Pula
Pula

Today an industrial port town and Istria's chief administrative center (pop. 58,000), as well as a major tourist destination, Pula became a Roman colony in the 1st century BC. This came about a century after the decisive defeat by the Romans, in 177 BC, of the nearby Histrian stronghold of Nesactium, prompting the Histrian king Epulon to plunge a sword into his chest lest he fall into the hands of the victors, who indeed conquered all of Istria.

Remains from Pula's ancient past have survived up to the present day: as you drive in on the coastal route toward its choice setting on a bay near the southern tip of the Istrian peninsula, the monumental Roman amphitheater blocks out the sky on your left. Under Venetian rule (1331–1797), Pula was architecturally neglected, even substantially dismantled. Many structures from the Roman era were pulled down, and stones and columns were carted off across the sea to Italy to be used for new buildings there. Pula's second great period of development took place in the late 19th century, under the Habsburgs, when it served as the chief base for the Imperial Austro-Hungarian Navy. Today it's as much working city as tourist town, where Roman ruins and Austro-Hungarian architecture serve as backdrop for the bustle of everyday life amid a bit of communist-era soot and socialist realism, too. James Joyce lived here for a short time, in 1904–05, before fleeing what he dismissed as a cultural backwater for Trieste. What's more, there are some outstanding restaurants and a number of pleasant family-run hotels, not to mention the nearby resort area of Verudela, where seaside tourism thrives in all its soothing, sunny sameness.

The Parenzana biking trail got its name from the famous railroad that connected Istria with the heartland of Austria-Hungary with Trieste in Italy. The railroad brought great prosperity to the local inhabitants and is still nostalgically admired by them today. The Parenzana Bike Trail was created to commemorate the extraordinary significance of this landmark and is also known today as the Trail of Health and Friendship because it connects three countries - Italy, Slovenia and Croatia.

It is precisely through this famous railroad that many nature lovers have gotten to know the uniqueness and beauty of Istria, Croatia. The diversity of plant and wildlife in the lush forests will take you back to another time and passages cut into massive rocks with deep chasms will remind you of nature's magnificence.

Discover the charm of Istria and enjoy a taste of this region's famous truffles during this half-day sight-seeing and tasting experience. After a walking tour in Motovun, guests will be transported to a local family's farmhouse to learn about, taste, and even hunt for truffles.


Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive to Motovun.

Motovun

The town of Motovun is situated at the top of the hill and is only accessible by local shuttle bus service (5 minutes ride - not exclusive to Silversea Cruises), which operates regularly. Unfortunately this is the only option as all other buses are not allowed to drive up the hill to the town for safety reasons.


An astonishing architectural landmark, this hilltop town has retained its Medieval feel along its narrow streets, and within its well-preserved, intact town walls. Many claim that Motovun is the most beautiful town in all of Istria. Upon arrival, take a walking tour past the Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance-style buildings en route to the main square, which is dominated by the 13-century belfry of St. Stephen's Church. See the lions as they stand guard over the town gates, and take in splendid views of the Mirna river valley below. Some free time is then made available to explore the village and browse the shops at your leisure.


Truffle Tasting and Hunt

Leaving Motovun by bus, guests will soon arrive at the village of Paladini, where the Karlic Family and their team of dogs will greet you at their farm. Your hosts will give an introduction to the process and history of truffle production in Istria and within their family. Guests will taste delicious truffle-infused products all prepared by the family, including Istrian cheese, honey, olive oil, and more. The highlight of the tasting is a live, interactive presentation of making the famous Istrian "fritaja," scrambled eggs with truffles, when you will also have the opportunity to join in the cooking!


Next, your hosts will take you on a truffle hunt in their own woods where they grow and harvest black truffles. All the truffles are practically undetectable to humans; however thanks to their strong scent and of course the well-trained dogs, guests will be able to experience the thrill of finding this elusive and valuable delicacy.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking, at times on inclines, and over uneven and cobblestone surfaces. The order of tour sequence may vary. Guests are advised to wear seasonal clothing, flat, walking shoes (suitable for walking through natural and rugged terrains) and sun protection. The season of the white truffle starts in October and lasts until the end of January. The season of the black truffle starts in May and lasts until November.
