Hike or ride through Stari Grad Plain, a World Heritage-listed lanscape virtually unchanged since the original agricultural infrastructure was put in place by the Greeks in 4th century BCE. You can spot remnants of this distant past everywhere, not only in the vineyards and olive fields, but also in the rustic stone walls that once divided plots of arable land. You can cycle around the area on paved biking tracks, or hike through the countryside to find secluded spots tailor-made for a private picnic.
