STARI GRAD, Rovinj
(4.8/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
Walk the main street of STARI GRAD and browse the many independent shops and art galleries. The area is the keeper of Illyrian, Roman, Byzantine, and Venetian heritage. Enter the narrow, cobbled alleyways, and step into the small squares full of medieval, Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque buildings and terraces. Small churches, monuments, old doors, and arches are tucked behind every corner. You may hear residents still speaking Istriot, a Romance language once widely used in this area. Head to the northern side of town to see the remains of the protective walls. Once you've worked up an appetite, enjoy a meal at one of the many restaurants. Put STARI GRAD into our Rovinj vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Rovinj.

  • Rovinj was one of our favorite towns out of the twelve we stay in on our vacation. Walking the streets of the old town is amazing down the different alleyways and then up to the church with the great ...  more »
  • Everything is closed, cold and blustery, indifferent service overall. If you're stuck for a place to eat, try Veli Joge for a hearty meal And fun environment. Then head south. 
  • If the large tourist flows are vorbeit, it is wonderful to stroll along the narrow streets, the old houses, the view from the cliffs to the sea through this beautiful city on the Adriatic Sea. Again just an experience.
