=== Rock Climbing ===
The excellent market on Valdibora sells fresh fish straight from the boat; truffles and truffle oil; olive oil; plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
''Be sure to carry cash, as not all places accept cards, and in those which do, the feature is usually "temporarily out of order".''
* <eat name="Calisona" alt="" address="Trg Pignaton 1" directions="Opposite the museum" phone="" url="" hours="" price="40-120kn" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Multilingual menu, with pizza, pasta, risotto, as well as speciality meat and fish dishes. Reasonable prices, excellent service. Sit and watch everyone go by, located just away from the crowded seafront squares.</eat>
*<eat name="Neptun" alt="" address="Joakima Rakovca" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="11am - 10pm" price="main course 45-120kn" lat="" long="">Quiet, quirky restaurant specialising in seafood, pizzas and veal cooked in the ''peka'' - a slow-cooking method using live coals and a long-handled pan. You need to order two days in advance for this.</eat>
*<eat name="Lampo" alt="" address="Sv. Križa 22, Rovinj" directions="" phone="" url="" hours="" price="main course 45-120kn" lat="" long="">Great restaurant with nice waiters, the food is excellent and the view is stunning.

So you can expect the waiters to clean everything that's on the table, for example, if you extinguish one cigarette in the ashtray, they will get a new ashtray for you. The food is excellent and comes in good amounts. You should definitely try the steak, because Dominic also owns a steakhouse in New York and he uses the same recipe.</eat>

==Get out==
==Get out==Rovinj is well-placed for visiting the [[Limski Kanal]] (''Canal di Leme''), where the film ''The Long Ships'' was shot. Excursions can also be made to the [[Brijuni]] Islands National Park, and to many of the other cities in Istria, such as [[Pula]], [[Novigrad]], [[Porec]], [[Pazin]], and [[Opatija]]. A slightly longer journey could take you to [[Rijeka]]; [[Izola]] or [[Piran]] in [[Slovenia]]; or [[Trieste]] in [[Italy]], all of which fall within the ancient boundaries of Istria.
