As you pull into the port of Rovinj, the location of the picturesque old town is apparent. Sitting high on a hill, the cobbled streets of the walled old town has the appearance of a Venetian canal with its cafes and restaurants. It is the most Italian place in Croatia and the people, the signage, and the menus reflect that. Here above the newly built apartments and buildings at the foot of the old city you can watch fishermen bringing in their catch or mending their nets.
You start your tour with a walk to the foot of the old town and after some narration, you will walk the hill and take the steps to visit the Church of St. Euphemia for its history and its view of the bay. The hill looks imposing but it is only a 10 to 15 minute walk to reach the flatlands above.
After this short period of historical narration, you will head back to the pier and board a small boat. This panoramic boat ride will take you along the beautiful bay called the Lim Fjord or Lim Channel. This is a peculiar geographical formation that is 35 km. long and is a valley that was formed not by a glacier but by the river eroding ground on its way to the Adriatic Sea.
Now there is a 10 km. long estuary that you will pass with the steep beautiful hills on either side of you. Most likely this area has become a well-known estuary due to the fish and shellfish that are farmed here. You will meet a local producer that will explain how oysters are grown and harvested. Before you leave, you will enjoy an oyster tasting.
Return to the pier by boat after discovering the charm of the area.
