Rovinj was scenic, and our tour group stopped here in March. But the main attraction, theChurch of St. Euphemia, was closed, as was the bell tower. It was hard to find a restaurant or shop that was open; all we found were a couple of neighborhood bars. I like avoiding the tourist rush, but this was like a ghost town.... More

I visited Rovinj on a day-trip from nearby Porec, where I was staying on vacation. From the harbour, quite picturesque itself, you get a lovely view of the Old Town, rising gradually to quite a height, and dominated by the ancient church tower at the top, a feature of many of the older towns in northern Croatia. The climb to... More

Lovely cobblestone streets, many art "galleries" or ateliers usually open during tourist season, but not in February! Can't really give a better description, but the streets were picturesque!

Rovinj is a very quaint little city. Make sure you walk up the hill to the church and while you are walking up enjoy the the architecture of the homes. We stopped by the local market and purchased white and black truffle oil and black truffles in oil.

Step back in time and lose yourself in Rovinj's old town. A warren of little alleys and lanes, and a haven of delightful gift-shops, artists studios and tavernas to explore and enjoy. The view from the top at the Church square is just paradise on Earth, then come back down the alleyways and lanes of the other side. It's like... More

Such a lovely place! Cobbled streets, great local art, fabulous sunsets on the harbour, amazing restaurants and friendly people. Easy to get around and many things to see and do. There are also resorts close by for people who want to have some 'chill time' by a pool. A really good place to spend some time.
