The Teran route, named after the famous Istrian red wine, starts from the promenade in Rabac and leads you up the main road to Labin. There, on a 320m hill, a majestic old town full of charming Venetian buildings awaits you. Take a ride through the old town, peek into galleries, and check out the town’s churches. Follow G. Martinuzzi street to Fortica (lookout point), which offers a fantastic view of Rabac, the island of Cres, and Učka, the highest mountain in Istria. After taking a few unforgettable snapshots, coast back down to the old town and join the walking and cycling trail to Dubrova in the foothills. It will take you to a phenomenal sculpture park that has hosted the Mediterranean Sculptors’ Symposium every summer for over 40 years. Had enough of culture? Don’t worry, you will continue on from Nedešćina along a wine route to Sveti Martin, where you simply must stop to sample Istrian wines in a real 18th century country palace. Continuing on through Snašići, Becići and Vinež to Labin, a ride through Ripenda will bring you back to Gornji Rabac and the lively seaside promenade.
