Visit Rijeka and Opatija with truffle hunting experience in Istria

Get to know Habsburg's port of Rijeka, Charming Opatija and Experience Gourmet Truffle Hunting, day tour from Zagreb

A day trip

Let’s get to the coast! Just two hours’ drive from Zagreb, yet another surprise awaits  – Rijeka!
Rijeka is Croatia’s third-largest city and a bustling blend of gritty 20th-century port and Italianate Habsburg grandeur. In spite of being a vital transport hub for the ships, it is a delight – charming and full of considerable cultural.

After the stop in Rijeka and stroll, we’ll descend to the coastal beauty of Croatia – Opatija, one of the oldest posh resorts in Europe. From Opatija, we shall continue to yet another splendid attraction of the region – the truffle hunting with one of the famous Istrian families, cherishing this tradition for generations in the Istrian town Buzet.

The cherry on the top will be a four-course meal after the truffle hunting!

Enjoy this fun and leisurely tour in the stunning sceneries of the beautiful Adriatic coastline and the rolling hills of the Istrian Peninsula. Definitely, a “must-tour” for every gourmet foodie!

    T&T travel boutique (Tihana) has organized a sailing boat trip for me and my five friends last June. The boat was great, skipper she found was the best we ever had (we sailed quite a few times in the past) and the itinerary she put together was excellent. Tihana was extremely helpful all the way through and we had an awesome trip! Needless to say, we shall go again with her agency!

    We recently were introduced to T&T Travel when we found ourselves in Croatia for a three week vacation with no travel plans. They quickly responded to our inquiries, met with us in Zagreb on very short notice, and crafted a travel itinerary with hotel reservations and tour suggestions. In hindsight, it was a perfect experience and T&T deserves all the credit for helping us understand and appreciate Croatia.
