Mesmerising history and spectacular scenery come together on holidays in Split. Combined with an inviting Mediterranean climate and twice weekly summer flights, Croatia’s charm is simply irresistible.
Within the walled centre you’ll find the impressive Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and dozens of bars, restaurants and shops that spill from the atmospheric old town. Soak up Split’s glorious sunshine, while sipping croatian red wine along the Riva or play traditional ball game, picigin, on Bacvice beach. Take in the spectacular views from Marjan Hill or hire a bicycle and discover the hidden beaches of the Dalmatian Coast. We’d recommend a daytrip to glamourous Hvar or idyllic Korcula, two of the islands that make up the Split archipelago.
