Split – The Terracotta Charms of Dalmatia
Split will win you over from first glance as terracotta tiles slope towards the shimmering Adriatic. White stone facades shine in the sun to juxtapose with super yachts and a tree-lined promenade. The streets are narrow and confusing, yet they have a charm that keeps you exploring. Everything emanates from Diocletian’s Palace, a grand centerpiece that was once the center of the world in the early 4th century. Roman Emperor Diocletian built the palace as his place of leisure, utilizing the natural protection provided by mountains surrounding the bay. Centuries later, and the palace still stands surrounded by a city of old-world beauty. After a private airport transfer, the day is free for you to explore the city and orientate yourself with the Croatian experience.
