If you were to take the 2-hour hydrofoil boat directly across from Venice, you would reach the picturesque town of Rovinj, based of our Istria DMC. This region in North Western Croatia use to be a part of Italy, its influences still apparent in the towns, buildings, cuisine and language. Istria is a famous wine region and also known for their truffles, for which the town of Motovun currently holds the world record for the largest truffle.

GC is partnered with local hotel group Maistra who are poised to be the dominant supplier in the region. They just opened Monte Mulini, a brand new 5* property with their second 5* Lone opening in 2009 with its spacious conference facilities. Flight access to the region is very good with 4 airports in the surrounding area – Zagreb, Pula, Trieste & Venice. Inquire about our GC truffle hunt & race track programmes.
