Croatia's second largest city with a 1,700 year history, Split remains one of the Adriatic's most fascinating ports and is an important link to many of the nearby islands. It is home to a wealth of museums and other cultural assets, including one of the world's most impressive Roman monuments, the Diocletian's Palace, a dramatic UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fine standard of quality accommodation along with the reliable Dalmatian sunshine ensures a Split holiday will be a memorable experience.
Home to a wide range of flora and fauna, its series of tiered turquoise lakes, connected by gushing waterfalls and cascades in the forested heart of Croatia, make for an unforgettable setting for you to explore. Wooden walkways and bridges snake around the fringes of the lakes offering spectacular views in this UNESCO Heritage Site. Open all year round, you are not limited to visiting Plitvice in the summer season.
This ancient regional capital boasts Roman ruins, stunning medieval churches and interesting restaurants. There are a number of blue flag beaches, making Zadar an attractive location for a spot of sunbathing for the beach-goer. It’s also well placed for day trips to a number of its neighbouring islands, especially Dugi Otok. Zadar is also famous for its spectacular sunsets which are credited as being the best in Croatia.
This is sample itinerary. All our holidays are flexible therefore you can tailor your holiday to suit you.
Arrive at Split Airport, where a private transfer will meet you in arrivals and take you directly to your chosen Split Hotel. Head out to the Diocletian Palace and explore this fantastic old town
Another of Croatia’s UNESCO sites, Trogir is a very picturesque town, not far from Split, offering a rich history, plenty of culture and excellent food. This historic town evolved within its medieval city walls, on a small island connected by bridges to both the mainland and the island of Ciovo. Trogir is very easy to get to from Split. There are regular coach services from the main bus station throughout the day and in summer there’s also a passenger ferry that takes around one hour.
Covering 142 square metres, this is an area of outstanding natural beauty. It’s famous for its magnificent waterfalls, including the famous Skradinski Buk, a collection of 17 waterfalls that range in height of 45 metres. Easily accessible by coach or an organised excursion, it's a perfect day trip from Split.
We highly recommend this day trip. Head to Hvar by catamaran, duration 1 hour. Spend the day exploring this chic, vibrant and historic location. head to the fortress for unbelievable views, take a trip to the local islands or simply relax. It's up to you!
Pick up your hire car from Split or take an organised transfer to this superb national park. Spend your time exploring the wooded walkways and bridges that wind around the edge of lakes.
Travel by hire car or private transfer to your chosen Zadar hotel, check in, then spend the rest of the day exploring this delightful city. Full of history, Zadar's old town has lots of sights to see, including the Sun Salutation and Sea Organ.
Located only 30 miles from Zadar the Paklenica N.P. is a karst river canyon which is great for hiking, with trails of varying lengths. On your visit you will be amazed by the many rock climbers scaling the walls of the canyon. Paklenica is very accessible by bus to Starigrad Paklenica (1hr), or by car (50 mins).
A maze of winding streets leading to pretty squares and the beautiful cathedral of Sveti Jakov (St James) are two reasons why Sibenik shouldn’t be overlooked as a day trip from Zadar. The cathedral was built in the 15th century and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offering an elaborate mix of styles, including its dome that was inspired by Brunelleschi’s in Florence. It’s easy to get to Sibenik from Zadar with regular coaches departing throughout the day (duration is 1 hour 15 mins).
