Our tour guide told us all about this interesting area with a fascinating history - shame it is not fully utilized today.

A unique chunk of history close at hand to the town. Very little has changed here in 32 centuries - wow.

We rode our bikes from Stari Grad all the way to Jelsa through the Stari Grad Plain. There are numerous markers along the way that explain a bit about the history and location which are well worth the read. There are countless fig trees (we...More

We journeyed across the backbone of Hvar Island to this small port city adjacent to a large, very fertile plain. I say this because most of Croatia is made up of limestone rock! Although lavender season is over, on these rocky hills is where they...More

This plain, which has been farmed for centuries, was a peaceful, beautiful ride. In addition to passing various crops here, you can ride toward the hills to be surrounded by lavendra. A great way to spend a day!

Hire a bike from Stari Grad and explore on two wheels. Bit bumpy but worth a sore bottom for the views and experience.

Riding along the road through Stari Grad Plain was a treat. The usual grape vines and olive trees of course but to know that the fields were initially set up over a thousand years ago by the Greeks gives a special sense of history. Dropping...More

We drove through this area and enjoyed seeing the stone walls that have separated the land into plots. These plots have been used for over 2,400 years! The plots contain grapes, lavender and olive trees.

Hi, it took us 15/20 minutes to cycle to V and maybe 10 to cycle to Jelsa. We came back by a different route which was well worth doing. It was hot so bring plenty of water. It's a fairly easy cycle to do.

Hello, Thank you very much if you take the time to read and reply this. So it's our second time in Croatia in a couple of days (22 July to 08 August). We already visited for about 15 days a few years back and we did Zagreb, Plitvice Lakes, Split, Hvar, Korcula, and Dubrovnik. We plan on coming back to the region many times. So this time we gonna do the following: - Hvar (again, because we love it so much so why not): 3 days - Get a car in Split (no stopping in Split) - Zadar (5 days)...More
