Short break, Trieste – Porec
From Italy over Slovenia to Croatia

Difficulty Level:
Duration: 5 days
Distance: 135 - 165 km
Landscape:

Start of this bicycle tour is Trieste, the former Habsburger seaport seated at the foothills of the karst. During the Roman Empire Trieste became a busy and rich port. After a few kilometres you leave Italy and cycle to Slovenia and Croatia. This sunny peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea is characterised by little picturesque fisher villages, small towns on the karst hills, vineyards and valleys. Let yourself be surprised by the charms of a landscape rich in contrasts and the various colours of Istria.

The bicycle route through Istria runs slightly hilly. Ideal in connection with our bicycle tours:
“From the Dolomites to Trieste” and “Alpe-Adria-Cycle Path – from Villach to Trieste”.

TRAVEL ITINERARY

5 days / 4 nights

Day 1

Individual arrival at the hotel in Trieste.

Day 2

(approx. 35 km or approx. 65 km, depending on the chosen option)

After a few kilometres you say goodbye to Italy. In Slovenia you cycle mostly on cycling paths through famous bathing resorts like Koper (Capodistria) and Izola (Isola d’Istria) to Piran (Pirano) or Portorož (Portorose), a spa town on the Slovenian Riviera. The longer version leads through „Val Rosandra“ in the back country.

Day 3

(approx. 35 - 60 km)

You pass the salt gardens of Sečovlje, where they produce sea salt on huge areas through natural evaporation, and afterwards you cross the border. You cycle through the Croatian part of Istria, the biggest peninsula of the Adria, slightly hilly to Umag, which historic centre was built on the relics of a Roman colony. Umag is well-known also for the ATP tournament – „Croatia Open“, held every year. Enjoy a sightseeing tour in the evening through the medieval town with its narrow alleys and the beautiful city tower.

Day 4

(approx. 20 - 40 km)

From Umag you cycle - slightly hilly – to Novigrad or Cittanova. This medieval town surrounded by a battlement wall is seated on the water mouth of Mirna. Then you cycle to Poreč, the most important coastal city on Istria’s west coast. We suggest visiting the Euphrasian Basilica, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

Day 5

Individual departure from Porec or possibility to extend your stay.
