Wonders of Croatia

We had a superb trip, especially our week of cycling on the Istrian Peninsula. The Flores Cycling representative, Ilya executed flawlessly from our first night orientation with maps and bikes to his daily shuttle of luggage. All of our accommodations were comfortable and well situated - some were real gems. And the old Roman and Venetian port cities like Porec, Pula and Rovinj ,  together with all the little hilltop fortified towns like Groznjan, Buzet, Motovun were beautiful and captivating stops along the route. Our evening stay at Casa Romantica Parenzana near Buje was particularly memorable as we surrendered to the charm of our host’s head server who expertly led us through some local wines and gourmet foods (taran grape red wine, pasta dishes with truffles, grappa) without our ever looking at the wine list or menu – what a treat !
