After passing through Smoljanci and Krmed you will reach the sea in Lim Bay. The road then leads through Flengi to the entrance to Vrsar where you will have the chance of enjoying the picturesque town contours and tasteful gourmet offer in the local restaurants, which offer fish as their main delicacy.

Funtana, Mugeba, Šušnjići, Sveti Lovreč and Kanfanar are just some of the interesting places that our itinerary touches.
