Rovinj is the gem in Istria’s crown and attracts holidaymakers from all over Europe who want to enjoy one of the last true Mediterranean fishing ports.
The Saint Euphemia Church with its 60m high bell tower is well worth a visit and the wooded hills which surround the Old Town provide a perfect backdrop. Steep cobbled streets and squares are full of quirky shops and pavement cafes.
Visit the island museum which is housed in a 17th century Baroque palace.
Book an island excursion to Sveta Katarina and Crveni Otok for a change of scenery or visit the Punta Corrente Forest Park, about 1.5km south of the town.
The Rovinj coastline is dotted with rocky coves, perfect for snorkellers and scuba divers. Lone Bay is a 15 minute walk from the town and offers numerous small pebble and shingle beaches.
