Istrian town for your dream vacation
May 2021
One of the most beautiful old towns of the Croatian seaside, even in competition with Dubrovnik, I might say. Same charm, less crowded, more relaxed.
Lots of chic bars, tasty restaurants and boutiques of very creative artists.

This is a very cosy little city, has a lot of charm to it.
I especially loved the church up on the peak with the statue of St.Euphemia.

I recommend the visit!

Old town in Rovinj
Sep 2020 • Family
Old part of the town is really nice for a walk. We enjoyed the views from the top of St. Euphemia Church, and small streets on the hill.

We have been spending at least a few days for the last three years in Rovinj, as we enjoy Istria and it's easily reachable by car and offers lots of accommodation options.
From wherever you approach the city, you will marvel at the skyline of Rovinj, with its church at the highest point in the city, its building straight onto the sea, its cobblestone alleys and tiny shops selling local produces.
This year, because of covid, we tried not to wander too much in the old Town, as it gets super crowded and we thought it not very wise,but otherwise this old town is simply marvelous and worth exploring.
A must if you visit Rovinj, even if just for a day.

Great mixture of quaint architecture, art, little shops, cool bars and restaurants. And you can even go for a dip from the rocks.

A lovely little Venetian town
Aug 2020
We came over here on two separate evenings, parking to the north of the town by the sea and then walked south into the old town. You can take the scenic path via some narrow streets which opens up onto a panoramic view over the sea and then drops down into the old town via some snazzy restaurants and bars perched on the rocks. Or you can walk through/past a small market, short cut the panoramic path and enter the main part of the old town.

This lovely little town has many of the hallmarks of its ancient Venetian past. It is full of boutique type shops, hidden little alleyways and a plethora of bars and restaurants. You soon come to the waters edge and harbour where many small boat are tethered. There is also a good selection of boats offers dolphin watching tours, sunset tours as well as visits to the many neighbouring islands.

All in all a lively, bustling little place which has happily retained a lovely Mediterranean/Venetian character.

Wonderful little old town with beautiful narrow streets.

Interesting and exceptional things to do and see are at every step and every corner.

Make sure to check out the church at the top and enjoy the scenic view!
