Porec Travel Information

Porec, or Parentium, as it was once known, was originally a Roman town strategically positioned on a wooded peninsula amongst small bays and uninhabited islets, washed by the clear and warm waters of the Adriatic.

Its Roman heritage is distinctly visible with main streets named Decumanus and Cardo Maximus. Roman churches and villas, medieval walls and round towers, Gothic and Baroque houses all bear witness to the development of Porec throughout the long passage of time. This is an exquisitely built, old stone town of Venetian-style houses, narrow cobbled streets, famous treasures, gold mosaic frescoes, a 4th century crypt and its 6th century Euphrasian Basilica, a World Heritage site and one of the finest examples of Byzantine art.

Porec is the epicentre of the region’s tourism industry with an exciting range of quality hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, cafés and bars matched only by a bewildering selection of activities and excursions. This beautiful, coastal resort has won many national tourism awards for its outstanding quality.
