“lovely old bits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I liked the old part of town, sadly there isn't too much of it left, but lovely old venetian type facades and some very nice cafes and shops to browse round.

“Wonder old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Very Croatian and very old. Loads of character, nice people and cheap shops. The main street has houses from the 15th century so good for history seekers. Porec has a large number of bars and restaurants some of which attract large numbers of diners.

“Lovely safe place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Plenty of bars restaurants and nice see front. Food and drink a good price at present may change when they go into EU in July/ Aug. Would recommend the Torre Rotonda tower for a drink as good view of hotel from there. Also staff very friendly.
