When to go: From June to September for swimming and tanning, spring and autumn for hiking and sightseeing.
What`s special: The Grand Hotel Palazzo was built in 1910 for aristocratic society, expect to be coddled. The hotel is right by the sea and you will enjoy a sea view from an outdoor pool or an indoor whirlpool. The fabulous combination of the restaurant’s tasteful dishes and the sound of the sea is amazing!
Where to enjoy food: Breakfast is in the room rate and you can visit the hotel’s restaurant for a lunch or dinner as well. If you wish, your food can be even served in your room. You can find a broad choice of restaurants on a close sea shore promenade.
Where is it: Nice town Poreč is in Istria, in North Croatia.The closest airport is at Croatian Pula. You can find international airports in Trieste (Italy) or Ljubljana (Slovenia).
Why go there: While in Poreč, look for the famous Euphrasian Basilica while taking a walk in the streets of the old town. The noble Opatija is worth a visit too, having a 12 km long promenade and a lot of crabs on the rocks below. The Pula Arena, Colliseum’s elder sibling, located in the city of Pula and the islands of the National park Brijuni are some great sightseeing destinations as well. In the latter, you will have a chance to see exotic animals in a local safari and the remains of ancient Roman buildings, both while travelling in a comfortable tourist train.
Even stunning Venice is not far away! If you decide to go by car, do not forget to take a look at the Miramare castle, halfway between Poreč and Venice.
How much is enough: In the main season (July, August) the price starts at 180 €/night/room for two, in June or September you can get a discount. Traveling in spring or autumn pays off, in April the prices begin at 70 €/night/room for two.
When I want something different: A similar standard is offered in the coastline Valamar Riviera Hotel & Villa Parentino. On the promenade there is the elegant Boutique Hotel Mauro. If you want a low cost holiday, look at Salvia 4 Stars Apartment or Apartment Old Town Square in the real heart of city.
