A few days in Split

We are looking at a few days in Split around early October.

We are looking at self catering for some meals as my wife is a vegan. Don't want to stay in all the time, so we will try our luck out the rest of the time. I have looked at Divota and Villa Kastel, locations seem good and they seem to have kitchenettes. There seems to be a good market near the palace?

If you could visit one island by ferry from Split, which one?

Is the best way to Dubrovnik by bus or ferry to Korcula and bus to Dubrovnik?

Will you stay on an island or day trip to one from Split?

I think it will just be a day trip and keep a room in Split.

Then I suggest a day trip to Hvar Town.

In Split, the main open market for food is adjacent to the old town's eastern wall.

To Dubrovnik, the fastest way is by bus, definitely. And I think that bus schedules do not allow you to make the trip in one day by ferry plus bus, so you'd have to stay overnight in Korcula...

Good to know. The bus it is, should be a nice way to see the country.

It's a great journey - you're high up in the bus and you will be on the right side of the road so you will have the best views. Make sure you sit on the right side of the bus.

Divota is a great choice! It is maybe 10 minutes across the Palace to green market and it is closer to the fish market.

Several good vegan places to eat: Makrovega just outside the Palace, UpCafe, near the Atrium hotel and a new place just opposite the harbor where the ferries are....but going to the green market for veggies, fruit and cheese is a joy. New this year is a seaplane service to Dubrovnik, right from the Split waterfront. 30 minutes vs. 4.5 hours on the bus! The cost should be around 100E versus 30E-40E for the bus, but if it's time you want to save, look into European Coastal Airlines.....flights are daily, but schedule not yet posted.

Hey, that's great. My wife really appreciates your input. Myself, I am looking forward to seafood . the market(s) sound great, reminds me of Nice.

The plane is a great idea, but we are the type of people who enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
