'''Rovinj''' (Italian: Rovigno) is a city in [[Istria]]. The city is officially bilingual (Croatian and Italian).
Rovinj is served by [[Pula]] airport approximately 30 km south. The easiest way to reach Rovinj from the airport is to drive - the journey takes approximately 40 minutes. Although cars are not permitted in the old town, Rovinj is sufficiently small so that parking is available close to most of the city. Prices are around 2 HRK per hour (the park-o-meters accept only coins).
There are also buses from Central Pula.
* '''Cycle''' there are miles of cycle tracks to the south through pine forest that follow the coast line. Cycle Hire is relatively cheap for good quality bikes.
