This is the perfect holiday cycling tour for lovers of sun, sea and history! Your journey begins in the lovely former Habsburg seaport town of Trieste, nestled in the foothills of the region.
Under the rule of the Austro Hungarian Empire, Trieste flourished as a busy and affluent port (4th largest in the empire), the remnants of which are still visible today in the main square and narrow streets. After your stay here, you will cycle southwards out of Italy, through Slovenia and into Croatia.
Your route will take you down the sunny Istrian Peninsula, through picturesque little fishing villages, small towns atop the hills, sparkling vineyards and fertile valleys. Let yourself be surprised by the charms of a landscape rich in contrast and colour.
