A unique city with a fitting name: Split is literally split between guarding its unique history and way of life and opening up to the inquisitive world. Exploring Split means being enthralled with the locals, or amazed by how a Roman Emperor’s palace turned into a bustling city, or even smitten by the sea and mountains surrounding it. Or any combination of these on our Split photo tour.
Spending time just in the UNESCO-protected Diocletian’s Palace is an excellent choice. Narrow streets, broad basements, layers of history and culture, fine dining and lively atmosphere will feed any photographers camera with attractive images. But do go beyond, climb the Marjan hill offering excellent lookouts over the city and port, nearby islands and chain of mountains.
Split is a bustling Mediterranean port, with its own twists and stories. Out of tourist season, the architecture of the city core stands out with less crowds on the streets, but it is those crowds that generate in season the color, the action, the strife many photographers look for.
Join our local guides and let them immerse you in what Split is really about.
Split sits roughly in the middle of the Croatian Adriatic Sea coastline. It is the largest passenger port in Croatia, ideally situated to explore Dalmatian islands. It is also a frequent stop for any tour of Croatia starting either in Zagreb or Dubrovnik.
Despite being Croatia’s second-largest city, the tourism season is when the place really lights up. Split is also ideal for day tours to islands Like Hvar or Brač, national parks such as Krka or Biokovo, and even cross-border destinations such as Mostar. Quicker trips include Trogir and Šibenik towns.
Out of season it is easy to find perfect accommodation at an acceptable price within the very walls of Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, perfect to settle in and enjoy everything the place has to offer.
