Croatia's Istrian Riviera

Croatia has never been as popular as it is now, in no small part due to the TV series Game of Thrones, which was filmed there. Fantastic scenery, a lovely climate and good value for money make it easy to see why it's become such an attractive holiday destination.

Croatia's beautiful Istrian Riviera is surrounded by more than 250 kilometres of coastline making it the perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday.

On this break, we visit some of the highlights of the area including Pula, with its lovely beaches, and fascinating Roman ruins as well as Poreč, an ancient Roman town.

Our included boat cruise gives us the chance to explore the coastline in style too, on what promises to be a wonderful getaway!
