"There's something for everyone" could be Porec's motto -- the seaside resort offers a wide variety of attractions, from a UNESCO World Heritage basilica complex to endless shopping opportunities to slick resort hotels so crammed with activities and services that you think you're in Disney World. Porec courts tourism, supports tourism, and profits from tourism, but the town and surrounding area still manage to intrigue, perhaps because they are a seamless blend of medieval heritage, a well-oiled service industry, idyllic vineyards and olive groves, and blatant commercialism. Old Town is the epicenter of this mecca, with immaculate cobblestone streets, precisely clipped plantings, multilingual signs explaining all points of interest, and enough jewelry stores and gelaterias for every tourist in Croatia.
Porec is a lovely town with a plethora of leisure options, historical sites, and high comfort levels thanks to a sophisticated tourism infrastructure that lets visitors have a good time without feeling hassled. It is conveniently connected to transportation for anyone who wants to explore the Istrian Riviera. It's also a good staging area for venturing into the Istrian interior.
