A unique experience in the Croatian region of Istria has been included on the list of world’s 25 tastiest autumn experiences by British newspaper, The Times.
The article, entitled 25 of the world’s tastiest autumn food experiences, was published in print on the first day of autumn and is also available online.
The author of the text, Richard Mellor, selected 25 destinations from all over the world and has offered them to The Times subscribers to choose from.
One experience in Istria, truffle hunting, was included on the list.
“While the classic, well-known places to participate in truffle hunting are France and Italy, author Richard Mellor reveals to readers another destination – something different and less explored – the enchanting Croatian peninsula – Istria! He invites readers to try their hand at hunting for black and white truffles on this heart-shaped peninsula – quite the same as those in Italy, but not as expensive,” the Istria Tourist Board said.
In addition to truffles, The Times emphasizes the top quality Istrian wine scene as an additional reason to visit.
The list also featured experiences in the UK, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Japan, the USA, France, Australia, Italy and Spain, where he suggests readers to go grape harvesting near Madrid.
He also recommends discovering young Austrian wines in the Wachau region, visiting the most charming Italian festival dedicated to chestnuts in Cuneo, as well as enjoying drinking hot chocolate by the canals in Amsterdam or tasting soul food in Helsinki.
