Tour Price : €590-790 Duration : 5-6 hours Languages: English - Italian - Croatian
A unique fusion of luxurious Mediterranean nature, rich cultural and historical heritage, and mundane, tourist present...
Voted one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world and praised by renowned international publications, the island of Hvar, on Croatia's Mediterranean coast, has been known for the healing qualities of its pure air and crystal clear sea since ancient Greek times. In the heart of Europe, Hvar's uniquely sunny micro-climate, unspoiled landscape, and rich cultural heritage made it one of the first tourist resorts in the Adriatic. Whispered to be the new St. Tropes, Hvar has climbed its way to international recognition without effort. Effortlessly ranked as Croatia’s trendiest summer destination, Hvar became an ultimate must-be spot on a travel map for demanding international travelers looking for an authentic Mediterranean experience scented with glamour.
Our first thing is the visit of Hvar city... Venetian small alleys made of stone like the houses that they surround them, water wells and hidden streets are the treasure of the town... the view from the city fortress its magic...
Continuing on the old road that goes through small island villages and lavender fields… reaching the oldest town on the island – Stari Grad (Old Town), with UNESCO, protected site: Stari Grad Plain. Stari Grad Plain on the island is a cultural landscape that has remained intact since it was first colonized by Ionian Greeks from Paros in the 4th century BC. The original agricultural activity of this fertile plain, mainly centering on grapes and olives, has been maintained since Greek times to the present. The landscape features ancient stone walls and trims, or small stone shelters, and bears testimony to the ancient geometrical system of land division used by the ancient Greeks, the chora which has remained virtually intact over 24 centuries.
Vrboska is our stop later on… Founded in the 15th century as a fishing harbor, known for its fortress Church of St. Mary (Sv. Marija), built as a refuge for its inhabitants during the 16th century...
Next, it's the village of Jelsa where we can have the tour of the Tomich Winery. Here you'll get the opportunity to have a look over the production section of the winery, where it's also situated the wine tastings in the wine cellar modeled after the ancient Roman dining rooms, which is why named Triclinium. Triclinium is the space which the winery is particularly proud of: it is carved out of stone, with ceilings made out of tufa and pillars made out of travertine, which was the method of construction used in the Diocletian cellars in Split. It's intended for anyone who wishes to escape the world for a while and experience Hvar's history, wines and stones in their indivisible connection.
I'll take you on a wonderful journey...
