Split

Croatia
Split travel packages
The second largest city in Croatia. Combine the best of Dalmatia's laid back beach vibe with commerce and night life.
A popular destination for travelers in Croatia, Split was home to the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Seventeen centuries ago, Diocletian built the vast palace complex on Split's waterfront that still stands today, in order to retire near his hometown. Several of our accommodation options sit within the ancient walls. There's now an embankment in front of the palace, but the water used to go right up to the wall. It's on this man-made strip of land that you'll find the Riva, a bustling pedestrian promenade. This will be one of the highlights of your holiday in Split. You'll also find Split's UNESCO-listed Old Town within the walls. It's a pedestrian-only maze that is easy, but fun, to get lost in. Who knows what romantic cafés you'll find in the narrow streets? To get the most out of your time visiting Split, we recommend taking a tour with a local guide.
When you travel to Split, you'll see that it's a center for Dalmatian and Croatian culture. One of the Adriatic's most vibrant cities, it can also be one of the most delicious, thanks to ample Croatian food focusing on grilled meats and seafood. From restaurants to museums, plus beaches, cafes, and friendly locals, your Croatian vacation will be delightful thanks to a stop here. Staying in Split is also a good starting point for travel around Croatia. No wonder Split is such a popular Croatian vacation option, it has everything, from adventure to relaxation.

What we love about Split

Lidija

Trip Planner

What I love most about Split is that it's a city that has it all. A long and interesting history, ancient monuments, a small city centre built in a traditional stone style, but at the same time, the advantages of a big city - easily accessible transportation to anywhere, great shopping places, night clubs, and markets. Want a beach day? The beach is ten minutes away. Want a hiking/biking nature day? Marjan Hill is around the corner. Most of all, I love the city atmosphere and the relaxed way of life; the most used words here are "take it slow" and "no problem."

Sunny Split's laid back, homey atmosphere will make you wanna live there. I love people who are passionate about the city they live in, and you can this passion on every corner.

Split's hustle and bustle give it a true charm. Everything is loud, and the people are always friendly and smiling. Getting lost in the 'ghetto' as the locals like to call the center, is the best way to explore the town. Have a walk up to Marjan Hill for some amazing views, and treat yourself with a cold beer on Matejuska Pier while watching the sunset.

Where to stay in Split

With one exception, the Le Meridien resort, all the hand-picked Split accommodation options we offer are either inside or very close to the walls of Diocletian's Palace, with some of them even making use of the centuries-old stone walls of the Palace itself to form its own walls. Talk about staying in a piece of history! Our accommodation choices in Split range from cozy, centrally located 3-star hotels and apartments, to B&Bs and boutique 4-star hotels in historic buildings, plus a 5-star seafront resort for those who prefer to be away from the hum of the city. Once we start preparing your customized itinerary, we will present our recommended options for you to select from.
Luxury Resort Hotel
Resort-style hotel in peaceful surroundings with a pool and all the trappings you'd expect of a 5-star yet just a 15 minute walk to the action in Split's historic old town.
Central Luxury Apartments
A luxurious option in Split in the very heart of Diocletian's palace!
Small Heritage Hotel
A very nicely decorated and charming hotel within walking distance of the city center.

Things to do in Split

Split is ideally placed for an overnight stop to and from Hvar, and ferries leave from Split heading in many directions, but stay a little longer and you'll be surprised at what lays beyond those historic city walls. Day trips to Krka and Plitvice National Parks, rafting on the Cetina river, or even a day-long boat trip to several nearby islands are all options worth considering. When we send you your customized itinerary, you will be able to choose additional excursions to include in your vacation package.

The response time was always EXTREMELY fast. JayWay Travel did it all, all I had to do was show up, which was really important to us for our honeymoon. We met true local people that we never would have gotten to know without JayWay.

Truly the perfect experience. We didn't have to worry about logistics and were treated like royalty everywhere we went. Andrea answered every question we had. We couldn't have been happier.
