A feast for the eyes, a feast for the palate
A distinct regional cuisine promoted Istria into gourmand heaven. Known around the world for its top-class truffles, wine, and olive oil, Istrian cuisine is a peculiar blend of coastal and inland menus that offer unforgettable gourmet escapes. Small, yet big when it comes to the experiences it offers, this peninsula is sometimes described as the blend of worlds. Lush inland forests and valleys are dotted with medieval citadels and quaint villages. The beautiful seashore is adorned with colorful historic towns overlooking the Adriatic expanse. Besides the modern traffic network, Istria boasts another one that is more suited to exploration and enjoyment. Countless kilometers of scenic wine and olive roads connect local producers that include small farms and world-renowned vineries alike. Treasuring many gastronomic delights, historic sites, and natural beauties, the winding roads of Istria are adventures in themselves, a feast for the eyes as much as they are a feast for the palate.
