Cheap flights to Split

Split – a stylish city with thumping nightlife, lively beaches, plenty of tourist activities and simply stunning World Heritage sites.

Often overlooked among its fellow cities as a mere jumping off point for those travelling to the Dalmatian islands, there is much more to Split as this travel guide will tell you. Well, how many cities do you know that have a Roman palace built into the very heart of its old town? Diocletian’s sprawling palace is not only one of the best-preserved Roman buildings in the world, it’s also host to numerous restaurants, boutiques and charismatic homes. Walk the corridors and alleyways where emperors once trod as you go about your shopping – stunning! And while you’re at it why not pop up to the top of the St Domnius Cathedral for breathtaking views of the city and the surrounding islands.

Shopping


Subterranean Markets - The best place to shop for souvenirs in Split is in the voluminous subterranean vaults underneath Diocletian's Palace.


Fish Market - Watch the frenetic morning action and then join the workers for simple seafood in the adjacent pub or posh it up at the Nostromo restaurant (http://www.restoran-nostromo.hr/).


Subterranean Markets - Head underground beneath Diocletian's Palace to pick up some great souvenirs and presents at the myriad stalls.


Fish Market - This characterful fish market is home to all sorts of freshly landed Adriatic wonders. Enjoy them fried in the adjacent pub. Obrov 5.

Key Areas


Varos - The years peel back in this atmospheric old quarter just up the hill from Diocletian's Palace. It's not Roman history for a change, more Slavic fishermen who forged this village-like settlement.


Salona - Without Salona there would be no Split. The citizens abandoned in favour of Split, but there are evocative remnants of their lives.


Get up Marjan - Marjan Hill hands over Split and is a great place in spring to hike up and admire a view of both the city and the surrounding isles without the heat haze of summer.


Varos - This historic part of Split is often ignored by visitors. Don't be one of them - head up the slopes and lose yourself for a few hours in the backstreets.

Day Trips


Brac - While some of the Croatian islands virtually shut up shop for the winter local life keeps bashing along on Brac, thanks to the proximity to the city and the regular ferries. In autumn and winter this is the Dalmatian isle to head to.


Solta - Not as famous as glitzy islands such as Hvar and Brac, which means sleepy Solta gets far fewer visitors. A chilled out escape. Don't forget to bring a towel as there are plenty places to enjoy a wee dip.


Hvar Town - This town on the idyllic isle of Hvar is a favourite these days of the jet set, but it's much quieter in spring, allowing its gorgeous Venetian-era architecture to really shine.


Trogir - This remarkable historic town sits on small island near Split's airport, with the highlight its epic UNESCO World Heritage listed cathedral.
