Meet your guide and driver at the hotel lobby for a private tour of the towns Groznjan and Porec – hidden gems of Istria. First you will visit Grožnjan, a 14th-century Venetian town known nowadays as Town of Artists. Since 1965, Grožnjan is an art colony, meeting point for numerous painters, sculptors and musicians. The mediaeval urban core has remained untouched, so you can enjoy the walk through narrow streets to the main town gate, Renaissance loggia and the baroque church with frescos. From the city walls, enjoy the breathtaking views on the Adriatic Sea and the Mirna Valley in this one-of-a-kind fairytale land. Then you will continue to Poreč – the former Roman colony with exceptionally rich and diverse cultural heritage. Your guide will take you for a walk through the orthogonal sets of streets, completely preserved from the Roman times. Enjoy the sights of Romanesque architecture with beautiful Venetian gothic palaces that will make your walk even more memorable. The most valuable monument is the Euphrasian Basilica, beyond a doubt a breathtaking sight. This early Christian cathedral from 6th century was made in the Byzantine style and called after Euphrasius, the Bishop of Poreč who commissioned it. The whole complex of Euphrasiana was entered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Afterwards your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
