One of the things the biggest Croatian peninsula Istria is most famous for are truffles. Black or white – they were always considered “diamonds of the kitchen”. Embark on an adventure trying to find one (or more) and taste various products that use them as an ingredient. Following the “hunt” visit Hum – worlds smallest city and taste variety of delicious “rakija” liquors.
Depart in the morning for our truffle hunt! We will drive towards Motovun forest, a “big truffle treasure chest”. But no man can open that chest without the help of a trained dog (or pig in some cases). We opted for a dog.
After we meet with one and his owner the hunt can start. With a little help of Goddess Fortuna, we will return form the woods with a few of those precious gems. Our host will also make sure we try some of the delicious products made of them and taste some of local “rakija” liquor.
Next destination: HUM! With only 18 houses, surrounded by walls and gates, guarding the ancient Croatian secrets, this little place preserves the medieval atmosphere and it is quite famous for being the smallest city in the world! Considering its size, the sightseeing won’t last long. Fortunately – over there we organized “rakija” tasting. Choose from over 30 different kinds of this famous liquor. Free time for lunch.
Prices are per person in EUR!
