Rovinj

Italian vibes in Istria

On an egg-shaped peninsula with a tight huddle of pastel-coloured town houses reflected in the surrounding water like a watercolour painting, the Venetian-built town of Rovinj is outrageously beautiful. This is Istria’s chicest resort – an Italianate town of winding cobblestone alleyways, polished-stone piazzas and Venetian buildings with peeling wooden shutters.

Rovinj holidays hold plenty in store for gastronomy fans, who will adore its rustic trattorias and candle-lit, Michelin-starred restaurant. The gelato is some of the best you’ll find outside of Italy, so be sure to indulge in a scoop or two as you wander the town’s meandering backstreets. Boutique craft shops are hidden in alleyways, perfect for snagging a classy souvenir to take home, and a clutch of cool cafés and bars keep visitors topped up with coffee and cocktails. You can’t mention Rovinj without bringing up its beaches, which are wild, windswept and gorgeous. Whatever you’re looking for, holidays to Rovinj promise summer sun and a dose of exclusive Croatian lifestyle.

Your Rovinj questions, answered

Thanks to Istria’s incredible produce, the food on your table in Rovinj is likely to always be fresh and locally grown, caught or made. In particular, look out for the olive oil and fresh seafood.

Rovinj has plenty of five-star luxury, with a cluster of swanky hotels near the Zlatni Rt park forest, but there’s a wide range of affordable accommodation available, too.

Rovinj was once ruled by Italy, so the region has been heavily influenced by that. Schools teach Italian alongside Croatian, and the street signs are also bilingual.

Best things to do in Rovinj

Go island-hopping

Rovinj boasts a modest archipelago of islands – the nearest being Katarina Island and Crveni Otok (Red Island). They make pleasant and memorable getaways from the crowds.

Savour the seafood

Istrian gastronomy is starting to get the recognition that it deserves. As you’re on the coast, it’s worth indulging in classic Istrian dishes containing fantastically fresh seafood.

Wander the streets

Rovinj’s greatest assets are its pedestrianised centre and lattice of cobblestone streets. Once you’ve taken in the centre and the harbour, stroll to the wooded cape of Zlatni Rt.
