Next to the famous street, you should walk up or down the street from this square up to the church. There are a lot of nice handmade products along the way while you can enjoy taking nice photos of little cute street and architecture in this area
Absolutely beautiful area. I wouldn't eat on he harbour though (somewhat boring, over priced restaurants), but a must visit place, look at the boats etc. If we had more time definitely would have gone out on some kind of boat trip, there are a number that leave from this area.
People are overexpecting, but it's a nice piece of old city.
beautiful old streets of Rovinj connected with seafront
Pretty cozy waterfront of Rovinj!
BALBI'S ARCH LEADS TO THE HISTORIC CENTER OF ROVINJ WITH VERY NICE STREETS AND LITTLE SHOPS. WORTH CROSSING THE ARCH AND LOSING YOURSELF INSIDE THE NICEST PART OF THE CITY.
An arch. Nothing more nothing less. But it is a nice entrance to the narrow streets of Rovinj
It is an arch, nice old arch. Provide you an entrance to the old city. Worth to see if you are in Rovinj
Slightly smaller than expected, but then again, thats life for ya :D
