Split dolce vita embodies the beauty of architecture and stone palaces, fragrant gardens and white stone arches, reaches its fullness in the winter when the city bathed in the sea and winter sun, spreads its ancient doors to visitors to introduce them to the magic of Advent.
Day 1 Friday:
Assistance and private transfer from Split airport to the city centre followed by short panoramic drive through the city. Overnight at your centrally located hotel.
Day 2 Saturday:
After buffet breakfast guided tour of Split (approx 2 hours). There’s no doubt Diocletian’s Palace is the top must-see attraction in Croatia’s second biggest city –Split. This UNESCO protected World Heritage Site is actually the heart of the whole city – almost two thousand years old, the enormous palace exists today as a ”living monument” – meaning it’s dotted with quaint shops, galleries, cafes, restaurants and people actually live and work within its old walls. And that’s what makes it really special – it’s an ancient Roman palace absolutely integrated into the everyday life and doings of Split and its people. The Riva, a marble-white and palm-lined connection of Split and the Adriatic is everyone’s favorite spot for socializing, coffee-drinking or just idle sitting on one of the comfy benches which face the sea. Riva is full of life throughout the day, especially during the summer, and you’ll always find people strolling along or sitting in one of the cafes. So, if you want to get a feeling of the local everyday ”buzz” be sure to grab your spot and you’ll soon experience first hand how important and irresistible is the coffee culture in Croatia. Marjan hill, often referred to as the ”green lungs of the city”, is a big forest park located close to the city center and fully equipped with walking, hiking and jogging trails. It’s a great choice for everyone who prefers less-crowded, wild beaches and thick pine tree shade. Moreover, if you’re looking for a picture-taking paradise, Marjan is your place! It offers stunning views of both Split and the surrounding islands. Marjan also hides some interesting historical sights such as old Jewish cemetery and 15th century monasteries which are actually built into the hill.
