H.I.T. - Hvar Island Tour - A perfect opportunity to see the Island with its interesting landscape and numerous villages. We begin the tour with a drive along the old road which connects Hvar and Stari Grad.
After a pleasant drive through the green inland of the island we arrive to Stari Grad, one of the oldest settlements on our coast. It was founded by the Greeks already in the 4th century BC and named Pharos. After a short walk through the stone streets, we visit the Dominican Monastery and Hektorovic’s castle.
After visiting Stari Grad we continue through the well known vineyards in UNESCO protected Hora before reaching the small town of Vrboska where we will visit the church of St.Lawrence with one of the finest collections of Renaissance art on the island. We will take a break in a wine celler near the fortified church of Saint Mary of Mercy.
Driving by the sea we continue towards Jelsa, a charming little town on the northern part of the island founded in the 14th century. On our way back to Hvar town we will drive through the charming villages built in the traditional style in the island's interior.
Lunch is usually organized in the abandoned village of Humac in a tavern with the same name. The tour aslo takes us to the island's higest peak, St. Nicholas (626m) from where you can see all islands of central Adriatic and the mountains of hinterland.
On our way, we will pass through many lavender fields, olive plantations and vineyards and see abandoned vineyards and miles of stone walls which are several centuries old.
Along with the ride and lunch, we can arrange a visit to Grap?eva cave, which is just half an hour walk from the Humac tavern.
