(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.

  • Wander through the narrow streets and feel the influence of previous occupants of all nationalities. A sensitive blend of ancient and modern 
  • Cobbled streets quaint shops restaurants and lovely square where entertainment in evenings at times. Very friendly town clean and feel very safe here 
  • We were on transit to Dubrovnik and made a stop in Porec. A very nice old town, with nice markets and small Croatian restaurants. The beach is not to compare with Krk or Dubrovnik but nevertheless Porec has its own charm. A full day trip I would recommend you anyway. You should take aufjedenfall boots, and a stroll along the beach, you can see the beautiful small fishing boat e, the sunset and you can make very nice photos.
