What you'll do

This is a walk in the old town and in the legends and anegdotes of the city with a sprinkle of history, NOT a boring history lesson but a sparkle to light your curiosity for a chance to fell hopelessly in love with Rovinj. During the walk I will even introduce you to the hand made arts and crafts of local artists and sometimes to the artists themselves. So you are sure to bring home an original. I am a true local, my family resides in Rovinj for generations, even because of that, in a town of approximately 15 thousands people, I know practically all locals and they know me. We will meet in front of the oldest building in Rovinj, (Battistero della SS Trinità) that is located at few steps from the bus station. We will stop for approximately 10 minutes at the beginning of the pedestrian zone, just footsteps from the meeting place to give you information about the development of the Istrian region from ancient time to the present just that you have an overall idea. We will walk and stop in particular vewing points and I will tell you about legends, and mentality and character of our people through anegdotes and stories.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

This is not a history lesson, I will give some historical information to better locate the legends I will be talking about. The artists that I will introduce you to are not paying me to promote them.
