Since Weekend Media Festival is not the only reason why you should visit Rovinj we will continue this blog with other benefits of spending a luxury vacation in Rovinj regardless of the Weekend.

What are the best day trips from Rovinj?

Rovinj is situated on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula and it is easily reachable from western Europe. Furthermore, it is great as a base for one-day trips around the Istrian peninsula. Regarding the day trips from Rovinj, we can recommend you a day trip to Pula, or a boat trip to Brijuni islands or Lime bay (this is a boat ride along the north shores of Rovinj with swim stops).

As far as the boat tours are concerned you can also go dolphin watching as there are many dolphins in the area.

We have already written about a luxury vacation in Pula and the National Park Brijuni. Feel free to check the blogs if you are interested in these destinations.

What to do in Rovinj?

On the other hand, there is a lot to do in Rovinj as well.

Rovinj Old Town

In fact, Rovinj has the status of the most romantic town in Croatia with cobbled streets and houses in multiple colors. The Church of St. Euphemia is situated at the top of the hill in the Old Town. We recommend you climb the bell tower for views and selfies. Actually, this is one of the most photographed areas in Croatia. Check the photo below and you will understand why.

For those interested in history we recommend the Batana Eco-Museum. Batana is the traditional boat from the area. You can even book a tour on them and ride around the Old town.

Beaches of Rovinj

South of the Old town, there is the Lone bay with the pebble beach where you can catch the most romantic sunsets.

Where to eat and drink in Rovinj?

As far as the fine dining is concerned, our recommendation goes to the Monte Restaurant - the first Michelin star restaurant in Croatia with fresh ingredients, professional staff, and exquisite meals.

For drinks and entertainment, we can suggest several places:

  • We already mentioned the Mulini Beach Bar which is a trendy place with DJ music all day long.
  • The other is the Grand Park Hotel Rovinj’s bar. This is the place with the best view of the Old town.
  • Finally, there is the Adriatic Hotel with the best OId Town location and terrace.

Wine and Olive tasting

Hedonists should go wine or olive oil tasting to local wineries and farms in the hinterland. As you probably know, Istrian olive oil is the best in Croatia. For wine tasting, we can recommend Relais and Winery San Tommaso.
