How to Spend 2 Days in Split

How to Spend 2 Days in Split

Split’s unique blend of natural scenery, historic landmarks, and vibrant culture makes it a popular destination, but ticking off its highlights can be tricky in just two days. Here are our top tips for optimizing your 48 hours in the city.

Day 1: Sightsee in the City

**Morning:**Begin by familiarizing yourself with Split’s streets and landmarks, starting early to beat the crowds. Tours typically combine Old Town highlights, such as Diocletian’s Palace, with outlying attractions, such as Marjan hill. Whether you prefer fatigue-free bus transfer, active bike exploration, or an immersive walking experience, you have options.

**Afternoon:**After lunch, it’s time to personalize your itinerary. If you’re into history and culture, Split’s galleries, museums, and churches are a must. Photographers can climb the cathedral’s bell tower or explore the harbor for unique panoramas, while alternative sightseers can take a stroll around the less-touristic Varoš suburb. 

**Night:**Sunset cruises are ideal for unwinding after a busy day on the mainland and often include a complimentary aperitif. Alternatively, after-dark tours of the Split coastline provide a different perspective of the city, with opportunities to night swim, snorkel, kayak, or cliff jump typically included.

Day 2: Explore Beyond Split

**Morning:**Spend your morning exploring the Adriatic, zipping between islands by speedboat or taking it easy on a sailing trip. Alternatively, gain insight into Dalmatian culture on a tour of a nearby island. Land lovers can head inland for canyoning or 4x4 safari experiences. Tours typically include round-trip transfer.

**Afternoon:**Most tours continue into the afternoon, often with lunch included. If you find yourself with time to spare, set off on foot or bike to discover Split’s scenic beaches. Trstenik and Kašjuni are both easily accessible from town, and offer a relaxed alternative to the often-crowded Bačvice.

**Night:**Conclude with a glimpse into Split’s nightlife, taking advantage of evening tours to discover local bars in the city suburbs or explore the center’s lively pubs and clubs. Be aware that after midnight, the party tends to continue outside the Old Town, so bring change for a taxi.
