Here are some ideas for day two: relax in the rural setting at Chiavalon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, explore the historical opulence of Kastel, delve into the distant past at Amphitheatre de Pula, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple Of Augustus, and finally admire the landmark architecture of Arco dei Sergi.
