This tour is about urban beauty of Hvar and her island. We will visit some quaint towns and villages, and take in breathtaking scenery enjoying all that is Hvar and surrounds.
Continuing through the stone streets along the new Riva, stopping for a coffee, and visiting the fortress “Tvrdalj” once belonging to the poet Petar Hektorović. He is known for his work named “Fishing and talk with fisherman”. It is the first realistic poem in Croatian literature. Hektorović dedicated all his life to his beloved fortress still with it’s original fish pond. Hektorović, the Poet, always wrote: “I must go back there, for it is calling me home”.
We continue through the well known UNESCO protected vineyards, to a small charming town Vrbovska, also called “Little Venice”. This town in Hvar is named such because of the many small stone bridges that connect the town over its narrow winding canal and the unique St. Mary of Mercy fortress – church.
Next stop is Jelsa, one of the largest towns on the island. It is a hidden secret from the tourist masses. Here you will find the spirit of St. John’s square.
From St. John’s square we will make our way to the oldest village and the reason for Jelsa’s existence, “Pitve Harbour”. It was built to service the needs of Pitve, the inland village. Enjoy the tranquil stone setting and per a lack of noisy crowds.
As we had back, we will enjoy the charming villages of Vrisnik, Svirče and Vrbanj and on to our authentic Dalmatian lunch/dinner.
