I wandered around the Basilica by myself. Lots to see and marvel at. The bell tower was very challenging but the views are stunning.

Breath-taking architecture dating back to the earliest Christianity. Some parts of it lack more detailed information on the exhibition but all together a must-see place in Poreč.

Dont know if there is a specific car park for the Basilica, but plenty of parking around the town, along the sea front wall
I have read that the basilica is closed starting in October. Is this information correct? If it is open , what are the hours? Thanks!
