What You Can Expect

Split Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Discover Split on this day trip from Dubrovnik

Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and hop in the air-conditioned vehicle for the 3-hour journey up the stunning Dalmatian Coast to Split, Croatia's second-largest city. As your meander up the coast, drink in the eye-poppingly beautiful views of the coastline and learn about the history of the area from your guide.

In Split, take a 90-minute walking tour of the city, starting at Diocletian's Palace, a beguiling complex that is today part of the fabric of the city with shops and restaurants inside the former palace grounds. Head inside the palace (at own expense), a UNESCO-listed site, to get a closer look. Visit Peristyle Square and the Cathedral of St. Duje (St. Domnius), an octagonal-shaped structure that was originally meant to be Diocletian's mausoleum.

Listen to your guide regale you with tales of the eccentric Roman emperor, Diocletian, and see some spots where scenes from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones were filmed.

After the tour, take three hours to see Split on your own. Get some tips from your guide or set off to wander the streets, perhaps tuck into a hearty seafood lunch at a local restaurant (at own expense).

Eventually meet up with your guide and begin the ride back to Dubrovnik. The trip concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Fantastic tour. Tour guide 5 star. A little disappointed we only had 2 hours in split and looked at description of tour when got back to our hotel and it should have been longer so if you planning on going just be aware.

Day trip to Split 23/08/2016.

Split was a vibrant and touristic harbor town. The Diocletians Palace was a must thing to see!
I wasnt in my best condition that day but thanks to the driver and the guide from Dubrovnik I apologize for not remembering their names who were very accommodating and hospitable that made the whole trip very enjoyable.

Highly recommended!

Split is just so lovely - feels much more like a modern city than Dubrovnik does. Diocletian's Palace is very interesting and houses so many hip restaurants and stores as well. You really get a taste of the rest of Croatia outside of the mainly tourism-driven Dubrovnik namely the Croatian obsession with their football teams!. The prices were a bit cheaper than Dubrovnik, I'm guessing from the fewer tourists that go! The old town of Split is full of alleyways but has a completely different feel than Dubrovnik. If you can, you should try to go to the Plitvice Lakes from Split, we hear it's an unforgettable experience. Our driver Mario was very interesting as well, giving a background on the numerous towns we passed by on our 4 hour drive. Oliver was our city guide and he was very knowledgeable about all the landmarks within the walls. He also does an excellent Game of Thrones tour. Also, do eat outside the city walls near the Marjan region past the church! We had an excellent lunch there. Overall, this was one of our best experiences on our trip and we advise everyone to not miss the day trip to Split.

It was fantastic that there were only 4 including driver on this trip. Being able to stop when we wanted or needed to was great. Antonio, our driver, was terrific - personable, engaging and a pleasure to spend most of the day with.

Other than the palace, there is not much to see. We did enjoy the marina and lunch. It was a long bus ride from Dubrovnik.
