Trogir is the oldest city on the Croatian Adriatic. Originally settled by the Greeks in the 3rd century BC, Trogir has a wondrous collection of monuments and buildings within its old town, causing UNESCO to declare the whole centre as a World Heritage Site. Located in the centre of the Dalmatian Coast between the hills and the sea, it is not only the city centre that enthrals visitors, but also the stunning scenery and captivating culture.
There is an amazing amount to see from a Trogir villa. The old town is filled to bursting point with attractions. A great place to start your tour of the Trogir attractions is the Town Museum which is found in the Garagnin-Fanfogne Palace, giving you a great insight and understanding of what it is you are looking at once you return into the open air. The Town Walls, Cathedral of St Lawrence and Cipiko Palace are among the Trogir attractions you simply can not omit from any tour, but there is so much to see here that you can spend many days exploring, discovering amazing historical artefacts at almost every turn. If you love art, history and culture, a Trogir villa is somewhere you must visit at least once during your lifetime.
Trogir accommodation acts as a superb base for sailing holidays. The crystal clear waters and maze of islands along the Dalmatian Coast makes excellent sailing terrain, and there is something a little special about sailing into the shadow of the ancient walls of Trogir. Trogir waterfront has recently been completely overhauled and now sees some incredible yachts berthing during the summer.
The beaches of Trogir are a mix of pebbles and sand, providing much needed refreshment from the summer sun. The Pantan Beach is the most popular beach in Trogir, flanked by pine woodland and protected by national park status. The beach can get busy, and there is a great beach bar by the sea where you can buy refreshments. There are also surfing schools and scuba diving centres in Trogir too.
In the evening, there is a huge amount to do from Trogir accommodation. Throughout the year, classical concerts, folklore events and performances occur in many of the town squares and larger venues, and if there is nothing official on, you have a huge choice of bars, restaurants and lively cafes to choose from.
A visit to the nearby city of Split is well worth it. Split is the second largest city in Croatia, and has a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere. Here too are some fantastic monuments from eras throughout the region’s history, as well as a range of world class restaurants and shops. If you would prefer to head down to the seaside during the heat of the summer, the Makarska Riviera is not far away from Trogir accommodation, with the town of Promanja fully deserving of its hype.
Trogir basks in a wonderfully Mediterranean climate resulting in long, hot summers and brief, dry winters. There are over 2,700 hours of sunshine every year, with temperatures reaching well into the 30’s (˚C) during June, July and August. During the summer, swimming in the sea is a real pleasure, with sea temperatures of over 25˚C throughout the same period. If your Trogir villa has a pool, the extra freedom is priceless during the heat of the day.
Split Airport (SPU), Croatia’s second largest airport, lies just 3km outside Trogir, meaning that any self catering Trogir accommodation is fantastically easy to reach from the UK. Both Manchester (MAN) and London are connected to Trogir by direct flights all year round, and there are a handful of seasonal routes provided during the summer from a larger range of British Airports.
