Vis has retained a rather special charm, embodying the phrase “the Mediterranean as it once was”. Near Vis is the small island of Ravnik with the Green cave (entrance fee paid locally). Named after the unique greenish light that reflects off the sea from a hole in the top of the cave. Expect a short swim stop (depending on the weather conditions) and then head to the town of Vis for an overnight stay. Vis was developed near the remains of ancient Issa, the first urban center in Croatia, formed by the Greeks in the 4th century BC. Visit the remains of the Roman Baths, City Museum, or take a walk and enjoy the view of the beautiful Villae Rusticae along the seafront. (B, L)
