.
