It was a beautiful, quaint town, plenty of places to eat, the only thing the beaches were not sand they were stones and rocks, so a decent pair of beach shoes are a must, but that one little thing has not put us off.

Everything you want in a Mediterranean hill town ... narrow cobbled street / a dominating cathedral at the top / sea views all round / many buzzy cafes and restaurants top choose from / arty little shops and art galleries / and not too pricey either

Vodnjan is not as touristic as Rovinj or Pula, but for its history and reach cultural heritage worth to visit..especially if you have a local guide with little town "secrets".

A very quaint and picturesque old town that's really fun to wander around and soak in the atmosphere. Lots of neat little tourist shops. We walked along the harbor up to the church, climbed the tower, then wandered back through the town to the water.

The old town is lovely with cobbled streets and is very much like Italian places with red roofs and plenty of shade when the sun is at its hiottest
