Rovinj ©
Istria's most popular coastal city, Rovinj blends a traditional fishing port with a modern seaside getaway.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Cuvi Beach and Main Street. Change things up with these side-trips from Rovinj: Kap Kamenjak (in Premantura) and Pula (Museum Olei Histriae & MEMO Museum Pula). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Spiaggia Isola rossa, Rovigno, kick back and relax at Mulini Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of St. Euphemia, and experience rural life at Stancija Collis.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Rovinj road trip site .

You can do a combination of taxi and bus from Motovun to Rovinj in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive. In July in Rovinj, expect temperatures between 35°C during the day and 21°C at night. On the 31st (Fri), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
