Rovinj is a charming little fishing port on the Istrian peninsula, washed by the Adriatic Sea. The town was originally an island and part of the Rovinj archipelago, which lies just off the mainland. The Old Town is tightly packed with houses sitting close together, with a labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets winding their way down to the seaside. The town’s most prominent landmark is St. Euphemia’s Church, perched on a hilltop, with panoramic views of the headland and waterfront. The laidback air invites travelers to let down their hair and enjoy a leisurely vacation, soaking in the sun and the sea, and people watching by the town square. Rovinj also boasts of lively outdoor markets that are fun to browse around. Relish the delicious fresh seafood, a variety of pastas, exquisite Istrian truffles and pršut or dried ham, all washed down by the local Terrano red wine liqueur known as Teranino.
Hotel Lone sits tucked into the hillside within Golden Cape Natural Park, just minutes from the central town square. Designed to resemble a luxury ocean liner and featuring eye-catching curves, this luxurious beach resort is a short walk from the water.
