Motovun is one of Istria’s most beautiful and best-preserved medieval hilltop settlements. On arriving there it requires that you leave your car in a parking space at the bottom of the hill and then walking up to the town on a steep hill. If you stay overnight as we did, then you get a parking pass for a few euros that allows you to park halfway up to the town.
Sometimes when you travel you get a bit afraid that eventually you might cease to get marvelled by your next destination. Arriving in Motovun and looking through our apartment windows to absolutely spectacular views of the countryside, took our breath away. Definitely one of those “pinch me” moments.
