Pula is the capital of Istria, the far north region of Croatia that borders Italy, and our starting point for this trip. A port city founded by the Romans in 46 B.C., Pula features remarkable ruins, such as Pula Arena, a well preserved Roman amphitheater where crowds of up to 20,000 once gathered to watch gladiators fight to the death and now hosts open-air concerts and film festivals. You'll also want to make time to wander Pula's indoor marketplace, which is where many locals still shop for their daily provisions and an architectural marvel: built out of iron and glass in 1903, it is an exquisite example of Secessionist architecture.
From Pula we'll sail south to Pomer, a former fishing village now known for its shallow waters, pebble beaches and dense pine forests. Spend time sunbathing, snorkeling and kite surfing, or wander into town to visit the Byzantine-era Church of St. John and ruins form ancient Roman settlements.
