Rovinj

Croatia
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 sailing, swimming, relaxing on the beach, or hiking on the islands.
Rovinj is the ideal base for exploring the rest of the Croatian 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.

What I love about Rovinj

Antonia

Adriatic Team Leader

Rovinj is one of the most romantic and charming places in Croatia! It is kind of artistic and unique. Rovinj is a city of colors and once there it will be clear to you why. It is hard to resist the charm of the old town of Rovinj and its cobbled small streets. Walking around the center and seeing all the small shops with handmade products and local artists creating their art in front of you is something special!

Where to stay in Rovinj

This pretty old seaside town is full of hotels, B&Bs, and apartments, but we have honed our selection to give you the pick of the very best. Stay in a cozy hotel or B&B in the center, or maybe an apartment with a sea view from its balcony. If you prefer more of a five star feel, then pick from either of the high-design hotels set on the edge of Zlatni Rt (Golden Cape) National Park. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
Charming B&B in Family Villa
This charming villa is filled with local experiences. Owners grow & serve their own fruits, veggies & olive oil. Free parking

Luxury Design Hotel
One of the most luxurious hotels, not just in Rovinj, but on the Adriatic, with an amazing location.

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" concept. 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. 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.
