Franciscan Monastery, Hvar

4.4
Sitting just a short walk from the bustle of Hvar's main square, Franciscan Monastery holds a rich collection of museum exhibits and art in a peaceful seaside setting. Browse the collection of Greek, Roman, and Venetian coins, check out the 16th-century Ptomely's Atlas, and gaze at the grand and detailed 2 x 8 m (6.5 x 26 ft) depiction of the Last Supper from the same period. In the monastery garden, a 300-year-old Cypress tree provides respite from the often-intense Adriatic sun.

Where to stay in Hvar

The island of Hvar caters to well-heeled travelers, so expect high prices and few bargain beds near the sea, especially at peak season. Stari Grad and Hvar Town draw the biggest crowds, though neither town offers budget-friendly hotels. Don't be put off by this, as you can find modestly priced accommodations in the form of private apartments rented by local families. If you've come to Hvar to splurge, check out the island's luxury hotels, with airy rooms, sea views, and access to private beaches.
