Cycle through three countries on the Istrian Peninsula, starting in the Italian city of Trieste and tracing the west coast down through Slovenia to Croatia’s beaches and towns. Expect a few undulations and gravel paths along the way as you follow the Adriatic shoreline past ports, vineyards and karst hills, stopping to sightsee and sleep in fishing villages and historic towns. 

Riding southwards out of Italy, you’ll cycle the length of Slovenia’s tiny coastline. As you pedal across the border into Croatia there’s history at every turn. Cycling between each town, you’ll pass hilltop villages and see shimmering saltpans. You will finish in Porec with its UNESCO basilica.
