Leaving Rovinj, we will ride across the southern tip of the Istrian Peninsula towards Matulji. From there we will follow the Croatian coastline for most of the day. Be prepared for a stunning ride – the scenery and twisty roads along the Adriatic Coast are absolutely breathtaking! We will stop at multiple viewpoints and visit several of the charming villages we pass.
For those who would like to enjoy some additional riding, there is an optional loop into the mountains after Senj, before continuing on the last stretch of the coastal road from Karlobag.
Our destination tonight is Zadar, best known for the Roman and Venetian ruins of its peninsular Old Town. An early afternoon arrival will allow time to explore a few of the Venetian gates found in the city walls.
According to movie producer/director Alfred Hitchcock, Zadar is the place with “the most beautiful sunset in the world”!
