About the Tour

Bye! My name is Josipa and I am a local guide in the town of Hvar, Croatia with over 10 years of experience. I love everything about my job and my island. Hvar was elected the most beautiful island in the Mediterranean and is known as the Unesco island because it is the only island in the world with 4 locations inscribed on the Unesco world heritage list.
First, we meet in front of St. Stephen's Cathedral and you will learn all about local history , Greeks, Romans, Croats and Venetians. Then we will visit the old part of the city of Hvar , where the aristocrats lived , and you will see beautiful old houses built in floral gothic style. This is the area where most of the local restaurants are located, so I will also tell you about the local food. Then we stop in front of the Benedictine monastery where the cloistered nuns make wonderful lace with agave fibers. Lace is inscribed on the Unesco world heritage list and you can only see it in the town of Hvar and nowhere else in the world.
After that, we proceed to the main shopping street since the Renaissance and you will see local art galleries and jewelers. Hvar is famous for jewelry made with corals and gold. Then I will show you the oldest theater in Europe, built in 1612, and one of the smallest shipyards on the Adriatic.
 At the end of the tour , you will experience a presentation of local products , wine and lavender oil and receive a special souvenir to take home.
After the tour, you will become an expert on the island of Hvar , as I will teach you all the insiders' tips and tricks. Let's start!

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: Me or my father will be in front of St. Stephen's cathedral. He has silver hair, and I have dark red hair. We will be wearing blue identity card.
