It is a good work out to get to the top, but there are plenty of benches along the way to enjoy the views over the rooftops of Hvar. Once you arrive at the fortress there is a bar to quench your thirst, cooling dungeons,...More
The walk to the fortress is really good, you can visit the street of the town, which are beautiful, however because I was off season, everything was close. The fortress is open but very small and only the point of view of the city is...More
Wonderful View of Hvar Harbour from here. It is worth a long climb. Initially you climb up the stairs then walk through castle/garden paths which long but not too strenuous. Observing wonderful views along the way.

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 little shops. I could easily spend the whole day there, I found that 5 hours was not enough for us to see everything and relax.
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
