Sample fine wines against the azure of Croatia’s Adriatic coast in Split
The small town of Split in Croatia is one of our favourite destinations. Located on Croatia’s Adriatic coast, Split offers a bustling restaurant and cafe culture, in a town steeped with history.
A holiday in Split offers access to some of Croatia’s most historic coastline. The spectacular Roman Palace of Diocletian, built between the 3rd and 4th centuries AD, dominates the town centre. While its location on the Adriatic makes Split ideal for sun-seekers, it is far from your average beach resort. Beyond the palace, the town offers a maze of narrow streets and stunning views from the peace and quiet of the nearby Jewish Cemetery.
You can hop on a ferry to the lively island of Hvar. Its main town, of the same name, is home to one of Croatia’s finest wineries. To ensure the best experience, we’ll book your transport and an afternoon of wine tasting with expert tuition from a Croatian wine connoisseur.
From Split you can also visit the striking island of Brač, Croatia’s exquisite Plitvice Lakes National Park and Trogir, which offers impressive architecture and fortifications. One of Europe’s lesser-known tourist destinations, a tailor-made holiday in Split will give you a true taste of the Adriatic with the added bonus of fewer crowds.
