Rovinj Croatia Cruise Port

Location:

Most ships will tender you to The Old harbor which is within walking distance to town.

The old town harbor is very picturesque.

Rovinj (Rovigno in Italian) is one of the last of the true Mediterranean fishing ports. Prayers for a good catch are sent forth at the massive Cathedral of St Euphemia, whose 60m tower dominates the peninsula.

Sightseeing:

For centuries has Rovinj been turned to the sea. It gets there its wealth, way of life, mentality, development and future. But this town has known how to preserve its nature and accept, at the same time, all the challenges of modern tourism.

All the Rovinj coast and the surrounding twenty-two islands and islets are a protected natural heritage.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

Do wear sensible shoes, the cobblestone streets are pretty ,but rather slippery and steep.

Nearby Places:

There’s an hourly ferry to the lovely and wooded Crveni otok (22KN return) and a frequent ferry to nearby Sveti Katarina (12KN return) from the same landing. These boats operate only from May to mid-October.

Shopping and Food:

Currency:

1 Euro = 7.50 Kuna.

Bear in mind that the Croatian kuna is not exchangeable outside Croatia so you'll either have to change it back into your home currency in Croatia or do some last minute shopping.

If you come to Croatia equipped with euros you can pay for most accommodation (hotels or private accommodation), excursions, plane tickets and car rentals in euros without getting ripped off on an exchange rate as most of these items are priced in euros anyway.
