Amazing Day Tour
Written By amazinghvar
The Amazing day tour designed especially for guests who had limited time on the island of Hvar. This is a custom designed tour, encompassing most of our tours: Panorama, Island, Lavender, Wine and Abandoned village tour.
This tour begins with a The French Fortress built by Napoleon’s troops, on St. Nicholas hill (which was used as a place of reconnaissance and lookout) and has a scenic view of Hvar town, the Spanish Fortress, Pakleni and Vis islands.
Tour continues driving through the green island of Hvar, passing through Brusje, where we will be able to walk through the Lavender fields, (seasonal options June – July).
Onto the port of Stari Grad, these old roads are paved with amazing views. We stop at Vidikovac for a snack and the perfect views of the islands deepest bays.
Then we approach the fascinating town of Stari Grad, once known as Pharia and Pharos the island’s capital. 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 fortress and still boasts the original fish pond. He 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 we will have a guided Wine tasting at one of the best vineries on the island.
As we had back, we will enjoy the charming abandoned village of Malo Grablje and on to our authentic Dalmatian dinner.
