On a walking tour visit the Old Town with the picturesque little streets and the first public theatre in Europe. We will continue towards the Island of Vis once a strategic naval base and closed to tourists. Due to this isolation, Vis has a special charm of “The Mediterranean as it once was” making it interesting to visit.
