Istria in Autumn in the Mediterranean
In last weeks eddition of Guardian Travel, under the title Autumn in the Med, Istria is featured among other Medditeranean recommended destination. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Istria, a peninsula in the north of Croatia, enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate, which means autumn days will be comfortably warm but nights cooler, perfect if you want to get out and about exploring. The region’s vineyards come alive in autumn, as this is a time for picking malvasia, teran and muscat grapes. Wine trail excursions can take you to the best cellars in the region. It’s also the start of the truffle season, which is celebrated with the two-month-long Days of Truffles festival. This kicks off in Buzet on 12 September – where a giant omelette with more than 2,000 eggs and 10kg of truffles is prepared in a huge pan – and continues until 8 November with fairs, demos of truffle searching, tastings and auctions..
