In the evening we suggest you to stop by the Kamene priče restaurant and try out the great dishes with truffles paired with some amazing wine.
The museum of the city of Rovinj
The small museum located in the center of Rovinj, was founded in 1954 by a group of artists. Their idea was to gather the rich cultural heritage of the city in a single exhibition space.

A rainy day is a perfect chance for you to explore the embedded history of the town of Pula. Besides the Augustus temple, the Arena, we recommend a visit at the Aquarium of Pula.

Nothing better than taking a spa day to just relax and get some rest. Relaxing by the pool, getting treatments, embarking on a wellness experience at the sauna. Can you think of a better way of spending a rainy day? When you get hungry we recommend the tavern of Oprtalj where you can enjoy some traditional food made out of local, fresh and seasonal ingredients prepared in simple, classic ways.
