Highlights and places of interest along the route:

Description:

Starting point of this hiking 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 hike to Slovenia and Istria. 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.

  
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.
