A stop-over in Opatija

This is the shortest blog post of all time but I felt that Opatija needed a shout out because it’s so darn cute! Opatija looks like a little romantic Italian city and as soon as I laid eyes on this gem I instantly regretted not spending a night.

What we did

First thing we did was grab a gelato and walk down the stunning seaside promenade.  We noticed that there are no real beaches in Opatija but little sheltered bays that you can walk down a couple steps to go for a dip.

P.S. Croatians love their speedos 

We found the stunning patio at  Restaurant Argonauli which overlooks the promenade. We had most amazing lunch ever.  It was absolutely delicious and the service was the best we received in Croatia.

Truffles are a culinary highlight of north-western Istria.  Personally I don’t even like mushrooms and I love anything to do with Truffles.  So you can’t use that excuse not to try it!

Okay done! Told you it was short!
