Split Vacations & Tours
Split is a Croatian city where modern, cosmopolitan life and ancient history exist side-by-side. The second largest city in Croatia, Split is nestled along a bustling waterfront, with ancient ruins dating to the time of the Roman Empire.
Diocletian’s Palace, constructed in 305 AD for Roman Emperor Diocletian is the most famous landmark in Split and a UNESCO World Heritage site making it one of the best things to do in Split. Built as a retirement property for the emperor, Diocletian’s Palace is constructed of beautiful white stone. When you visit, you’ll be able to explore the palace remains, stroll through the Cardo, which is one of the main streets of the palace, and view the cellar, made famous by Game of Thrones.
Within Diocletian’s Palace is the Sveti Duje or Cathedral of St. Domnius. The view of the town from the bell tower is spectacular.
Split has a beautiful waterfront harbor area called Riva Promenade. Take a leisurely stroll along it, enjoying the view of the Adriatic, and explore the many shops, cafes, and restaurants in the area.
Split Green Market is very close to the entrance of Diocletian’s Palace. It is filled daily with fresh locally sourced products like fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheeses. Explore the Ivan Meštrović Gallery to learn more about Croatia’s most famous 20th Century sculptor.
Bacvice Beach is only a 5-minute walk from Split. Enjoy the sandy beach, shallow water, and if you like, water slides. This quaint beach is lined with cafes, bars, and nightclubs, and is a favorite destination of the locals. You’ll love it too.
