Cruise to the Mediterranean Flower
When you’re in Split, you might want to consider bringing a pocketful of breadcrumbs so you can find your way back to the ship. The warren-like streets and alleyways of this ancient walled city can be confusing to navigate, but hey, sometimes getting lost is half the fun!
One place you have to find your way to, though, is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Diocletian’s Palace, which dates back to the 4th century. It’s just one amazing part within the walls of a historical complex that also houses 12th century churches, medieval fortifications, and 15th century Gothic palaces. So let intuition be your guide as you spend the day meandering through the cobblestone streets, while discovering the many restaurants, cafés, and shops that are tucked away in every nook and cranny.
Wander down to the water’s edge and stroll along the Riva, the spectacular white marble-esque promenade. Dalmatians (the people, not the 101 variety) are extremely fashionable people and this is the place to see and be seen, so get ready to strut your stuff.
And if you do lose your bearings amidst such an array of distractions, one of the friendly locals will be more than happy to point you in the right direction.Download An Explorer Guide +
