What to do in Rovinj

The mountainous national park south of the harbor is a great place from which you can take photos of the old town, and considering the size and configuration of terrain, it is best to explore it on a mountain bike. You may rent them at various rental stands in the harbor, at a fairly affordable price. Majority of Rovinj hotels have their own bikes that you can use. It would take around 90 minutes down the coast (marked trail will eventually lead you through the residential area, so make sure your indicators are operable, for your own safety), or whole afternoon if you prefer to explore the more challenging and vertiginous inland trails, or if you just wish to make a detour and stop by some of the local vineyards. To refresh, you can stop at one of the numerous small rocky beaches, where you may often run into cyclists resting there, the gear off their backs and dipping their toes into Adriatic Sea - just have in mind that local nudists may have the same idea on their mind.

What to do in Rovinj

Be sure to put down in your itinerary a trip to the Zlatni rt (Golden cape) forest park. Only a 20 minute walk from the town center, this area is practicaly perfect for anyone who wishes to truly enjoy nature. Zlatni rt is a beautiful forest, reminiscent of some fairy tale forest. There are two must-see sights in the old town. Even an aimless walk will surely lead you to the 18th century St. Euphemia Cathedral , a baroque church located on the hill above the north-west corner of the town. Those who have some extra energy may climb the 60 meter tall Venetian style bell tower. The spectacular view from the top will definitely be worth the 15 kuna entrance fee.

Another landmark is the lively food marked near the harbour, where the stands offer local fruit, vegetables and other groceries. As it's higly unlikely that you came to Croatia to buy apples and oranges, you can go straight (but a bit disinterestedly, if you want to get a discount) toward the truffle retailers. Most of their products arrive from the woods nearby Motovun, 30 kilometers away, and they include oils, tapenades, chutney, honey and other strong and pungent products. Despite being located just down the road, their products are not at all affordable, and you will have to drive a hard bargain to score a jar of white truffles for less than 200 kuna.
