so close to each other and so different
Walking tour of Poreč with visit to Euphrasiana - UNESCO Site
Walking tour of Rovinj - Old Town and Saint Euphemia Church
After only 45 minutes drive in a comfortable van, and visiting Lim Fjord nature park, this tour is a perfect combination of Bizantine and Venetian, fishing and farming, as I drive through beautiful landscapes between two towns on western Istrian coast, Rovinj Rovigno and Poreč Parenzo, Arupinum and Parentium. . .
Both places offer lots of history, local individual charm, hidden places and secrets, and I invite you to spend couple of pleasant hours with me. I like both places. . .
Also, I have a multitude of options of Extra hour or two on tour, that might include wineries, olive oil producers with their famous tastings, great local restaurants and taverns, in order to fully enjoy one of the most interesting gastronomic region in the world - Istria!

Our tour of Rovinj and Porec with Matijas was one of the best tours we have ever had. Matijas has wide experience in this part of the world and is so knowledgeable about everything we were interested in. He is also witty and just enjoyable to be with, and also unhurried (not watching his watch to see when our tour was supposed to end but actually keeping us an hour longer than our booked tour). He is a real find!
