Lussino and the best things to see

Culture, sea, history, plants, food and wine and breathtaking views

After setting off to discover the island of Cres (here’s the article), my Croatian adventure continues in Lussino, an island connected to Cres by a bridge. It can also be reached by ferry from Pola, Zara or from Brestova if you pass through Cres – like I did –  to then drive to the dolphin…
