Rovinj travel packages
The heavenly heart of the Mediterranean. Rovinj's special romantic charm enchants travellers.
The star attraction of Croatia's Istrian peninsula, Rovinj is where Croatia meets Italy. It has delicious cuisine, beautiful architecture, and plentiful scenery. It is the perfect destination for a Croatian holiday. The Italian influence on Rovinj is hard to miss. Throughout the city you will find signs in both Croatian and Italian. Rovinj also goes by its Italian name, Rovigno. Part of the Republic of Venice for over 500 years, Rovinj's historic center is modeled on Venice. It even has a Venetian bell tower rising above it all. A maze of narrow cobblestone streets leads you to a picturesque harbor ringed by pastel houses. Rovinj has always been known as a city of fishermen and it still is an active fishing port. The surroundings of Rovinj are also spectacular. You'll find incredible nature, with plush green parks ideal for walking or biking. You can also explore an archipelago of 13 islands that's easy to get to from the center of Rovinj. When you are visiting Rovinj you'll see there's something for everyone. Enjoy your vacation swimming, relaxing on the beach, or hiking on the islands.
Rovinj is the ideal base for exploring the rest of the Istrian peninsula. The Italian atmosphere extends to other parts of the Istrian region. It boasts rolling hills covered by vineyards and olive groves. The nearby towns are famous too. Pula has an ancient arena. Porec has the amazing Euphrasius Basilica. Hilltop Motovun is the center of Istria's truffle hunting region. All are easy day trips from Rovinj, allowing visitors to capture the best of the region of Istria. Food and art lovers won't feel disappointed either. Rovinj's restaurants serve up cuisine capturing the area's best flavors. Meanwhile, you can see local artists' work in many of Rovinj's galleries.

Quaint, charming, romantic, clean, colorful, and rustic, Rovinj represents a perfect package. The people are extremely friendly, food cannot be better and you can truly indulge in its peaceful atmosphere.

Rovinj in a nutshell: Small and charming. I'm not a bike person, especially since I live in a hilly area, but in Rovinj it's a must. Grab a bike in the city center, then follow the coast. A perfect way to finish is to ride along the peninsula that leads to the church of St. Euphemia. Make a stop halfway down, and enjoy a spectacular sunset (over a glass of wine!).

Rovinj is charmingly picturesque, often quite touristy, and yet very real. It’s a town of fishermen, traditional taverns and exquisite gastronomy.

Things to do in Rovinj

Rovinj is an ideal base for striking out and exploring Istria. You can head down the coast to Pula and its Roman amphitheater, or head inland to see Motovun and Groznjan, two medieval hilltop towns that feed the "Istria is Croatia's Tuscany" feeling. You could do this on your own by rental car or take a private tour of the peninsula. Istria is known as the epicenter of truffles in Croatia and foodies shouldn't miss this chance to go on a hunt for these culinary gems, or learn to cook with them. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package or consider adding later.
