Rovinj

Situated on the south-west of the peninsula and surrounded by 22 islands, the historic port of Rovinj is a popular resort. The rocky coast is dotted with pebble and gravel beaches, gently sloping into the sea, and there are regular boats from the harbour to the beaches on nearby islands. There is a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, and a real sense of history embodied in the architecture all around. Explore the meandering lanes and cobbled squares of the old town and climb the bell-tower of the church of St. Euphemia for wonderful views over the town and bay.

Rovinj - Food & Dining

Istrian cuisine is very natural and simple, taking key ingredients fresh from the land and sea. Around Rovijn, many dishes are prepared with the local wild plants, wine, vinegar and olive oil. If you want to sample something truly Istrian, try the prsut – a cured ham which all Istrian’s are proud of. The seafood is always fresh and delicious, and sample something rare and native – the Istrian truffle – usually used to flavour pasta and meat.
