What to Expect
After getting picked up from your Dubrovnik hotel, get ready to be amazed by the beauty of Split. Split is the main cultural and economic center of Dalmatia and the second largest city in Croatia. The main hub of the old town is the famous Diocletian’s Palace constructed by Roman emperor Diocletian 1700 years ago. Today it is one of the best preserved examples of late Ancient architecture. Many remains from the Roman period, as well as from other past periods, can be seen in Split. The Peristil (emperor's square), the Cathedral of Split, the bell tower of St. Duje, and the Mestrovic gallery are the most famous among them.
The narrow passages and small streets of the city are vibrant and alive with the spirit of the Mediterranean and the numerous museums and galleries offer valuable artistic and historical collections. Visit Split and walk down the famous waterfront called Riva to feel the atmosphere of this beautiful city. A local expert guide will show you most important parts of Split in a walking tour. After the tour you will have time to explore Split on your own before returning to your comfortable minivan where you can relax on the drive back to Dubrovnik. On the drive back stop by the site of the road and buy some organic products like mandarins and honey.
