The Venetian Tower is located in the heart of the old island city of Trogir on the Dalmatian coast. Every corner of this UNESCO World Heritage city is within a few minutes walk including the old stone mainland bridge, the bridge to Island Ciovo, many good restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, shops and St. Lawrence Cathedral Square where live music is played most evenings. Due to the narrow polished stone streets cars are restricted to one road.
Centrally located Trogir, 'The Stone Beauty', is within easy reach of Island Hvar, Brac, Bol, Split; Krka waterfalls and many other local beauty spots. Opportunities include scuba diving, sailing, walking, mountain biking and water sports. Local beaches are within a few minutes walk. The 15th c Tower was built by Venetian traders and has been completely refurbished to a modern standard including air-con and luxury bathroom. The unique feature is the top floor quadruple aspect lounge with panoramic rooftop, mountain and sea views.

Car hire.: Trogir is a walled city so, if you hired a car, you would have to park it outside the city walls. There is short term parking within a couple of minutes walk and long term parking about five minutes walk away. You will find much to occupy you within walking distance of the Tower including the beach. The bus station, with buses to Split and Sibenik that connect with the ferries to the islands, is less than five minutes walk. There is also a ferry from Trogir to the islands of Drvenik.
The main roads are good and the motorway is excellent but the country roads are often narrow and traffic can be heavy during the peak season. With this in mind consider not hiring a car immediately and see how you get on. You can always hire one for specific outings.
