How to Spend 3 Days in Trogir
With its prime coastal location and fewer crowds than neighboring Split, Trogir is ideally situated for exploring the Dalmatian Coast. With three days, you’ll have enough time to take in Trogir’s medieval Old Town and other highlights, get in some beach time, and go island hopping, too. Here’s how to spend three days in Trogir.
Day 1: Historic Trogir
Explore Trogir’s atmospheric Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, first thing on a walking tour. Visit Trogir Market for regional specialties on the mainland, then cross the bridge to the Old Town and pass through the North Gate, part of the medieval city walls. Most walking tours stop at landmarks such as Cipiko Palace, the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, the Benedictine Monastery of St. Nicholas, and Kamerlengo Fortress. To learn more about Trogir’s rich history, visit to the Trogir City Museum. Time a stroll along the palm-fringed Riva promenade to watch the sunset over the colorful marina, then head to a waterside restaurant for a seafood dinner, followed by drinks at one of the many waterfront bars.
Day 2: Island Hopping
Trogir offers easy access to some of the most beautiful islands and beaches in Croatia, and an island-hopping cruise is a quintessential activity. For those who want to escape the crowds, a leisurely cruise around the islands of Drvenik Mali and Drvenik Veli includes the chance to swim in the Blue Lagoon and stop at beach towns and fishing villages. An island tour, ideal for travelers who want to check off as many destinations as possible, might include Hvar Island, the Blue Cave on Bisevo Island, and Stiniva Beach on Vis Island. Alternatively, book a private tour or boat charter to customize your trip.
Day 3: Krka National Park
Get out in nature this morning with a guided tour to Krka National Park. Start out at Skradinski buk, the park’s largest and most impressive waterfall, then hike the scenic woodlands before cooling off with a swim beneath the falls. Afterwards, enjoy a cruise along the Krka River, stopping at the Roski slap waterfall and historic monastery on Visovac Island.
In the afternoon, visit nearby Sibenik to explore its medieval Old Town on a walking tour and spot filming sites from the television seriesGame of Thrones. Alternatively, return to Trogir and spend the afternoon swimming, sunbathing, or taking part in water sports on the beaches of Ciovo Island.
