“A walk through the past”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

What a great old town.!!Charming, nostalgic. The cobblestones are a sight to behold. They are soooo shiny, they look like they have been polished. We asked about them at our hotel. The receptionist did not know, but made a phone call and found out that they are special stones that comes from one particular area in Istria. The old town was not overly touristy, which was a real bonus for us.

“Wonderful holiday in Rovinj - staying at the Istra Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

I liked everything about this holiday...disliked that we had to go home after a week!! We loved the scenery and the lovely boat ride from the Istra Hotel - on the island - on to mainland and the town of Rovinj. Loved the park in the town...some amazing sights..scenery was beautiful. Didn't like the fact that it rained!!!

“too romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Even getting lost is romantic in Rovinj. The town is maybe more beautiful than Venice. Worth the detour to go there !

“Just romantic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The old town of Rovinj is one of the oldest towns on the west coast of Istra. It is full of visitors in summer, empty in winter. A lot of shops, bars and artists, close to everything, including a bus station, museums, port, etc.
