How to Spend 1 Day in Split

How to Spend 1 Day in Split

Gaining an overview of Split’s colorful history, striking landscape, and rich culture can be tricky in just one day, but it is possible. Here are our top tips on how to optimize 24 hours in Croatia’s second city.

Morning: Explore the Old Town

Start early to beat the crowds and find your bearings in Croatia’s second-largest city. Learn about Split’s ancient history as you stroll through the labyrinthine Diocletian’s Palace or marvel at Saint Domnius Cathedral. Walking tours typically offer a more intimate experience, while Segway or bike tours ensure swift, seamless transfer, ideal for avoiding fatigue with a busy day ahead. Alternatively,Game of Thrones tours can match fictional landmarks with their real counterparts on a themed excursion, while independent travelers can take advantage of hop-on hop-off services to explore the Old Town and wider city at their own pace.

Afternoon: Enjoy the Landscape

After a spot of lunch in one of the trendy cafés dotting the Old Town, it’s time to cool off on the Adriatic. Whether you’re wild for water sports or serious about sailing, you have options. Private tours typically offer more-flexible departure times, which can be tailored to your individual needs; aim for late-afternoon departure to guarantee the best sunset views. Alternatively, land lovers can still enjoy an exhilarating afternoon adventure, with options including rock climbing on the Marjan hill or ATV exploration of the hinterland beyond.

Night: Experience the Culture

If you didn’t manage to catch sunset views on your afternoon excursion, you can always unwind on a sunset cruise, absorbing coastal vistas with an aperitif in hand. If you’re keen to tick off more Dalmatian highlights, take advantage of the city’s close proximity to Trogir, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or other UNESCO-listed towns, with some tours offering round-trip transfer for an evening excursion. However, Split’s own nightlight is worth experiencing. After dark, the city’s restaurants, bars, and clubs come into their own. From lively pub tours to fine-wine experiences, Split hosts something for everyone.
