Visit salt pans, a truffle farm, wineries, fishing villages and so much more. Discover why Istria is considered one of the world’s leading producers of quality olive oil, eat mouth-watering, slow-cooked meat cooked Dalmatian-style under a metal bell, raise a glass of refosk (Slovenian wine) or slivovitz (plum brandy) with your small group, and shout ‘zivjeli!’ to the simple, home-style cuisine this region is famous for.
