Many shops open all around so there is lots to see/do/explore. Plenty of places to stop and have a coffee or beer and generally enjoy the town.

We took walks up and down this street filled with small shops and restaurants. Quite clean and well maintained, has shade against the bright and hot sunlight. The buildings around are small, but colorful and also charming. The kids liked it too.

Of course there are the usual souvenir junk shops etc. there are restaurants for every taste and budget but what is unique is that this is still an... More

The main street has lots of small shops, some admitedly selling the usual souvenirs but in between you can find some excellent bargains in shoes and bags in particular. There a great many cafe bars and restaurants and lots of gelato - lovely but not good for the waistline!

Beautiful street whose charm destroying countless shops with goods from China and copies of famous brands. Such shops often their wares hung on building facades and doors of their shops. Judging by the offer they probably all have the same owner. However, in the street you may notice more original hand made trade with a variety of jewelry, to clothes... More

Rovinj is just such an interesting place, with so many windy, twisting streets. There are lots of cafes here where you can buy delicious ice creams, and some really interesting gift and souvenir shops. You could spend many hours exploring the street, it's great.

This is a good place to get lost. There are many shops and galleries displaying their wares. Also many little cafes, bistros and the occasional serious restaurant among the twisting streets. You won't really get lost. Keep going up and you come out at St Euphemia. Keep going down and you come out at the Adriatic.
