Photo Tour of Rovinj, Istria, Croatia

Turbulent skies continue for our last day in Croatia. On this Sunday we took it easy in this romantic coastal town that blends Italian and Croatian culture.

Narrow cobble stone streets full of Venetian style crumbly old buildings in an elegant state of disrepair. The store fronts are filled with tacky souvenir shops, more upscale “art” and everything in between. A fine place to stroll the harbor, eat a gelato, shop or watch the start of Euro 2016 at a local bar. Croatia won today by the way.

We did the Rick Steves walk about town, not really much to it but makes for a good orientation. There was also some sort of sailboat regatta in the harbor.

Lunch at Copacabana

It started to rain around lunch time and we ducked into one of the harbor restaurants, Copacabana, for a pizza and salad, one of our favorite lunch combinations, Napolitana without the cheese. Salty with far fewer calories than cheesy pizza. Believe me you get used to it and it becomes even better.

Church of St. Euphemia

We continued the Rick Steves guidebook tour after lunch, heading up to the Church of St. Euphemia. Big for such a small town.

The most interesting feature, the sarcophagus with the remains of Euphemia, is in the back behind the alter. The painting on the wall depicts her demise.
