  • SPLIT, CROATIA CITY GUIDE

GETTING AROUND SPLIT

Split is very compact and best explored on foot, as the Old Town is closed to cars. Most neighborhoods are also accessible by walking from Old Town. Buses run regularly if you hope to venture further afield, and taxis are readily available—though they can be quite expensive. We recommend checking with your hotel concierge for advice on the best way to reach any particular destination. Explore more of Dalmatia through our Croatia hiking tours.

THINGS TO DO IN SPLIT

1. EXPLORE OLD TOWNMap of Split with highlight markers for guide locations

Our tour begins in Split, and on Day 1, a guided tour of Old Town includes Diocletian’s Palace and Peristyle, the cathedral of St. Domnius, and strolling the quaint squares. Of course, there is much more to see and do in Old Town, so head out to wander the streets, enjoy an apertif, and stop to explore as you like! While you’re relaxing, discover more less-traveled destinations in our Boundless Journeys European hiking tours.

2. RIVA WATERFRONT & GREEN MARKET

From Old Town, make your way to the cafe-lined Riva Promenade for a stroll along the coast. Visit the nearby market, Pazar, to see the many stalls of colorful, fresh produce and chat with locals.

3. MARJAN HILL

This recreational area is popular with locals for its many paths, beautiful views over the city, and the scattered churches and chapels around the hill.

4. GALLERIES AND MUSEUMS

Depending on interest, cultural highlights abound in Split—from maritime history to fine art to archaeology. Ivan Mestrovic, the most renowned Croatian sculptor of the 20th century, donated his property which became one of the most popular galleries in Split.
