Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

Starting point for this hiking tour is Trieste, the former Habsburg 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 hike to Slovenia and Croatia in Istria. This sunny peninsula in the Mediterranean Sea is characterized by little picturesque fisher villages, small towns on the karst hills, vineyards and valleys. Let yourself surprise you from the charms of a landscape rich in contrasts and the various colours of Istria.

  
Characteristics of the route:

The hiking tour through Istria runs slightly hilly. The tour is suitable for children over 14 years.
We suggest this tour as a follow-up tour of our hiking tour “Alpe Adria Trail“ – from Cividale to Trieste.
