Rovinj Harbour forms the heart of the beautiful town of Rovinj. Around the little harbor, where tiny colored fishing boats bob gently, cobbled lanes are lined by Venetian-era houses. Soak up the tranquil atmosphere, admire the Old Town buildings and linger over a dinner of fresh seafood as you watch the sun set over the Adriatic Sea.
Rovinj is one of Istria’s top destinations, and rightly so. The character-filled peninsula has retained its old-world charm, mainly thanks to its bustling and still active fishing harbor. The old buildings, packed tightly together in the maze of lanes which lead down to the harbor, are a pastel-hued mishmash. In between you will find churches and squares galore. See an amazing panorama of the harbor from the 18th-century St. Euphemia Cathedral, a Baroque church on a hill overlooking the Old Town.
The harbor is one of the Mediterranean’s last real fishing ports. Every day the little wooden boats chug out into the open seas and return with the freshest catches. See the boats rising and falling on the gently sloshing sea when the day is over and the sun is setting. Yet Rovinj isn’t famous only for delicious fish and seafood. Truffles are highly prized here and many local chefs delight in creating Italian-inspired traditional meals that combine this flavorful ingredient with the fruits of the sea. Take a seat at one of the many harbor-side restaurants to enjoy incredible scenery and mouth-watering meals. Be sure to try the tagliatelli mare e monti (pasta with prawns and truffles).
Visit the food market, located within the harbor, to see stalls piled high with colorful fruit, vegetables and incredible truffles. The produce originates in the forests of Motovun and forms the basis of many delectable dishes and products.
