Buzet Travel Guide

Buzet Istria Croatia Travel Guide

Elevate your taste buds with some of nature’s most exclusive and expensive mushrooms in the ‘City of Truffles’, Buzet. Dogs scour the forests around this northwestern city for the world’s most highly prized truffles. In Buzet and Motovun, group truffle tours teach tourists about this prized chef’s ingredient and why it is so important to the area. Every September, celebration of the white truffle season brings fans from far and wide, through the end of the season in December. This pleasant city, shaped by ancient Roman settlements then refined by the Venetians, quietly invites exploration of its charming streets and historic buildings. The new part of the town sits at the base of the hill, but the short walk up is worth the effort. Rewards include a peaceful walk over ancient cobblestones, steeped in the history of the ages.
