Parking in Rovinj
Rovinj was not originally designed to be a tourist resort. It’s past, as a medieval fortress town, developing into a fishing port, means it was not designed for so many vehicles. We recommend a little pre-planning before you arrive, and we can help you if you wish.
Like most of the apartments near to the centre of town, Apartment Iris does not have a parking space available for guests. But don’t let that discourage you, we have a plan!
This is where a little pre-planning is a good idea. Most of the parking spaces around Rovinj are controlled by the local council. Parking permits can be purchased from the office shown in the picture below which also gives you directions.
So, if you haven’t pre-planned, it’s not difficult to purchase tickets from this office. In this case, we suggest you park close to Apartment Iris at a meter, about 5 kuna should do it.
This will give you enough time to walk to the office and purchase a ticket for the length of your stay. The permit gives you the freedom to park at any meter, and even some car parks like the one here:
A permit also allows you to park your vehicle close to some of the more distant beaches. This is especially good if you like beaches with fewer people!
An easier alternative would be asking us to purchase your ticket before you arrive. This way, we can give it to you when you arrive at Apartment Iris, and everything is good! Just message us if this is what you prefer.
