If you've come to Hvar you'll have been attracted to the architecture and history of the Croatian coast / islands.... so do not miss this worthwhile walk! Takes about 30mins and you'll go up beautiful medieval steps through the city, and a long winding path...More

The fortress offers nice stair and sloped path to entrance. The views are great of the HVAR bay. Be sure to go down and check out the prison. There are many areas where you can sit and soak in the views.

Once you get up all the steps and meander your way round the walk path up to the fortress, you'll certainly appreciate the view down upon the town. It's relatively cheap to get into the actual fortress itself. Once you're in, there's not too much...More

Great views overlooking Hvar. You can drive up to the fortress if you have a car. There are also buses or taxis from town.

This is a must for anyone visiting Hvar. The views of the city and islands are spectacular; a great spot for that postcard photo. The old prison and museum of artifacts from sunken ships were very interesting.

It's a bit of a walk up a hill but well worth it for the stunning views. However, once inside I couldn't find any information about the place except where the cafe was.

I had to climb more than 140 upstairs and went up a little long hill. It made me so exhausted. But view from the fortress was very scenic. It absolutely deserves to climb the hill to see the great view.

It's actually set up really well. You simply go down to the ferry terminal and purchase a ticket. I can't remember the exact price, but Split to Hvar is around $15-$20. Then it's another ferry to get to Korcula. The... More

You could easily do it in 1/2 a day. I would say 3 hours would be enough and it would allow you to explore more. Sunsets are beautiful for the fortress and I think the early morning would give great light for photos. Enjoy... More
