The fort is about 20 minute walk from Hvar town square and whilst it doesn't get a little steep in patches , it's well worth it. The views are spectacular and you can see all the Pakleni is lads and surrounding district. Take a water...More

If in Hvar you must walk up to the fort then have a cold beer, the views are stunning of the harbour and the posh Yachts

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.

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

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
