Visited Motovun and Groznjan but wished we had gone to Buzet instead of Motovun. First up you arrive at an overly priced car park. You pay a flat rate so you can stay all day but really you don't need much more than an hour...More

Definitely worth the walk up the hill to the citadel. Sad that since we visited last year the powers that be have installed shiny new turnstiles and are selling tickets- have they no soul?? But anyway, block them out of your mind and just cough...More

Having visited Motovun on numerous occasions I was horrified to see that greed seems to have overtaken the town council. Where once you could walk around the city walls for free, there are now turnstiles requiring you to purchase tickets to be able to enjoy...More

We were up here for a visit and food in the spectacular surroundings but if you really want to see all around walk the walls. Not as strenuous as walking up the hill to Motovun in the first place

Wall of Motovun is one of real example how is a city developed on top of a high hill. 277 meter-high hill gives you breathtaking views and opportunity to make beautiful pictures above the Mirna valley. Also we believe that Toscana has brother from another...More

We actually stayed at the top of Motovun for 3 nights. I was thrown off by how small and quiet it was at first, but we grew to really like it. It is very central to the wine region and a few coastal cities. At...More

Be sure to take the time to walk around Montovun on the old city walls. The views of the countryside and the red roofed buildings are spectacular!

Motovun is a beautiful medieval town in the hills of Istria. Be sure and take the walk around the walls to see the part of the city outside the walls and the gorgeous countryside. It is about a 10 minute walk.
