The views of Hvar from the fortress are spectacular. However, the hike up the hill is strenuous and temperatures can be quite hot. If you are not in good physical condition, I would not recommend walking to the fort. If you can manage the walk,...More

Amazing place in order to see the whole of Hvar. Recommend to watch the sunrise from this place !Or go during sunset , one wouldnt actually see the sunset as sun sets in the opposite side but still spectacular views.

Enjoyed the walk up to get the blood pumping. Great views, 4 kuna entrance fee. Not so great cafe. Ordered a coffee and came out luke warm. Other than that worth the climb.

Definitely suggest you get to the Fortress early morning so as to avoid the heat of the sun later in the day. Also to avoid the crowds if a cruise ship has docked off the island. The views are amazing, the climb is definitely worth...More

We arrived in Hvar with a boat and you directly have a nice view on the fortress. It stands out on the top of a small hill I definitely recommend going to see the history of Hvar

We really enjoyed our visit to Hvar Fortress and there are splendid views of the city. It’s 40 kuna entry (approx £4.00) and is good value. I would recommend in the summer going up for about 7:30pm to watch the sun set and it is...More

It is a little walk to get up to the fortress - but a gorgeous view is your reward! The walk is gorgeous as well - first up thru the steep stone staircases of Old Town then through a meandering walkway with lovely landscaping. Well...More

This has to be the best view point in Hvar. Get those legs ready and make your way up to the fortress. It is only 40Kuna for an adult entry and the view is incredible. There are multiple opportunities for photos which went down well...More

You will enjoy Hvar a lot. It is such a special place, the fortress is beautiful but that's not everything. There is so much charm and character to the island. It has a great market, nice restaurants and one of the best... 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
