There is a lovely waterfront to walk and explore with interesting stores and restaurants, This area is known as the Croatian Riviera and in summer can get oppressively busy. Just behind the waterfront is... More

Visit Split by day and night! Tour the Old Town, see and climb stairs, winding streets. Nightlife is abundant. We happened upon a very popular concert (Rock) with colorful lighting, excellent performers, and vibrant energy--and this was our only night in town!

History built on history, century on century...good food and a wonderful atmosphere. Nice shopping, too! But beware of the ferry ride to Hvar if it is rough seas!!!

I had the great opportunity to visit this area in September. Everything about it was wonderful...the food, sites, natural beauty, history, music, drinks. For those who love humanities, I guarantee that all of ones senses were put into action. I would highly suggest that everyone visit this wonderful region of the world someday. Croatia is amazing, as are its people!

Beautiful architecture and interesting history, it doesn't talk long to walk the old town but it's very charming and we spent each day wandering through the side streets finding new shops and cafes.

Walking through Old town was nice. There's tons of shopping and restaurants to visit. There's also the Palace, which is a unique visit. We enjoyed eating at local restaurants, people watching, and exploring the ancient sites. You could spend a good half day wandering through Old Town, but don't need more than a full day. Getting out to the islands... More

We started our visit with a guided walking tour of Diocletian's Palace built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian as a retirement palace. Part of it has since been converted into the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Split. It was fascinating to walk through what used to be the cellars. These are in a fantastic state of preservation and one reason for... More

Old Split is so beautiful & full of history, the Diocletian Palace, St. Domnius Cathedral, the ruins, narrow alleys with table & seats & cafes, the promenade were you can just seat & watch the people & boats & enjoy a coffee or a cool drink, so much to see & do. If you have luggage you can hire a... More
