I don't consider myself to be in shape, and this climb just wasn't that difficult. The first part up some stairs had interesting shops along the way, and then the rest of the way was a gentle sloping path that zig-zagged it's way to the fort.

View from the fort over Hvar is spectacular. You can get a coffee or a drink at the top as well. Moderate fitness required.

A hillside walk to the top with stops on the way to admire the view over to Brac. Good to watch the seacraft coming and going. Cruises stop here from Venice - could be worth missing that, if you're independant travellers.

The fortress has a really cool view, I like the prisons, as well. Worth a stop, especially if the weather is bad or you are sunburnt from the beach.

Highly recommend going up here. If you active, I recommend running up to the fortress because it wasn't a very long way up.

On a rare rainy day still special. Great views of Hvar and a quick lesson on history. A must do while in Hvar. Only 15-20 minutes and decent exercise to get there.
