From your hotel, your private transfer will take you around the top attractions of Croatia. From ancient city walls to majestic palaces and monasteries, this Croatian city is a genuinely charismatic destination worth discovering.

If you’re looking for a break from the rushing city lifestyle, then walking, running, jogging, climbing or riding a bike to Marjan (and its 3-kilometer area of Mediterranean pine forest) is the perfect thing to do for a relaxing time while being fairly close to the city center. Prepare yourself to find a completely different world within the city while enjoying a mesmerizing view of the entire city, the surrounding islands, and the nearby mountains of Mosor and Kozjak. In the evening, you can have your dinner at the hotel and go for a sound sleep.

Day 3: Take a tour to Diocletian’s Palace

Located in a bay on the south side of a short peninsula, the Diocletian’s Palace is an ancient palace built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian around the 4th-century AD and is today a UNESCO Heritage Site forming about half the old town of Split. Don’t misunderstand the word “Palace” used as “the retirement residence of the Diocletian”, as the structure has more likeness with a large fortress. Consequently, the ruins of this monumental structure can be found all over the city and you’ll have great times discovering the many secrets and stories behind this iconic place.

Day 4:  Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke full-day tour from Zagreb

Experience one of Croatia’s most scenic landscapes with this eventful day tour from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes and Rastoke historic village. In addition to the driving journey there, the tour will also take you on a sightseeing train ride, a cruise across Kozjak Lake and a fair deal of leisurely walking on your guided tour. On your travels, you’ll see traditional watermills and old-fashioned, riverside houses, picture-perfect waterfall, and the lower and upper lakes. Guided by a passionate and entertaining guide, this tour is fantastic value for money for getting a local’s insight into the natural beauty of the area.

Day 5: The Cathedral of Saint Domnius

It is located nearby the Archdiocese of Split-Makarska, the Cathedral of Saint Domnius, (Saint Duje’s Cathedral), is a beautiful Catholic cathedral in Split, consisting of a church formed from an Imperial Roman mausoleum. Built in AD 305 as the Mausoleum of Diocletian, this magnificent building is one of the best-preserved ancient Roman buildings and is also known as the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure (reconciling ancient pagan, Christian, Medieval and modern heritage).

Day 6: Take a visit to Peristil Square

Intended for Emperor Diocletian, Peristyle is the central square of the Diocletian’s Palace. Owing to its unique beauty made of red granite pillars (not only Roman, but also Egyptian influenced) and unusual acoustics, Peristyle became the ideal scenery for theater, but also for an urban concert and nightlife. Here you’ll like walking up the impressive stairs that lead to the domed Entry Vestibule and the entrance to Jupiter’s Temple.

Day 7: Departure

The time has arrived to say goodbye to all the city. Pack your bags and in the evening, visit the nearby market to buy some souvenirs for your friends and family. Call your private transfer in the morning that will drop you to the airport.
