After checking into our hotel, we will have some free time before we enjoy a welcome drink and welcome dinner.

After breakfast at our hotel we will meet our local guide and will have a walking tour of Opatija – a magnificent coastal town on the Adriatic Sea and a well-known 19th-century health resort, dotted with Habsburg-era villas. Our guided tour will take us through this beautiful town and its sights.

Today we will visit Pula town, best known for its many surviving ancient Roman buildings, the most famous of which is its 1st century amphitheatre. Known locally as Arena, it is the sixth largest amphitheatre in the world. One of the best-preserved amphitheatres from antiquity, Arena is still used today for summer film festivals.

Later we will learn about the oil production and taste 5 different extra virgin olive oils. Despite long tradition, Croatia is often overlooked as an olive oil-producing country. The quantity of olive oil it produces represents only a small drop compared to Spain, the world's largest producer. But Istria, which happens to be the Mediterranean's northern-most olive growing region, is now firmly on the olive map thanks to growing international recognition for its high-quality extra virgin olive oil.

In the afternoon we will return to Opatija.
