Getting to Istria

Istria’s central European position makes it easily accessible. The most practical airport to arrive at is Pula, situated on the southern tip. Other airports close by are Trieste, Venice and Zagreb. Or ypou can arrive by train at Venice and then take a ferry.


The Istrian peninsula, located between the Venice lagoon and the Kvarner Bay in the northern Adriatic is very easy to get to and explore. The peninsula is less than 90km wide and 100km from north to south so exploring Istria requires a car. If you are not getting there with your own car then pick up a rent-a-car at the airport.


The three closest airports are between 1/2 hour and 2 hours drive from any point on the peninsula. It takes about an hour to drive and a half from top to bottom of the peninsula. The inland lanes are not busy which makes driving and exploring very easy. As you look at the map of the region you will notice a Y shaped artery, known as the” Istrian Y”, this is the main fast road stretching from north to south.

After app. 2 kilometeres you turn right to lead the sign Čendaki, where you follow the main road and on the first exit possible you turn right and follow the street where after cca. 500m, when you pass by wineyards, fruit and olive trees, the horizon opens, and you see the breathtaking view of the sea, and then you reach the destination; Villa Rošinjola.
