Starting the tour from Vis town, we get on the road to Komiža town, a charming little fisherman’s town on the south side of Vis Island.
After a pleasant drive and spectacular panoramic views, we arrive to Komiža. A short walk down the waterfront leads us to the main square with a beautiful Venetian style villa called Zonko’s Palace.
We continue exploring the town following its main street called Ribarska ulica, or in translation The Fisherman’s Street, and the narrow alleys that bring us to the Fisherman’s Museum, a fortress built in the 16th century.
We continue our way through the centuries old vineyards reaching the famous Tito’s Cave. Tito was a partisan leader in the Second World War. About 200 steps take us up to the first cave (used as a meeting point of Tito and his allies – British and Americans) and then another 100 take us to the second Cave where he used to work and sleep.
The tour continues to a small (organic) agricultural farm house in the village of Podšpilje for some local food and wine tasting. Continuing through the center of the island we come to the biggest valley, where there used to be a Royal British Airfield in Second World War (the pillars with red and white stripes that used to mark the runway can still be seen).
Arriving at the top of the hill called Križ / The Cross, the road takes us back to Vis town, offering picturesque panoramic views on the whole bay of Vis.
