Cobbled marble street

A lot of history to take in, beautiful old buildings and architecture. Better than Venice which was only a boat trip away

The former main shopping street has shops which are closed on public holidays and Sundays and is not part of the old island town but lies east of the waterway separating the old town from the mainland.

They are lovely little shops, but be careful not to stop if your not buying as the owner appears from nowhere and pesters you, I like to browse and make up my own mind what I want to buy

Rovinj streets are romantic and beautiful. The when you are in this part of Istria, you can feel a strange mix between Italian and Croatian charms, which create their own atmosphere of peace and romance.

Such fresh produce and all of it offered by vendors who grow these offerings (or make the various things they sell). This would be an ideal place to put together a picnic (or light dinner). The universal language of pointing works well here. Remember, do not touch to produce (that is what they do, not the customer). It's an attractive... More

Spent a day in Rovinj and it was worth the early start to get there from our holiday base. Has pretty much everything you would want from a seaside town - quaint cobbled streets, great views, good beaches and plenty of places to eat. Good for shopping too. There are also a multitude of boat trips from the harbour though... More

Rovinj is such a small town that the Main street doesn't offer much worth buying. There are several shoeshops, but even the reduced prices are quite high and the models dated. If you want something more local Peko shoes are made in Slovenia, they are leather and good quality. I did my own shopping uptown on the second floor of... More

I have been to many places in Croatia and Rovinj is the nicest of all. It has beautiful, cozy narrow streets with wonderful pavement cafés. If you are interested in arts and history and like the busy towns it is a perfect place for you.
