We left our car on the parking and took bus upside. A nice walk in the old city. We tried some truffle tasting. Very pittoresque. A must do on a half day in Istria.

Visited in early July. No crowds. Really beautiful spot. Compact with nice restaurants and galleries. Darijana Mocibobi is an excellent gallery with works by the owners husband and daughter. Recommend.
