Luxury Meets Local
Croatia has become one of the world’s hottest destinations for in-the-know travelers. So, it is no wonder that affluent Americans are discovering this gorgeous country in Southeastern Europe with breathtaking vistas along its mainland coast and from all of its 1,200 islands strung across the Adriatic Sea’s clear blue water. We are aware, however, that explorers cannot live on photo-ops alone.
Join us to experience an authentic side of Croatia most travelers never discover. Be the first of your friends to truly savor this tiny country with a five-star palate. Along the way, meet and dine with the farmers, vintners, truffle hunters, and fishermen who will act as guides on this gastronomic journey.
Here, where Croatia meets Tuscany, you’ll taste the world’s best local ingredients—fresh seafood, wine, olive oil, prosciutto, cheeses, and truffles—served with a dash of Italian influence. And after your gourmet odyssey, bring your loved ones back to a hero's welcome and to share your discovery.
Where is Istria?
The Istrian Peninsula -- or simply Istria -- hangs like a bunch of grapes into the Adriatic Sea between Italy and Croatia. Once a part of Italy (in fact locals speak both languages interchangeably), the region is often referred to as Croatia's Tuscany because of its landscape and gourmet prowess.
