Select Croatia launches the Istria Experience, a new, highly customizable vacation package to discover one of the largest and most diverse regions in Croatia.

Istria is close enough to Italy to be a convenient addition to any trip, and it is a whole another world that travelers can discover, from the amazing food, to the stunning landscape and fascinating history.

Select Croatia ( is proud to introduce a novel vacation package to its portfolio, the Istria Experience, a five-day getaway from Venice dedicated to travelers who wish to lose themselves in superb cuisine, beautiful landscapes, medieval villages and the notable hospitality of Croatia’s hidden gem. In the past few years the region of Istria, located in the northern coast of Croatia and just a couple of hours away from Venice, gained a lot of attention from many notable travel media outlets for being both a gourmet paradise and a must-see destination for travel enthusiasts.

Select Croatia’s vacation experience unearths Istria’s multifaceted offerings - from the seaside towns of Umag, Rovinj, Porec, and Pula to the hillside hinterland with its black and white truffles. In addition to these fine delicacies, the region boasts other refined products such as high quality olive oil and excellent wines. Select Croatia’s Istria Experience begins with a two-hour private chauffeured transfer from Venice to Umag, a picturesque fishing village situated in the northwestern part of the region, for a stay in the luxurious five-star Melia Coral. The day after the arrival will be dedicated to the discovery of the historical towns of Pula, Rovinj, and Porec. The third day can be spent enjoying the amenities of the hotel or adjoining alluring excursions to the experience, and the final day is reserved for a truffle hunt in the hinterland of Istria. Following the last night at the Melia Coral, a private driver will escort travelers back to Venice.

“This is a great package for all those looking for something different as a pre- or post- cruise option from Venice or even the other parts of Croatia,” says Maja Gudelj, Director - Croatia & Mediterranean Yacht Charter. “Istria is close enough to Italy to be a convenient addition to any trip, and it is a whole another world that travelers can discover, from the amazing food enhanced by high-quality white and black truffles, to the stunning landscape and fascinating history. It is a region yet to be discovered and is an oasis of rich culture and peaceful landscapes in which to rest and relax for a few days.”

The package includes four nights at the Melia Coral, tours and tastings accompanied by certified English speaking guides, transfers from and to Venice with an English speaking driver, breakfast and dinner every night at The Melia Coral, and all entrance fees and taxes per itinerary.
