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.
