What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Hvar island? Is it Hvar town with its trendy clubs and luxurious hotels? Or maybe the famous lavender fields? These two are definitely Hvar’s trademarks but there is a lot more to be discovered on this 70km long island filled with quaint villages, green fields and pine covered hills.
Here is our top ten of things to do on Hvar:
1. Bring out your inner diva in Hvar Town. Join the party minded crowd on the beach, drink champagne at one of the stylish clubs and enjoy a traditional meal at one of the excellent restaurants, such as restaurant Dalmatino, Luccullus or or Mediteranneo near the main square.
2. Visit the Franciscan Monastery, the Church of our Lady of Merci and the museum, right next to the centre of Hvar Town. Not only are the monuments themselves a beautiful sight, but they also display some interesting pieces of art, such as the impressive 6x2m painting of The Last Supper, one of the greatest masterpieces on the Adriatic coast.
3. Take a wine tour of Hvar’s best wineries. There are several organizers to choose from and they all allow you to discover the finest Dalmatian wines, visit the vineyards and check out the traditional and modern wine making techniques.
