No hucksters and quiet. The winding streets are a delight to stroll around. The shops, even though touristy, have more the feel of an arts and crafts fair, they display their wares in a more creative fashion. These shops stay open very late which makes it easy to walk around after dark.

The main street and all of its connected side streets are fun to explore. It really does feel like a quaint old town. In the main street there are a lot of gift shops and it can seem a little busy but it's still an enjoyable experience.

Rovinj is not a place for shopping, selection is limited and prices are quite high, even for food. Pekarna is bakery in croatian and Mlinar right in the center of shopping streets is the best choice with vast and fresh assortiment. Try a twisted baguette, excellent croissants with seasalt and herbs, small focaccias and calzones, strudels with cherries or sour... More

Lovely to walk in the (always shiny!!) cobbled streets - wander off the eaten track & you'll find really interesting side streets!

This is one of the main street which is joining main town with old town. This is the busiest tourist street with lots of souvenir shops, cafe's. In the night it looks beautiful.

Main street Carrera is bustling with people from all over the world, shops of all kinds, money exchanges and gellateria's (ice cream is perfect especially in Gellateria Italia, taste same as in Italy)!

The street itself is a good place for a walk, but there is just too many souveir shops and restaurants with lousy tourist menus.

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.
