Best Romantic Summer Getaways: Rovinj, Croatia

David Alexander Arnold

Rovinj, Croatia

Dubrovnik gets lots of love, but we’re smitten with the lesser-known city of Rovinj to the north. The terracotta rooftops, church steeples, and winding cobblestoned streets of the medieval old city are set on a peninsula jutting into the Adriatic Sea, which provides the focus for the many alfresco cafés lining the waterfront. Shop for wild asparagus, truffles, and just-off-the-boat seafood at the St. Euphemia farmers’ market, held daily, then take your picnic to Golden Cape Forest, a short bike ride or walk from the old town. The striking Hotel Lone overlooks the edge of the forest and offers chic, design-conscious rooms with private infinity pools on each balcony. Dine at the top of the hill, near the cathedral, at Monte, where molecular cuisine meets farm-to-table fine dining.
