Reviews of Trogir

Lying around 19 miles from Split, Trogir is without a doubt Croatia's most charming port, and has miraculously managed to escape the effects of mass tourism.

My suggestion:
As with the rest of the Croatian coast, try to avoid the height of summer if at all possible. The tourists who visit in groups for the day at this time of year tend to spoil the peaceful charm of the town.

I have strong memories of this little town and its stylish, relaxed and understated ambiance and atmosphere. Far removed from Dubrovnik's hordes of tourists and the crowds of partygoers in Hvar, Trogir, in my opinion, has managed to retain a certain character, a certain charm, despite the increasing popularity of the Croatian coast with European holidaymakers.

Trogir's old town, which sits on a kind of peninsula between the mainland and the island of Čiovo, is utterly beautiful, and is home to an amazing number of historic old houses and buildings. Everything in the old town is constructed from that instantly recognisable combination of white stone and ochre roof tiles.

Trogir is one of the essential places to see on the coast and deserves to be included on the itinerary of anyone visiting Croatia as a tourist. I strongly recommend sitting out on one of the terraces with a glass of one of the region's local wines and simply observing the life going on around you.
