Through the course of history, Hvar Town has been a melting pot of cultures and influences and is still bursting with history, art, and culture. It is also the home of Europe’s oldest municipal theater, which was built in the early 17th century over an arsenal in a peacemaking attempt by the then ruler of Hvar.

Today you will enjoy a walking tour of the town of Hvar, dominated by the Renaissance Cathedral with its distinctive bell tower dedicated to St. Stephen. The square is surrounded by buildings dating from the 16th – 17th centuries when the town was an important Venetian trading and seafaring center. Also in this part of town, you may wish to visit the Benedictine Convent, where the nuns spend their lives praying and weaving elaborate laces from the fibers of the agave plant. The convent’s museum shows some delicate and intricate lace designs, some dating to the late 19th century.

If you like, you can also explore Hvar’s fortress. The steep hike to the very top of the fortification is well worth it for the beautiful views over the bay. You will also stop in the Franciscan monastery and the exquisite Church of Gospa od Milosti (Our Lady of Charity).

This afternoon your driver will meet you for a journey just outside the city to the small coastal town of Jelsa and a visit to the family winery of Tomic – one of the most famous wine producers in all of Croatia. You will enjoy a tasting of wine and locally-produced olive oil.
