Motovun and Flavours of Istria

Like something out of a fairytale, Motovun is the sort of town you dream of eloping to. Your first stop of the morning is hilltop Motovun – a medieval monument in itself with views over the vineyards sprawling out below. Walk around the old town, soaking up an atmosphere that's both bohemian and old-world at the same time. Next, you'll continue towards our next stop, a distillery. Learn how they pick wild herbs and fruits on the slopes of the Ucka Mountains, process them and create delicacies like brandy, jams, cookies and chocolates. Then it's time to taste them.
