With glamorous yachts docked in the harbour and grand Venetian townhouses lining the streets of the old town, it's little wonder that the island of Hvar is often hailed the new St. Tropez. Attracting the rich, beautiful and famous from around the world, it's one of the few Dalmatian islands to feature in global media news with a legendary nightlife that elicits the sort of gossip that magazines crave. During the balmy summer months Hvar's chic bars and clubs are the place to come for a hedonistic night out. The after-dusk activities focus on the attractive Hvar old town, a destination with plenty else to recommend it. We offer a numbers of day trips from Hvar exploring beautiful bays, the local food, village tours and exploring by bike too.Read More
Sitting at the foot of pine-clad slopes, the medieval old town of Hvar is crammed with historical sights from the 15th century Franciscan Monastery to the hilltop Fortica citadel built upon the foundations of an ancient castle. St. Stephen’s Square lies at the heart of the old town and is one of the largest town squares in Dalmatia with cafes lining the square and the 18th century St. Stephen Cathedral standing at one end. Other highlights include Renaissance Theatre, originally built in 1612 and one of Europe's oldest, the Bishops's Treasury with an interesting collection of treasures, and the Benedictine Monastery.
