Istria, also called “Croatian Tuscany” is indeed a feast for all senses.. It is the largest peninsula of the Adriatic with a rich history of Italian, Austrian and Hungarian influence resulted in the most authentic gastro and wine region of Croatia.Its streams flow to the sea through deep valleys and gullies which bring to mind the ancient local myths about giants. Rolling hills overlook the fields and valleys with little towns perched on the peaks, recalling some old paintings. The view is splendid: white-topped mountains, lush wheat fields, plateaux, valleys, vineyards and olive groves on hillsides, and, finally the sea.Istria is full of interesting and enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches, the babble of a stream, the blossoming cherries. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.
