Medieval Labin and the Artistry of Istria

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €90,26 EUR / Adult
OverviewHide
Embark on a stroll through Labin that'll transport you back to The Middle Ages and connect you with the talented artisans of today. It wasn't long ago that this was a coal-mining town, a past you'll explore in fascinating detail at local museum. Still, the greatest monuments in Labin are found in the form of Venetian palaces and Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque facades. Stroll through the town square before making your way into the artisan quarter. Here, you'll visit the Merania Art Workshop to meet some of Istria's finest potters and have the chance to try the age-old art yourself. Sip local wine and snack on ham and cheeses while you learn how superior ceramics, including tableware, lamps, murals, cookware and other items, are hand crafted using techniques passed down for generations. Pick up a remembrance to two before enjoying some free time to explore Labin on your own. This tour is provided by an operator that has been third-party certified to meet the Global Sustainable Tourism Council's Criteria for Tour Operators.
