2 day trips from Split - unmissable Hvar and Trogir
We've been to the Croatia and particularly the Split area many times. We love it. But if you can tear yourself away from the city, we suggest the following two day trips. Both are easy to organise yourselves on public transport.
1. Hvar Town on Hvar Island
Hvar is clearly a destination in its own right as another UNESCO World Heritage site, but you can easily make a day trip of it from Split. There are regular high speed catamarans (1 hour) – with Jadrolinija Ferries– and boat trips from Split. It’s become a party town, but you can escape the crowds in the beautiful narrow lanes up the hill towards the 16th century Fortress and behind the harbour around the St Stephen’s Square (a rectangular plaza leading up to St Stephen’s Cathedral). Make sure you walk along as much of the sea front as you can.
Tip: If you’re staying longer, or started early, take a short trip to Milna 15 minutes away – a small cove with clear, aquamarine water and a cluster of cafes and restaurants. It's paradise.
