Full description
From Bol your tour takes you first to Pučišća, the main town on the island when we think about stonemasonry. The story of stone will begin with a visit to the only stonemason school in this part of Europe. It is located right next to the sea in a deep cove and from there enjoy a splendid view of the townhouses on the hill slopes resembling an amphitheater. During a break, you will have the opportunity to look for local souvenirs made from the famous Brač stone. You will continue your excursion with a short drive along the north side of the island passing by olive groves and stone mounds and visit Škrip, the oldest settlement on the island of Brač. Although very small, it still gives you a feel of its long and important history. You will visit scenic viewpoint and remains of Illyrian city walls before going to the local museum where you can enter in a Roman mausoleum and see remains of prehistoric animals from this region and different tools and handmade objects which inhabitants of the island used for fishing, cultivating vineyards and herding sheep. After this museum, you will visit a different and very special museum, the Olive Oil Museum. Through the owner’s family story, you will find out how olive oil used to be produced in the old days. You will taste the oil they produce today as well as other island delicacies. After the lunch, you will continue to Nerežišća, a town that for centuries served as the capital of the island and the seat of the island duke. A very special little church can be seen in the town, that of Saint Peter with an endemic Dalmatian pine tree growing on its roof. On our way back to Bol, you will take a short break for pictures and a beautiful view on Vidova Gora, the highest peak of all the Adriatic islands.

    One of our most enjoyable days during our tour of Croatia! You get to see other sides to the island that you otherwise wouldn’t get a chance to, that are completely different to Bol. Nikica was a great guide, super friendly and speaks so many languages you don’t need to worry about not being able to understand throughout the day! Traditional picnic was a highlight and overall a very enjoyable day! Thanks Nikica!
