We’ve just spent nine days exploring the north western part of Croatia known as Istria. One of my favourite towns in the area was Rovinj.
The old town of Rovinj was originally on an island but the channel separating the town and the mainland was filled in in 1763. A maze of cobblestone streets lined with old stone buildings take you from the harbour to St Euphemia’s Basilica on the hill and the bell tower that is the centre piece of the old city.

Next week’s photo will be from the island of Vis where we are currently staying.
Day by day photos from our travels can be seen on Instagram and also on Facebook.
We’d love you to join us!
