How to Spend 2 Days in Trogir
HWith two days in Trogir, you can explore its well-preserved medieval town, sample regional specialties, and hit the beach, and you’ll still have enough time to go island-hopping along the Dalmatian coast. Here are some ideas for how to spend two days in Trogir.
Day 1: Explore the Old Town
Morning: Take a morning walking or cycling tour of Trogir’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to check off all the most notable landmarks. Admire the views from Kamerlengo Fortress; learn more about Trogir’s history at the Trogir City Museum; and visit historic sites such as Cipiko Palace and the Cathedral of St. Lawrence.
Afternoon: To explore farther afield this afternoon, renting a bike is a convenient option. First, pass through the North Gate—part of the old medieval city walls—and cross the bridge to the mainland. Visit Trogir Market to sample typical Croatian dishes and traditional rakija (fruit brandy), then head back through the Old Town and cross over to Ciovo Island, where you can tool along the coast and stop at the island’s beaches to swim and sunbathe.
Night: Sunset boat cruises are a popular evening activity, but for something a little different, head out to the nearby Pantan River for a paddleboarding excursion. Paddle along the calm waters as the sun sets over the riverside beaches, and look out for local wildlife, which is most active in the evening hours.
Day 2: Island-Hopping on the Dalmatian Coast
Morning: Some of Croatia’s most beautiful islands lie just off the coast of Trogir, and island-hopping cruises let you visit multiple destinations in one day. Perhaps set sail on a 5-island cruise including Hvar Island, visit the magnificent Blue Lagoon, or charter a private boat and devise your own unique itinerary. Alternatively, a day trip to Krka National Park is a popular choice for hikers and nature lovers.
Afternoon: Continue your cruise this afternoon to islands such as Hvar, Bisevo, and Vis, stopping to marvel at natural wonders including the Blue Cave and Stiniva Beach, or head ashore to browse the shops in Hvar Town. Many cruises include lunch, and all tours offer plenty of chances to swim and snorkel in the Mediterranean.
Night: Spend your final night in Trogir at one of the ocean-view restaurants along the Riva Promenade. Take a sunset stroll along the palm-lined seafront, then enjoy a dinner of fresh seafood and regional wine as you gaze out over the illuminated marina.
