Enjoy a day of visiting the main features of coastal and inland Istria. Join me in discovering the amazing history, culture and local life of the hilltop towns of Motovun, Groznjan and the beautiful coastal town of Poreč.<br><br>Learn about the differences of living on the coast vs hinterland, notice the differences in food, local customs and people. We will visit one of the main truffle producers so you can taste the magical ingredient that has marked the gastronomy of the Istrian hinterland.<br><br>Among the beautiful views of the land and the sea we are going to have lunch in a local inn (konoba) where the food comes directly from the owner's garden.<br><br>We are going to walk the ancient town of Poreč through its narrow cobbled-stone streets constructed by the Romans in the 1st century B. C.

We visited this charming little village in winter (January) when most of the shops and restaurants were closed. But still it was worth walking around its streets as this is one of the most charming old villages ever. You can feel its soul in their cobbled narrow streets and enjoy a breathtaking view all the way to the adriatic sea (especially fascinating just before sunset). It is very close to Motovun, Hum and other cute Istrian Vilages, so you visit them all in one day.

Cute little artisan village with many little shops selling both Croatian artefacts & lovely original art work. We talked to some artists selling their wares in their little shops & bought 2 original pieces.

I am hesitant about praising this place because it just means that more people will go there, which will spoil it. But I have to. It is one of the most magical places I have ever been: an unspoiled (if renovated) hill town, with narrow winding lanes, courtyards, and squares and great views. Now if only I could live there ...

We enjoyed visiting this gem of a hilltown while driving around inland Istria. We arrived around mid-day and it was already quite busy, managed to secure a parking spot just outside the walls (remember to pickup a parking ticket for 8kn from the automated mahine, and dispaly on your dashboard). We popped into a number of of little shops, art and craft studios etc. while wandering around the narrow cobblestoned lanes of Grozjnan. Very charming.

This was my first time to visit this scenic and amazing town of Grožnjan. And what a lovely surprise, a day of Ex Tempore ! Hundreds of artists, painters, creative persons all around and through every little charmy streets, it was incredible and wonderful. Grožnjan is often called the most artistic place in whole Istria, and you know what, it's a true. Local music everywhere, you can feel festivity and you feel very special... Wines, truffles, local products, even mandarines from Neretva, honey... Scenic town in a scenic surround !
