Admire the sun-dappled olive groves that make this place seem more Tuscan than Croatian, and tuck into a tasty Istrian lunch.
Travel back in time to the days when togas were all the rage. Pula is to Croatia what Rome is to Italy. There is no hiding the city's main attraction - an enormous Roman Amphitheatre. Wandering around the remnants of ancient history, you'll be able to picture gladiators fight in the blood-soaked dust. For an even more dramatic ambience, modern and less warlike gladiators will accompany you during your visit to the amphitheater. They will be happy to pose you for photos so you can capture this incredible visit.
After historical sightseeing, we will head to Rovinj, otherwise known as little Venice. From above, this tiny seaside town is crowned with 18th century Church of St. Euphemia and Venetian terracotta roofs. Step inside and you will discover narrow cobbled streets, a stunning line of colourful buildings, and camera worthy spots every way you look. On top of it all, you'll enjoy delicious Istrian cuisine.
Sounds like a perfect day out.
