Rovinj (Rovigno in Italian) is coastal Istria’s star attraction. While it can get overrun with tourists in summer, and residents have developed a sharp eye for maximising profits by upgrading hotels and restaurants to four-star status, it remains one of the last true Mediterranean fishing ports. Wooded hills and low-rise hotels surround the old town, which is webbed with steep cobbled streets and piazzas. The 14 islands of the Rovinj archipelago make for a pleasant afternoon away; the most popular are Sveta Katarina and Crveni Otok (Red Island), also known as Sveti Andrija. The old town is contained within an egg-shaped peninsula. About 1.5km south is the Punta Corrente Forest Park and the wooded cape of Zlatni Rt (Golden Cape), with its age-old oak and pine trees and several large hotels.
This former Venetian vassal state on the azure Adriatic has traditionally slipped into hibernation mode come winter. Yet in recent years, it’s attracted some attention as an off-season long weekend getaway. So you’ll find architects and designers from places like Vienna and Zagreb wandering the cobblestoned streets and ancient churches—relishing the sunshine, lack of crowds, and deep discounts. The sleek Hotel Lone, a member of Design Hotels, halves its rates in winter, with packages that include mini-massages for couples, in-room dining, and complimentary bottles of sparkling wine. Lone’s restaurant larders benefit from Istria’s truffle season—which sometimes lasts until February.
