Stunningly beautiful but, put quite simply, words and pictures cannot do justice to Croatia which we are delighted to feature again in our 2018 programme. The delightful Istrian Peninsula is the base for our Croatia holiday with its close geographical and historical ties to Italy. Italian influence is in evidence everywhere – the language, cuisine, culture – with one of the most popular excursions being the day trip to Venice by hydrofoil. Inland, there are rolling hills with forests and vines and pretty hilltop villages whilst the coastal resorts are a series of attractive bays and secluded inlets. Pula is a delight. It’s a fascinating mix of Roman history and contemporary Croatian life, there’s an impressive Roman amphitheatre and the sea is crystal clear, the fishing superb and there’s good shopping, excellent museums and art galleries.
Hotel Park Plaza Arena ★★★
Situated approximately 5 kms from Pula, set amidst pine trees and just 100m from a small beach and the crystal clear Adriatic Sea, the Park Plaza Arena is a modern hotel which has been completely renovated and offers guests comfortable accommodation in lovely surroundings. Close by is Verudela Avenue where there’s a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and a small supermarket. The hotel has 2 sea water swimming pools, a spa & wellness centre, reception lobby, a restaurant, lobby bar and complimentary wifi in all bedrooms and public rooms. All 175 rooms are well appointed, air-conditioned and have satellite TV, telephone, safety deposit box, minibar, tea & coffee facilities and a bathroom with sh/wc and a hairdryer. If you want relaxation in peaceful surroundings but with the bonus of having Pula nearby to explore and some really great excursions to enjoy (including Venice), then the Park Plaza Arena is tailor-made for you.
