Porec is a town on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula, covering an area of 139 square kilometers. The city is almost 2,000 years old, influenced by a mix of various cultures and nationalities; these included the Liburnians, the Histrians, the Greeks, and the Celts. Before you begin your boat trip in Porec, you can enjoy a pleasant walk around the town to see the remains of ancient monuments and temples. One of Poreč's major landmarks is the 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Venetians and Romans left many traces too, so it is not unusual to hear the Italian language on the streets. Many castles, gothic palaces, and beautiful fortifications were built when Porec was conquered by the Venetian Republic, in 1267. The big Neptune Temple, the Palace of Zucchato, the Two Saints House, and the Pentagonal Fortress are mesmerizing monuments built when Porec passed under the control of Venice. Once you have felt the spirit of history in the old town, you can enjoy an active holiday by renting a boat in Porec.
