The Basicalla should definitely be on your agenda & we had a walking tour so this was a big part of it. It's well preserved & there's nice interesting artifacts to see there. Also a lovely church inside.

You must see this 5c church for the history. You are taken back to the rule of Constantine and his reformation to Christianity. It's a beautiful place with peace and tranquility. Well worth a visit

A very old basilika with fantastic mosaics. On the ticket you get an easy to follow instruction of the things you see. Nice views from the bell-tower.

I'm no history buff and these sorts of places are more about photography to me, however this is pretty well preserved and offers great architecture, mosaics, history and fine views from the top of the bell tower. A rather unassuming place from the outside, but...More

Well preserved Roman remains, delightful baptistry with stunning beamed roof and sunken baptism pool. Good climb up belltower with panoramic views over Porec and island. Beautiful Church with elaborate but restrained decorations. Well worth 40,kn.
