Die Unterkunft war genial...
Wir waren mit einer Gruppe von Freunden in der Villa Zafferano. Die Unterkunft war genial und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Besitzer waren unglaublich nett und jederzeit erreichbar. Da wir einen Aktivurlaub gemacht haben und ein Pool im Garten ist, war uns die Nähe zum Meer nicht so wichtig und die Unterkunft war genau richtig für uns. (translation: We spent our holiday with friends in Villa Zafferano. The accomodation was awesome and we felt very comfortable. The owners were incredibly nice and always available. Since we had an active holiday and a pool in the garden, the proximity to the sea was not so important to us and the accomodation was just right.)

Rovinj in February sunshine
Rovinj is unquestionably the most picturesque of the medieval Venetian towns on the Adriatic. Every guide book features the colourful facades of the tightly packed houses that encircle this tiny peninsula with the cathedral of St Euphemia and its dominating 60 metre bell tower standing over the town. The harbour is tightly packed with local fishing boats and the cafes on the harbour front are the perfect place to relax. As you walk up the narrow cobbled roadways between the old stone houses every corner brings another scene that seems perfectly composed for a photograph; a glimpse into an ancient courtyard or the subtle fading paintwork on wooden shutters. Around one corner a lively konoba (bistro); around another a gallery with local craftwork. Rovinj has classy cocktail bars and smart restaurants overlooking the bay as well as simple pizzerias and bistros down side streets.
From the harbour there are excursions and taxi boats to nearby islands, notably Red Island, that are ideal for a day swimming and relaxing. There are also many beaches to choose from on the mainland shore. The "Blue Flag" beaches of Valalta and Villas Rubin and the beach in Lone Bay are amongst the most popular.

In the vicinity of Rovinj there are opportunities for tennis, paintball and rock climbing. Climbing is organised at Zlatni Rt on the coast and inland near the ruined fortified medieval town of Digrad in the Lim valley. The Lim estuary (Limski Kanal) is another place for a relaxing swim with excellent restaurants beside the beach.

Other coastal towns
Within easy reach of Rovinj are other attractive coastal town such as Vrsar and Porec. The inland hilltop town of central Istria such as Motovun and Groznjan are a short drive and provide a relaxing contrast to the coast with scenic landscapes, stunning views and many excellent restaurants.

Getting there. Rovinj is 40 km from Pula airport and 150 kilometres from Trieste airport in Italy. There are regular ferries from Venice to Rovinj making it an ideal destination to combine with a couple of days in Venice. But day trips to Venice are also possible.

Pula Airport

Pula Airport is 7km from Pula centre and 3km from the main motorway that runs the length of Istria.
