“Worth it”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Worth the walk for the view, espcially at Sunset. Be prepared for a lot of stairs and then a long steep walk though!

“Amazing harbour view and welcome cold beer!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

The climb is quite a long one but really easy slope and a lot of shade and plenty of chances for photos of view and plants and butterflies

“Worth the walk for the view!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

stunning views, beautiful walk- worth the effort. Museum inside the fort is disappointing, but not a reason to skip.

“Hvar, Fortress”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Well, road has to be better to drive there. Parking in the city HVAR is very expensive per hour. Fortress is good, has nice view on the city and harbor. Clean air.

“For a gorgeous sunset and a nice workout, this is an attraction not to be missed."”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

About a 20-30 minute walk (up some steep rocky stairs at first then up a winding incline to the top), this fortress is worth the effort. If you'd like to take a taxi to the top, expect to pay 10 euros for the ride for a taxi full of people. There is also an entrance fee to this fort but I am not sure what it is. You can take a picnic lunch and enjoy the view overlooking Hvar's harbor or have a quick snack at the snack bar or a more filling lunch or dinner at the cafe there.
