Motovun and Poreč

Motovun is a beautiful hillside town in Istria where we had a wonderful truffle tasting experience. This area is famous for truffle hunting.

From Motovun we headed to the coast to Poreč and parked on the side of the road and took a while to work out how to pay since the pay machine on the side of the road appeared to be playing up. In the end Jane installed the PayDo application and paid by that; this enabled paying by the hour and then extending (even for multiple days). This was particularly useful later in the trip in Zadar where our standard parking was roadside for days. 

The highlight of Poreč is the sixth century Euphrasian Basilica. 

We then headed back to Rovinj where we had a crazy amount of meat for dinner from a place just out of town, Konoba Tugurio, that had meat on a spit (there are lots of these around), where they had the fire going despite it being warm already.
