Croatia Online - Trogir

We’ve extolled the virtues of Trogir in previous postings and it certainly has a lot going for it. Unesco protected, the lovely old town is squashed onto its own little island, between the mainland and the larger island of Čiovo, to which it is joined by road bridges. In its centre there are all the cafes, restaurants, souvenir shops and boutiques you could wish for, not to mention an all year round, virtually 24/7, fruit and vegetable market, a fish market, plenty of supermarkets, the grand cathedral and plenty of entertainment, particularly in the summer.

Trogir is an all year round destination. Some may find it too busy in the summer with the traffic over the bridges sometimes stretching for a mile or so as people leave the Čiovo beaches in the afternoon. However it’s the perfect place for an off season visit. It’s just a fifteen minute drive from Split Airport, there are plenty of good quality hotels, including a clutch of new ones, and there’s a wealth of history to absorb as well as the buzz of the cafes on the waterfront promenade (riva) to watch the world go by from.

If you are thinking of a holiday in Trogir, check out Portal Travel Agency’s website - Given the myriad of hotel, apartment, travel and excursion options it helps to have a friendly local to guide you through the process and Portal offers you exactly that. They know which local hotels suit which tastes and pockets and run a number of special offers at different times of the year. Their smart professional offices are bang on the Riva and they’re owner managed, rather than part of one of the huge chains, so can be flexible enough to tailor make your holiday to suit. That flexibility extends to the range and type of excursions on offer. As well being able to offer all the normal excursions, they have an eight seater people carrier which can be made available to groups, couples or even individuals for special trips or transfers. On top of that, their web site is comprehensive and up to date and you’ll also be able to buy your copy of Time Out’s Visitors Guide to Croatia in their offices!

It’s not often we find a Croatian travel agency that’s a little bit different from the norm, and this one certainly is. Try it and you’re likely to get a holiday in Trogir that suits your pocket, your entertainment needs, your taste in accommodation and gives you the inside track on what’s happening in the area.
