Description

You will meet Your personal English speaking guide at the harbor for Your sightseeing tour of Rovinj. Today You will discover this city of marvelous cultural and historical heritage, rich spiritual culture and traditional identity.

Your sightseeing tour will begin with a stroll through the medieval old town with its narrow stone alleys and stairways worn from use over the centuries. You will be uplifted by the town’s squares surrounded by small and colorful houses. As early as in the 7th century, Rovinj was surrounded by city walls that were subsequently strengthened by towers. The city had seven gates, three of which have been preserved to this day: The Gate of St. Benedict, The Portica and The Gate of the Holy Cross. It is easy to get yourself lost in Rovinj because of the many streets labyrinth, but have no fear because everything is just a ten minute walk away from the main square. You will also pass through the most famous street in town – the Grisia Street. At the top of this dense maze, stands the church of St. Euphemia, the patron saint of the city. The church was built after a miraculous event, when in 800 the sarcophagus containing the body of the christian martyr Euphemia was brought into the city. The construction lasted 26 years and the large copper statue of St. Euphemia, was fixed so that it turns on its bearings around its axis by the strength of the wind.

After the sightseeing portion of the tour, You will continue to the well-known local winery of San Tommaso. Located in the quiet west Istrian village of Golas. This region has been known for grape farming and viticulture, which is evident from the Roman archaeological findings nearby. Wines are kept in basements where you can feel the love and care with which they are made. You will have an opportunity to taste their wines and to find out more about how they are made and to enjoy in the rich and refreshing bouquets.

Leonidas Travel worked effortlessly with our travel agent to help plan the most incredible honeymoon for me and my husband. I knew very little about Croatia before we decided to honeymoon there and now I am telling everyone it should be on the shortlist of "places to visit" for everyone... and I think Leonidas is to thank in large part. They helped put together a itinerary full of unique and educational culinary experiences and awe inspiring excursions. Every person we came into contact through via Leonidas, from hotel staff to tour providers to transportation and everything in between. Our entire trip was well planned, executed and communicated. It made our experience extremely enjoyable and we always felt well taken care of
