Meet your local guide at the hotel lobby for a private walking tour of the old town of Rovinj, only a short walk away from your hotel. Called “the most Mediterranean town” and one of the most “photogenic towns in Adriatic”, it is truly a delightful discovery. The Old Town rises up on a peninsula and is a witness to times gone by and the valuable accomplishments of its past artisans. The limited space led to the construction of narrow buildings, streets and small town squares. Once a fishing town, it now offers a warm Mediterranean setting to its visitors. The town was declared a cultural monument in 1963. Experience the sights of this magical town while strolling with your guide up narrow streets to the magnificent baroque church of St. Euphemia, the town’s most important monument. The church is hovering over the town and safeguarding the legend of the stone sarcophagus of Saint Euphemia, the patron saint of Rovinj. From the church plateau there is a spectacular view of the open sea and numerous islets in the distance. During your tour, you will also visit the unique eco – museum Batana House, dedicated to a small Rovinj wooden boat that every local family used to own. Your guide will tell you about the customs and culture of the local sea people and their lives. As a perfect ending of your visit, you will experience a batana ride along the rocky shores of Rovinj, illuminated only by an antique lantern. Enjoy the romantic ride with a glass of wine and experience in full the seductive beauty of this enticing town.
