The old town is quaint and lovely. Enjoy the Venetian influences, the magnificent views of the ocean and the charming shops and buildings on cobblestone streets.

A walk in the Old Town of Rovinj is just like walking in a small coastal village in Italy. It's atmospheric, romantic and just amazing! Don't miss the stroll up to the church on the hill with a good view of the area!

Old town is charming with its Venetian style houses and cobblestone streets. It is nice to wander around during the day and also at night. Don't miss the sunset from the port, each day from a different side of the "island".

We were on a small ship coastal cruise in Croatia, and this was our last stop. We had read that the town was like a small Venice without canals. Since Venice was our next stop, we did not find that too interesting. But though the Venetian influences are undeniable, the Old Town is a beautiful hilltop Renaissance community of its... More
