This is the best place for views overlooking Hvar harbor. It's quite the climb to get to the top but it's so worth it. You do have to pay to get into the fortress itself but it isn't too expensive and that's where you can...More

I've noticed that many reviews published under the name of Napolean Fortress actually belong to the Hvar Fortress. Please note, Hvar Fortress can be easily hiked from the town of Hvar, but Napolean Fortress is farther ahead and a car can easily reach up to...More
