Description

This tour will take you to a rich land known as „Istria”. Its position and climate make this region the perfect place to find a selection of divine olive oil, which is known throughout the world. The region was even proclaimed the best olive oil region in the world in both 2016 and 2017, which is a pretty darn good reason the first stop of this tour simply must be to meet the many times awarded olive oil producer who was able to make the most expansive olive oil in the entire world! To visit him is truly a privilege and a rare opportunity, as he’s not too big on sharing his secrets with just anyone! He will take us to his fantastic olive tree estate and show us what it is that makes his olive oil so quality and special. You will then have the opportunity to try some of his best olive oils and learn how to recognize a top quality product. The best part of the tasting, though, is that we will enjoy it out in nature, among the olive trees, with a stunning view which spans all the way to the Adriatic Sea.

After lunch in a local restaurant we will visit small, but charming Piran – a place that has been part of the great Venetian republic for centuries and was therefore influenced by Venetian architecture in all its splendour. We will start our tour on the highest point of Piran at the medieval fortress which offers breathtaking views of Italy, in clear weather even all the way to Venice. We will be slowly heading towards the central part of Piran and have a nice city tour with a visit at church of Saint George.
