Description

10:00AM You will meet Your professional personal guide at the lobby of Your Hotel for Your half day sightseeing tour of Rovinj.

Rovinj is a unique town with its restricted area resulting in crowded houses, narrow streets and small squares, still untouched by modern urbanism. You will see the lower town, the upper town, the Carera street, one of the most picturesque on the Mediterranean, the Bridge Square, the Balbi Arch testifying to the Venetian presence through the centuries, the historical Montalbano street, artist's Grisia street, the imposing church of Saint Euphemia with the Saint's sarcophagus that miraculously approached Rovinj harbor in the 9th century.

Saint Euphemia Cathedral is one of the Rovinj’s most famous sights, the town’s showcase. This imposing church dominates the old town from its hilltop location in the middle of the peninsula. Built in 1736, it’s the largest baroque building in Istria, reflecting the 18th century period during which Rovinj was its most populous town.

After the tour of the city, together with Your guide You will continue on towards a small local winery for the wine tasting portion of Your tour.

San Tommaso Winery has a main house of 350 m² and secondary facilities with the total area of over 500 m². The main house is equipped with a large hall, a wine tasting facility, winery and a small ethnographic museum. In front of the Winery, there is a terrace where You can enjoy our gastronomic delicacies and high-quality wines in the warm Istrian sun, while enjoying a view over the intact nature.

Wines are kept in basements where You can feel the love and care with which they make them. The basement spreads over an area of 160 m², and wines mature in inox barrels with the total volume of 60 000 liters. After the maturing process is over, the wine is transferred into oak barrels where it is kept, to achieve its specific flavor or it is bottled. The pleasant atmosphere of the wine tasting facility offers You an opportunity to try all of the wines and to find out more about how they are made, to enjoy their rich and refreshing tastes, rich bouquet and harmony.

On the first floor above the great hall, there is a small ethnographic museum where the family keeps various object from being forgotten, objects that were used for winemaking in the old Istrian villages. Here You can find out all about these objects and their role in the process of making high-quality Istrian wines

Thanks to our Travel Advisor, Cate Caruso, we had the pleasure of working with an amazing team at Leonidas Travel Ltd. during our trip to Montenegro and Croatia in April/May 2018. Every personal driver, guide, and skipper was beyond friendly, knowledgeable, and very customer oriented. Throughout our stay we were well cared for - and we learned so much about the beautiful places we visited. The hand offs from one locale to the next were seamless - and recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend Leonidas Travel - and are so very thankful to Cate for partnering with such a wonderful and caring team of people!!

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

Travel review Leonidas

We had a terrific experience with Leonidas. They worked with us along with our Calgary travel agent and they were excellent. We had one hiccup on our trip and the team went over the top to have things sorted very very quickly and brilliantly. The service was excellent as were recommendations for tours, dining experiences and accomodations. Someone from the team is immediate to respond to emails or calls during the course of the vacation. Would use them again in an instant!!
