Split and Dubrovnik are two of the top cities to visit in Croatia, both of which are not-to-be-missed, although they each have their own charms. Split is bigger, the country’s second-largest city famous for Diocletian’s Palace, a vast complex that dates back to the early 3rd century, home to some of the most well-preserved Roman architecture in the world. It also provides a more authentic side of local life, with a fabulous market where residents and chefs often purchase their ingredients for preparing delicious meals. Dubrovnik is renowned for its walled historic center, a spectacular compact area with many gothic- and Renaissance-style buildings you might have discovered while watching the hit series “Game of Thrones” where it served as King’s Landing. This incredible 7-night tour will bring you to both, with multiple private guided tours included. Plus, you’ll enjoy a unique oyster-tasting experience and the opportunity to explore neighboring Montenegro on a day trip.

    Day by Day Itinerary

    Day 1 Split: Arrival to Split


    It all begins with your arrival at Split International Airport where you’ll be met with a warm welcome from our driver who will provide a transfer to your hotel, just a two-minute stroll from Diocletian’s Palace. You’ll explore it on a tour tomorrow, but you might want a preview by walking the ancient streets on your own after checking in. Many of the centuries-old buildings now serve as independent shops, galleries, boutiques, cafes, wine bars, and restaurants, providing plenty to explore. If you want to stretch your legs a bit more, climb to the top of nearby Marjan Hill for a fabulous bird’s-eye view of the city.

Returning to Split, take a walking tour of the historic Old Town, including Diocletian’s Palace with its impressive Roman architecture.

Once there, embark on a guided walking tour of landmarks like St. Tryphon Cathedral, the Clock Tower, Square of Arms, Buca, and Pima palaces.
