The tour starts at your accommodation and after an 1.5 hours driving the first stop is Opatija, often called the pearl of the Adriatic. Opatija is located at the edge of the Mediterranean, gently descending from the slopes of Mount Učka towards the coast of Kvarner Bay. Seize the opportunity to enjoy its beautiful architecture while having a cup of coffee or a slice of cake near one of its luxurious, well-tended parks and promenades.
After this break, continue your tour with a 15 min drive to Lovran, one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the whole Opatija Riviera. Explore the city’s old core and visit its romantic belfry, baroque houses and the St. Trinity Chapel (13th century) by the seaside and other historic monuments which make the antique and cultural value of Lovran, giving it a special atmosphere of an old and Mediterranean town.
When you are done with the walking tour you will be driven for about 40 min to Rijeka where you will visit the fortress of Trsat, built on the turn of the 12th and 13th century. You will learn about the long and interesting history of the castle which oversees the entire city of Rijeka, the administrative and cultural center of the Primorje-Gorski Kotar county and the third largest city in Croatia by number of inhabitants.
In the late afternoon after 1,5 hour driving, you will arrive back in Zagreb.
