Historical Hvar is best explored on foot. On this tour an expert guide will walk you through the city’s narrow, monument-packed streets. First off, you’ll drop by the 15th-century Franciscan monastery. Renaissance cloisters and a painting-lined church are among the showstoppers here. The refectory is also worth a look – it’s filled with curling manuscripts and nautical charts. Next up is St Stephen’s Cathedral, which towers over Hvar’s town square. The Venetians have left their mark on this place, so you can expect a tall bell tower and a red-tiled roof. Next up is the Arsenal, where Europe’s oldest community theatre was founded in 1612. The tour will finish up at the Benedictine monastery. For the last century, lace has been a Hvar speciality – there’s a display here that’s been woven by the nuns from locally-collected agave leaves.
