(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.
