Details of the Istrian coast by bike trip

Good proposal for cycling through the three countries that form the Istria peninsula, the largest in the Adriatic Sea. 

The trip starts in Trieste (Italy), a beautiful town located on a surface of karst rocks north of the Adriatic Sea and near the border with Slovenia.

We cross the fabulous forests of Slovenia to cycle along the Croatian coast and get to know the fishing villages and hills by the sea up to Pula, a journey of contrasts!
