4.6
See how a variety of cultural influences shaped Porec Old Town over the course of nearly 2,000 years. Illyrians, Romans, Franks, Venetians, Austro-Hungarians, French, Italians, and Slavs took turns governing the city. Take in remnants of the Roman period in the main streets and in the central Forum. Explore the town's rich heritage in museums and galleries, hosted in private houses and palaces. At the Euphrasian Basilica, admire the mosaics, which are some of the finest examples of Byzantine art in the world. Look for the Marafor, the fragments of an ancient church built on the alleged spot of Saint Maurus's martyrdom.

Where to stay in Porec

Porec serves as one of Croatia's most visited seaside destinations, so advance booking is essential for all travelers visiting at peak season. The city's inventory of lodgings includes everything from five-star hotels with sea views and all the modern amenities you need, to simply furnished rooms in rural houses a short drive outside the city. If you want to stay anywhere near the city center, expect steep prices and few bargains. For a budget-friendly alternative, look for small hotels and self-catering apartments outside the central district.
