    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    WE really enjoyed roaming around the little town . The streets are so narrow as you would expect since the town dates back to 350BC . It is so beautiful and restfull. We were sorry we didn't plan to saty a few nights. Oh well that's how it is . I had made all our hotel bookings before we left home ...so no flexibility!!

    The town loggia and a clock tower

    On the north side of the bottom part of the square is the town loggia with a clock tower from the 15th century, which together are the only remains of the former Governor's Palace. The Palace was already completed in the middle of the 14th century as an impressive building with four towers.
    Of the former four towers of the Governor's Palace, the clock tower from the end of the 15th century, renovated in the 18th and the 19th century, is the only one remaining. The loggia and the clock tower are a part of the "Palace" today, which was built where the Governor's Palace once stood. The only remains of the Governor's Palace are two relieves of the Venetian lion, a large well and a lintel from the Palace chapel from 1612.

    Now it' s a hotel...but the view ot the loggia is always amazing.

    Hvar is the perfect island to do some exploring on in my opinion. It´s not too big, and not too small either.

    We went by scooter around the island to several towns; Hvar Stari Grad, Milena, Jelsa, Vrboska. All of these towns have their own charm in different ways. Pack off in the morning, bring a bottle of water & a bathingsuite. Stop in one city for lunch, and head on to another foor some swiming and/or picnic!
