Itinerary

We suggest a visit to the Euphrasian Basilica – listed as UNESCO World Heritage since 1997.

Today’s cycling day makes you explore the hinterland of Porec. First along the coast to the bathing resort Santa Marina di Vabriga and then to Vabriga. You leave the coast again and continue cycling in the inland to Visnjan and back to Porec.

Today you will cycle from Porec to the famous fjord-like Limski channel with its blue shimmering water. The Limski channel is a protected natural area and on its coasts you will find mussels- and oyster breeding. Through the inland you will get back to Porec.

You will reach the artistic village Groznjan today! Named the first time in 1102 it is today a meeting point for musicians from all over the world. During summer a lot of classical concerts with young musicians take place. In the second half of July you can join the festival “Jazz is back”. In the end of September artists meet each other for “Ex Tempore” - performing arts. From Groznjan you cycle passing Buje downhill to the Adriatic coast and along to Novigrad (in Italian Cittanova). This medieval town is surrounded by a defensive wall and is seated at the mouth of the river Mirna. On your way back you will pass the cave “Jama Baredine” – a dripstone cave, before reaching Porec again.

After a short transfer in the hinterland of Porec the first stop is Motovun, a formerly important strategic point of the Venetians, invulnerable on the top of a steep hill. You may surround this medieval town and enjoy the breath taking view on the surrounded hilly landscape, the sea and the Mirna valley. Along the Parenzana you continue your ride to Vizinada from where you will see once again the impressing town of Motovun before going back to Porec.

Today you will reach Rovinj, one of the most beautiful cities in Istria. Rovinj is surrounded in the west and the south west by the Adriatic Sea. Afar the high bell tower of the Euphemia Church built on the highest spot of Rovinj, greats you. Go ahead, if you would like to cycle to Zlatni rt (also known as Golden Cape), a peninsula, where you find a park in a nature reserve.

After a transfer to Kanfanar you cycle through wide woods in direction Pula. In Fazana you have the possibility to visit with one of the boats the Brijuni-islands. The Brijuni-islands are twelve smaller and 2 bigger islands; the main island Veli Brijun was used by the Yugoslav statesman Tito as summer residence. Today the islands are National Park and only Veli Brijun can be visited by the public. Continue your cycling trip to Pula, the biggest city of Istria. Famous for the antique places of interest like the amphitheatre!

Istrien Sternetour
Unsere erste Erfahrung mit Eurobike und auch Istrien. Beides hat uns begeistert, die Touren sind gut gewählt und führen durch sehenswerte Städte und Landschaften. Deshalb - es war viel zu besichtigen - waren wir auch überrascht, dass "die paar 50 km" 3/4 des Tages beanspruchten - wir hatten mit 2-3 Stunden gerechnet, sodass die Badezeit fast zu kurz kam. der lokale Tourbetreuer Marko ist sehr nett, hilfsbereit und guter Laune. Das Hotel liegt nahe dem Stadtzentrum und hat einen sehr schönen Strand - und ein sehr gemütliches Strandcafe! Gerne wieder! Ernst Bliem
