Please note that the following itinerary is an example, as all of our journeys are custom-made.
International flight arrival into Split, Croatia’s second-largest city. As you exit the secured area, you will be greeted by your personal guide and taken by private transfer to your hotel located in the heart of the Diocletian’s Palace. Your boutique hotel, with exposed ancient walls from the three adjacent palaces combining Roman, Gothic and Renaissance styles, is the perfect jumping off point for your Dalmatian experience.
After settling in to your accommodations, enjoy a light walking tour through the old city, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first inhabitant of Split was the Roman emperor Diocletian who began building his palace in around 293 AD. Slowly, the town overgrew the walls of the palace as well as its rulers who ranged from Croatian and Hungarian kings to the Venetian administration and Austro-Hungarian monarchy, each leaving a significant imprint on what is today a buzzing, exuberant city. Explore Split’s living monuments including the Peristyle, the Cathedral of St. Domnius, and the basement hallways of the Palaces.
In the evening, enjoy a delicious meal by the harbor as you admire the dramatic coastal mountains which lay as the perfect back drop to the turquoise waters of the Adriatic.
