'''Rovinj''' (Italian: Rovigno) is a city in [[Istria]]. The city is officially bilingual (Croatian and Italian).
by plane===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.
'''Venezia Lines''' is the fist high speed ferris company in the North Adriatic , which links Venice to Istrian Coasts and in paricular Rovinj.

Rovinj is well-placed for visiting the [[Limski Kanal]] (
Lim Canal), 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.
