Start in the historic city of Bale, where you can take a stroll on its windy streets that circle around a local hill. After 45 minutes in Bale, proceed to Rovinj, known to locals as “Little Venice.” Spend 2.5 hours discovering Rovinj’s collection of tall townhouses and cobblestone streets, marveling at its similarities to Venice, its better-known Italian neighbor.

Following lunch, continue by coach to Porec, where you’ll have two hours to explore its ancient architecture. Learn about the town’s history dating back more than 2,000 years as you walk the timeless streets of Decumanus and Cardo Maximus. You’ll also get to visit the ruins of the former Roman temples dedicated to Neptune and Mars, and tour the Euphrasian basilica, an ancient monument built during the city’s Byzantine era.
At 6pm you’ll depart Porec and return to your hotel, arriving back in Pula and Medulin at 7pm.
