If you want to get to know all the charms of the Istrian interior, follow the truffle trail. Truffle trail is an international project of students from the University of Juril Dobril in Pula and the Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften. On the Truffle trail through six different stages that take you through the historical, cultural and natural sights of the Motovun forest and Lake Butoniga, you will get to know the places from Livade to Buzet. We would definitely suggest the fourth stage, which begins in Oprtalj and passes through the town of Livade and ends at the foot of Motovun. Link to: https://truffle-trail.eu/4-motovun-opratlj/
From the top gastronomic offer of Istrian specialties, stop by the place called Livade for top truffles, whose hunting season is currently underway, as well as the truffle fair, which will be held in Istria until November. Restaurant Zigante created a specific offer made exclusively of truffle dishes, so the rich menu will include various Istrian and contemporary specialties in creative combinations with black and white truffles. Guided tastings are only part of the offer of the Zigante restaurant. With the guidance of experienced truffle hunters, you can go on a famous truffle hunt in the Motovun forest.
