The Croatian island of Hvar serves as a picturesque location for a Mediterranean holiday, with a range of offerings from quiet coves to a lively medieval town.

Experience an authentic Adriatic lifestyle in Split, the largest city along the sea's coast.
Head to Split Market and Origin Croatian Cosmeticsfor some retail therapy. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Brela Beach and Velika Raduca beach.

Next up on the itinerary: steep yourself in history at Diocletian's Palace, get a taste of the local shopping with Riva Harbor, make a trip to Fruit's Square (Trg Brace Radic), and get the lay of the land with Walking tours.
