Travel 1½ hours via the scenic route through the hinterland of Istra en route to the historic town of Pula. Situated on the southernmost part of the Istrian Peninsula, Pula immerses you in 3,000 years of history. Its grand 1st-century amphitheatre, one of Pula's many surviving ancient Roman structures, ranks among the largest in the world.
On a 1½-hour walk through Pula, you'll wander down narrow streets, through flower-filled parks, and past a host of ancient buildings. You'll see notable landmarks, such as the Triumphal Arch of Sergius, constructed in 27 BC, the Twin Gates, which heralded the entrance to the city, the Temple of Augustus, built in honor of the 1st-century Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus; and the 6th-century Byzantine Basilica of Saint Maria Formosa.
Head to the Roman Amphitheatre -- an exceptionally well-preserved ancient monument, with its four side-towers and intact Roman architecture (27 BC - AD 68). It is one of the six largest Roman arenas in the world.

Sample the oil along with some local snacks. You'll have a chance to purchase the exceptional olive oil of the Chiavalon Family Estate if you wish.
