Historic Bridges, Vrboska
Walk, Sites of historic interest: bridges and architecture
From the third bridge you can complete the circuit by walking west to the edge of the of the town where you can cross a modern road bridge across the channel, which by this point is little more than a dry drainage ditch.
The whole route should take no more than a 20-30 minutes and is well worth while to get a feel for the town and why it is called little Venice. Again do not expect to be wowed by the large and formal architecture you get in the vicinity of St Marks Sq in the real Venice, but look out for the nice details (windows, doors and carvings) that augment the traditional dwellings from this part of the Adriatic.
Vrboska can be accessed by road (car or bus) and is an important anchorage/mooring on the north shore of Hvar with an ACI marina and Town quay. Wander freely through the streets and alleys of the town
