1. Rovinj: Best of Old Town Guided Tour with Bell Tower Visit

Did you know that Rovinj was once an island? Have you heard of Croatian Atlantis? Did you know that prohibition and speakeasies existed in Rovinj centuries before those in the US? Where did the Croatian Titanic sink? Why does Santa Claus have a lot of work in Rovinj? Does Rovinj's patron saint work as a weather app? Is the Large Square really large? What do winged lions have to do with it all? These and many more questions will be answered on this unique Rovinj tour. The tour starts on the Trg Marsala Tita square and goes straight into the Old Town. While strolling the cobbled narrow streets and small squares you will learn the intriguing history of Rovinj, starting with its pirate origins followed by the Roman rule, through years of prosperity in the Venetian Republic, Austrian investments, and the brutal 20th century filled with fascism, communism, and wars. On our way, we will see all the must-see attractions, but also discover many hidden gems known only to locals. We will climb the highest tower in Istria - the St. Euphemia's Belltower, to be rewarded with breathtaking views. The visit to Rovinj wouldn't be complete without tasting the finest Istrian liqueur - Teranino, made in a family-owned distillery. Let us be your guides, and fall in love with Rovinj!

Meet your guide just outside the local farmers' market located in the lower town. Your guides will be a local person who was born in the city. Throughout the tour, they will present Rovinj in an authentic way and will be happy to answer all of your questions. Arrive at Valdibora Square, the first area people see when approaching Rovinj from the North. Find out exactly where the channel and respective bridge used to be. Discover how the channel was landfilled 1000 years ago, making Rovinj an island. Then, walk along Carera Street and get an idea of the wealth accumulated through trade in olive oil, fish, and wine in the 18th century. Stop at the waterfront, a must-see destination and the perfect spot for an Aperol Spritz. Navigate through the maze of cobbled streets towards the old Jewish Ghetto and stables area. Follow the ancient city walls to the top of the hill where the magnificent Saint Euphemia church watches over the city. End the tour here, the prime location to watch the best sunset in the Adriatic. By the end of the tour, know where locals buy their fruits and vegetables, where the best coffee is made, and where to find sublime cakes and gelato which will leave you breathless. Gain a local point of view on many topics - something that you won't be able to find in any guidebook.
