If you are in Spilt you most take the farry to Hvar for minimum one day! Explore the beautiful town maybe rent a car and just drive to the countryside. no stress just enjoy your time there..

The walk up to the Fortress was painful as it was steep and 40 degrees that day! Very much worth it when we got up there and saw the view! There is a restaurant and a "mini market" on the top.

I followed google map and it directed me a quite long way walking from town center to the fortress. Actually you can just climb the stairs starting from an alley all the way to the top. The fortress requires ticket so I didn't get in. Enjoy a good hike and be aware of the mosquitoes on your way back.

What's not to love. You are on vacation in Croatia (which is beautiful) and you stop at Hvar and have the best lunch and then take a hike to the fortess. The fortress was not so much as the actual hike (beautiful) and the view!

It may be a bit of a trudge up but the views, history and kodak moments are totally worth the effort. We took our time going up - what's the rush anyway! - and meandered around the fortress once we made it to the top. We have so many photos and each is gorgeous - out to the islands, over... More

Really impressive fortress on the hill. Need some walking up the hill but it is worth it. The view is amazing.
