For an extra-special day trip from Rovinj, head to Dvigrad, a fascinating abandoned medieval town in Istria's beautiful Lim Valley. Situated a few kilometres from the quaint village of Kanfanar and a 20-minute drive from the beaches of Rovinj, it's the perfect place to while away the afternoon in Istria's lush interior.
With a history dating back to prehistoric times, Dvigrad was once a thriving town with more than 200 homes, a medieval castle and the imposing St. Sophia Church. It was still inhabited right up until the early-18th Century, when the community was devastated by the plague. Visitors now come to wander its silent, cobbled streets, climb the rocky steps to the castle and peek into the old stone shells of eerie abandoned homes.
While there are few guesthouses and agriturismos in Istria's lush interior, many visitors to Dvigrad pick the bustling resort of Rovinj as their base. Regarded as Istria's jewel in the crown, Rovinj is an attractive Mediterranean town on the western coast. It forms part of the Rovinj archipelago of 14 islands which includes Sveta Katarina (Katarina Island) and Crveni Otok, known locally as Red Island. Still a working fishing port, Rovinj offers a daily ferry service to Venice, as well as pleasure boat tours to the islands.
Catering for a variety of budgets, Rovinj is a great choice for accommodation near Dvigrad. It offers a mix of cheap hotels, authentic B&Bs and modern apartment complexes, as well as a clutch of modern beach resorts boasting sweeping Adriatic views, chic restaurants and outdoor pools.
Some visitors to Rovinj opt to stay in the old town, a charming maze of quaint cobbled streets and piazzas dotted with lively bars, pavement cafes and authentic local bistros. Families and couples looking for the Croatian beach experience head to the outer shores and the white-pebble beaches which dot the peninsula.
Wherever you choose to stay on your visit to Dvigrad, let Expedia help choose the right accommodation for your perfect Istrian holiday.
