Sightseeing in Trogir
Let's start with sightseeing. In the Old Town, we recommend you to visit Trogir's Cathedral with its exquisite, Romanesque doors made by Master Radovan. You do not need to be an art historian to notice the beauty and the value of this masterpiece.

Furthermore, view from the Tower Bell is a special treat. You can climb it for a small fee (it is included in the entry to the Cathedral). It is a bit narrow to climb the steps but from the top, you can see the whole area and that is really exquisite.

Kamerlengo fortress is our second choice for sightseeing in Trogir. It is a historic fortress and a castle with another grand view. Once upon a time, it served as housing for the Venetian military troops. During the summer many tourist events take place inside. Feel free to check the schedule at the official website of the Trogir Tourist Board.

Finally, Cippiko palace is also worth a visit. It is situated just opposite the Trogir Cathedral and it has beautiful windows.All these culture sites are situated downtown and that is where you will find the best restaurants in Trogir as well.

Medena beach near the hotel Medena
Also worth a visit especially if you are having a family holiday with kids is the Medena beach near hotel Medena with plenty of beach and entertainment activities for the whole family.
Ethno eco-village Škopljanci Radošić
And finally, something different to recommend is the Ethno eco-village Škopljanci in Radosic which is near Trogir, but totally different from the sea destination as it is situated in the hinterland. There you can see The Dalmatian hinterland village as it once was and also enjoy the wonderful nature around you.
