  • Half-day excursion to Istrian hilltop towns
  • Discover streets full of numerous galleries in stonewall cities of many legends
  • Taste Istrian delicacies, wine and olive oil in Oprtalj


Join us on a half-day tour through the beauty of “Green Istria”, hidden from the touristic crowds in its lowlands encompassed by forests and hills. Legends says that not so long ago, in the valley of river Mirna, giants lived who were so tall and strong they could pass on stones from hand to hand to build numerous settlements on hills! A tour through Grožnjan and Oprtalj will unveil these legends and show you the pure and pristine nature of Istria.

Grožnjan, known as the city of artists, surrounded by green hills and a magical white soil with an interesting history, is rich in ancient churches, prehistoric finds, medieval castles, magnificent palaces and many other ancient buildings. Restoration recovered the past glory of the city and evokes the charm of its past.

Visit one of the 28 interesting ateliers of this town and stroll through the city art gallery, containing works by artists from all around the world. In the summer, all of Grožnjan becomes a stage on which renowned jazz and classical musicians alternate, as do many other artists whom have discovered the true joy of creation.

After Grožnjan we will visit the small town of Oprtalj, a very picturesque village on a hill in the northern Istria. This former fortified settlement is only accessible by a narrow plateau, going through the gateway of the village, which is the last fortified piece still visible. Every stone one-steps on emanates its historical spirit, each perfectly set in place to create a perfect picture, which, in its silence, enriches visitors of tales from the past.

Our stroll ends in a beautiful ambience of a local tavern where we shall have the pleasure of tasting indigenous Istrian delicacies!
