This is a walk in the old town and in the legends and anegdotes of the city with a sprinkle of history, NOT a boring history lesson but a sparkle to light your curiosity for a chance to fell hopelessly in love with Rovinj. During the walk I will even introduce you to the hand made arts and crafts of local artists and sometimes to the artists themselves. So you are sure to bring home an original. I am a true local, my family resides in Rovinj for generations, even because of that, in a town of approximately 15 thousands people, I know practically all locals and they know me. We will meet in front of the oldest building in Rovinj, (Battistero della SS Trinità) that is located at few steps from the bus station. We will stop for approximately 10 minutes at the beginning of the pedestrian zone, just footsteps from the meeting place to give you information about the development of the Istrian region from ancient time to the present just that you have an overall idea. We will walk and stop in particular vewing points and I will tell you about legends, and mentality and character of our people through anegdotes and stories.
I am a Certified tourist guide and a professor of italian language and letterature. I have a lot of passions, among them creative writing, I have published 2 books of poems in Italy, and have been nominated and prized in numerous literary competitions in Italy. Italian is my mother language. Another of my passions is learning about hidden stories, leggends and anegdotes of my extraordinary city (in which my family lives for generations), ancient and recent and share them with our airbnb guests. I love to explore and learn new arts and craft skills like crochet that I learned from You tube tu
Maps of the town
We will visit the old town with some hidden spots that turists would easily miss if not accompanied by a local.
This is not a history lesson, I will give some historical information to better locate the legends I will be talking about. The artists that I will introduce you to are not paying me to promote them.
