This morning meet your local guide for a private walking tour of the Old Town of Hvar. Unique fusion of lush Mediterranean nature and rich heritage make it an undeniable gem of Adriatic.
Your stroll through its treasury starts by visiting the largest square in Dalmatia, ringed by grand palaces and beautiful historic edifices. The most impressive is the Cathedral of St. Stephen, a harmonious synthesis of the Renaissance and early Baroque elements. Its graceful 17th century bell tower is the most beautiful element in the skyline of the town. A stroll through narrow streets of the town will reveal numerous other monuments, such as the Franciscan and Benedictine Monastery and the mighty Arsenal, a 13th century warehouse for the communal war galley that used to house Hvar theatre – the oldest theatre in Europe dating from 1612.
After the tour of the town, we suggest you to visit the Hvar Fortress for breathtaking views. A 16th century citadel, built in the time of the Venetian rule, is perched on a hill above the ramparts and it dominates the town. Even though there is some 25 – 30 minutes of a walk up to the top, we promise that the stunning views make it all worthwhile.
