“Nicest Spot in Istria”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

I went to Rovinj in June 2013 with my girlfriend, I didn't have big expectations but the old town impressed us, very narrow streets stones on the floor lots of artists shops and a nice view from Saint Eufemia. The city is pretty small but 1 hour strolling around is worthwhile. I have seen Pola and Porec but this is definitely the nicest spot for me. I fyou have the chance to go there at sunset you can take fantastic picture from the port with a great light.

“Idyllic town of Rovinj”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

A must - so many restaurants, a wonderful fruit market on the marina. Beautiful seafood and fresh fish. Take walking shoes with grips, many cobbled streets and they are extremely shiny cobbles!

very pleasant walk around the cobbled streets , stunning views, lovely to eat and drink over the sea, and not to expensive, and on the Saturday night there was traditional Italian band playing prompting couples dancing in the street

“One of the most magical places on earth”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We visited this town for two nights. Very charming, narrow streets, all made of Istrian stone which has the quality and feel of marble. Great seafood restaurants abound. The sunsets were amazing, especially with the old town as a backdrop. Very peaceful, even with the crowds. A very pleasant town to stroll around.
