Today you will board a private motor boat for a scenic cruise towards Hvar Island. Since the island of Hvar lies in the heart of all the main sea routes since the ancient times, many different cultures left their traces to the present day. A Greek colony in the 4th century BC, Hvar gained its glory and power during the Middle Ages being an important port within the Venetian naval empire.
Upon arrival to the town of Hvar you will meet your local guide for a private walking tour. New meets the Old in the perfect harmony of the town of Hvar. You will start by visiting the largest square in Dalmatia, ringed by grand palaces and beautiful historic edifices, such as the town loggia and the Gothic and Renaissance palaces. The most impressive is the Cathedral of St. Stephen, a harmonious synthesis of the Renaissance and early Baroque elements. 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. Time permitting, we suggest you to spend the rest of the day on Pakleni Islands, a breathtaking archipelago with lush vegetation, beautiful bays and intact nature. Enjoy the azure waves, sandy coves surrounded by pine forests, endless fields of lavender and gentle breeze scented by aromatic herbs.
In the late afternoon, your skipper will take you back to Split.
