- Istria is a beautiful part of Croatia. Really enjoyed our visit, travelling around to different towns and seeing their way of life. Learning about their history was really interesting. Driving was easy because everywhere was so well signposted. Although tourist resorts like Rovinj and Motovun are lovely, we found that less known places like Pican and Grozjan a lot more interesting with their little galleries and cobbled streets.. Pula was lovely to visit with the harbour and the Amphitheatre. It also has an open top bus tour of the main sights. Would highly recommend a holiday to Croatia for all ages and will be going back but to a different area.
