Facilities

Rovinj, the Blue Pearl of the Adriatic, the city of romance and art, one of the most picturesque towns in the Mediterranean. Part of the Venetian Republic for over 500 years, the Old Town is perched on an elevated peninsula, surrounded by Venetian terracotta-roofed houses and crowned by the Church of St. Euphemy from the 18th century whose bell tower dominates the Rovinj silhouette. The cramped area of the former island dictated the appearance of the town that is characterized by high houses, narrow paved streets and small squares.

Old cobbled alleys in the Old Town invite visitors to walk around and explore colorful galleries and shops filled with local arts and crafts. In the open-air market visitors will find fresh groceries such as asparagus, olives, tomatoes, herbs and medicinal plants, figs and cheese. The Italian influence is much stronger here than anywhere else in Croatia and the main square is surrounded with lively cafes and restaurants spreading out all the way to the charming harbor filled with sailing and fishing boats.

After tour in Rovinj we'll visit Olive oil Producfing in Bale and Olive Groves in Vodnjan where the best olive oil comes from.
