Halfway between Rovinj and Novigrad on Istria’s busy west coast, Poreč has long been given over to tourism, even before Croatia’s current boom. This doesn’t mean that this former Roman colony doesn’t have a history. Known to Italians – and the rest of the world until 1947 – as Parenzo, Poreč contains the Euphrasian Basilica, a 6th-century wonder of Byzantine architecture. The once uniform hotel stock has improved no end, though tourists strolling along focal historic Decumanus will still be pestered by restaurant barkers.
RECOMMENDED: where to eat, sleep and drink in Poreč.
