Croatia Truffle Festival

Prized by epicureans for their flavour and scarcity, the elusive truffle is the rock star of the fungus world. And nobody celebrates this most exalted of tubers quite like Croatia, home to the annual Truffle Days Festival. Beginning on the island of Cres, our adventure here will introduce you to the idyllic seaside communities of Croatias Adriatic Coast and let you partake in a genuine truffle hunt with a professional tartufalo before delivering you to the culinary tuberpalooza itself in Livade. Dont forget to pack your appetite. (In fact, pack a spare, just in case.)




Porec, travel, holiday, beach, party, sea-view, Istria, beaches, watersports, adriatic, mediterranean, ATP tennis, truffles, Ferry, Venice, tartufi.Travel to Venice, one of the most beautiful cities of the world by the fastest boat on Adriatic, with Venezia lines. Approximately two and a half hours for the crossing. Daily sailings during the high summer months of July and August, less frequently in spring and autumn, (and no service in the winter months) this can be done as a day-trip or part of a travel itinary through the Adriatic.

All the towns of Istria from Trieste around the peninsula to the Opatija Riviera and Rijeka are easily reached making for lots of opportunities to explore farther afield.

Widening the range of excursions will bring the Plitvice Lakes, a woody mountainous region with a string of 16 lakes interconnected by streams and waterfalls.

The Brijuni archipelago; an attractive group of islands just off the coast near Pula and Rovinj.

In neighbouring Slovenia, take the underground train into Postojna Cave and visit the breathtaking Predjama Castle, then perhaps onto Lake Bled.

Go cruising in luxury sailing boats or vintage sailing ships along the Istrian coast and Northern shores of the Adriatic islands or further south to the Dalmatian coast, and even onto Greece!
