History on every corner
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed city centre is a hotchpotch of Gothic, Baroque and Roman buildings, all vying for your attention. Porec has been a point of interest on the world map for centuries and the evidence of its glory days can be found everywhere. Explore the sturdy walls that embrace the old city, and visit the Roman House on your way to the most ancient square in town, Marafor. Istria's most impressive Roman shrine, the Mart Temple, also stands here, alongside the ruinous Temple of Neptune. Roman ruins are just the beginning though. Gothic and Baroque palaces literally line the streets. Don't miss the historical reenactments during Porec's Giostra festival.
Porec is the portal to world-class nightlife in Istria. Party people travel from across the world in pursuit of the A-list DJs who play its unique venues every summer. Throughout June, July and August, a plethora of music festivals offer visitors every kind of entertainment, from dance beats to folk tunes. Don't miss concerts in Porec's stunning Euphrasiana, one of the most revered of the city's music venues. You are unlikely to find a spot as atmospheric for a musical evening than this one, especially when the ancient building is lit up and its archways resonate with orchestral melodies.
Porec for families
Porec isn't only a party hub - there are plenty of festivals taking place throughout the summer months that will delight visitors of all ages. Come and see street performers and bright processions at the Open Air Festival, which combines live theatre and outdoor film screenings. August's Street Art Festival animates Porec with a showcase of live performances, sculptural installations and interactive artworks by local and international artists. Take a free cycling tour of the city, and explore the Istrian coast and its interior with your family. You can stop off along the way for a picnic in the sunshine and you don't have to venture far beyond your holiday home in Porec to see glorious olive groves, pine forests and secluded beaches.
Porec is blessed with sapphire seas and warm weather throughout the holiday season. Children's playgrounds can be found on the beaches of Lotosi, Residence and Peskera Bay. Launch your holiday with innumerable watersports, including windsurfing, sailing and kite surfing. Snorkel in the crystalline water at Laguna Galijot, or take a dip at the serene Brulo Beach, which is conveniently backed by showers and other helpful facilities. Adult-only Riviera Beach offers elegant sun loungers and a waited bar service, so you can stretch out and relax. If the endless list of water sports on offer don't whet your appetite for holiday homes in Porec, the town also hosts a world-class beach volleyball championship every July, which attracts enthusiastic crowds and top-notch players. Who says beach life isn't exciting?
Porec is home to some of the most decadent cuisine in all of Istria. A major port since Roman times, the town's restaurants enjoy access to an array of shellfish and seafood. You'll also find Italian and Hungarian flavours among the melange of Istria's specialities. It's not far from your holiday apartment in Porec to Tar-Vabriga, where olive oil oozes from the pores of this seaside town. The Larun olive groves beneath the town reputedly produce the finest oil in Europe. Rich, ochre in colour and utterly delicious, the olive oil sold here makes the perfect souvenir and restaurants in town capitalise on having it on tap. Enjoy this supreme quality stuff with a glass of Croatian wine as the sun sparkles on the sea.
