When visiting historic cities and idyllic islands, join a private guided tour to a destination that is not always listed on the tourist map. Explore ancient history and culture in enchanting little towns that transform your enjoyable twin-centre holiday into an exciting and unforgettable journey of discovery.
Situated on a tiny island that is connected to Croatia’s mainland, the medieval coastal town of Trogir welcomes you to explore its rich history and heritage. The ancient town is easily accessible on a day-trip from Split. It’s connected via a bridge that also links the town to neighbouring Ciovo Island.
On a Split and Hvar Island twin-centre holiday you can enjoy a detour to a delightful Dalmatian town that was greatly influenced by the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Venetians. Trogir has so much historic value and importance that it was awarded UNESCO World Heritage site status in 1979. As you walk along the narrow cobblestone streets in the town’s maze-like centre, you can admire the stunning examples of classic Romanesque and Renaissance architecture that is remarkably well preserved. Visit Kamerlengo Fortress and the 13th century Cathedral of St. Lawrence. From the cathedral’s bell tower you can enjoy breathtaking sweeping views of the historic town.
On Croatia’s sunniest island you will discover the beautiful protected harbour of Stari Grad. One of the oldest towns in Europe, Stari Grad is situated on the north coast of cosmopolitan Hvar Island. To venture to the ancient settlement that was originally founded by the Greeks in 385 BC, you can join a private guided tour whilst you’re enjoying a relaxing Croatia twin-centre holiday in Dubrovnik and Hvar. If you want to escape the tourist crowds, Stari Grad is the perfect getaway retreat.
Long before Hvar Town was known as the capital of Hvar Island, Stari Grad was the principal town. The charming, picturesque pedestrian-only town is nestled deep into a bay, and is surrounded by winding cobblestone streets that direct you to an elegant square. The popular local landmark attractions include the 16th century stone house that was once home to famous Croatian poet Petar Hektorovic, and the 15th century Dominican monastery and fortified tower.
