24 HOURS IN SPLIT
There’s a real buzz about Split. It could be the incredible sunshine, or the amazing food, or the history, or the views, or the beautiful people. There are worlds within worlds and a walk around Diocletian’s Palace reveals modern bars an ancient Egyptian artifacts. The foreshore is exciting with fishing boats and tourists coming and going out to the islands, while back in land a walk through alleyways will get you lost, but not too lost, and most likely lost with stunning views.
8am Cheese, yoghurt and bureks are breakfast staples in Croatia. Fill up and find a comfy café to drink coffee as the locals do. That is, slowly.
10am Start exploring by foot. A serious walk up Marjan Hill will reward you with views out across the Adriatic.
12pm There’s not too many places in the world it’s fun to get lost in but the Diocletian’s Palace is the exception. The ancient walls surround the heart of the city and inside Cafes and restaurants wrestle for space with washing hanging up to dry.
2pm If you’re ready to take a dip in the sea, head to Bacvice, a thin strip of sand along the coast. There are lots of cafes around to rehydrate at when your frolicking is done.
8pm Any time from sunset well into the night you’re spoilt for choice for seafood, cold beer and ice cream. Not necessarily in that order. For really good seafood find a restaurant near the fish markets. It doesn’t get much fresher.
