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

The Main Street and Rovinj was just beautiful, really enjoyed spending time there everyday, walking around, eating, drinking and enjoying the sights.

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.

Rovinj is magic. Little streets, market area, endless bars scattered all over the place and top quality restaurants. You are spoiled for choice. Bit of advise...don't pack any heels in your suitcase because those streets are not made for them.

I love pretty places like this - I could imagine it years ago just looking the same. Full of restaurants, shops and immaculately clean it is a must to visit. Not keen on the tattoo shop, but that's just me - cannot stand tattoos . We hired a car and visited other pretty hilltop villages as well as seaside villages... More

We were in Rovinj during the Salsa Festival -- what fun!! And what a safe and clean city -- totally amazed for the respect the people have for their city -- can't wait to go back.

You enter the old town through gateway arch bearing the Venetian winged lion of St Mark. Behind this is the main pedestrian street which winds it's way uphill to the cathedral of St Euphemia. Narrower streets lead off here which have shops and restaurants, a particular speciality is the lavender shops. The paving stones towards the cathedral are very smooth... More

The historic and well preserved street is a tourist joy where you can stroll along shiny and incredibility clean cobbled streets and enjoy the smell of foot, clink of wine glasses and chatter of dozens of nationalities.
