10:00AM You will meet Your professional personal guide at the lobby of Your Hotel for a 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 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.
