Holiday Rentals in Split
Encounter Dalmatia at its finest in Croatia’s second city
There's hardly a district in Europe more ornate and fascinating than Diocletian's Palace, which reveals its layers of history right in the heart of Split. There are Byzantine relics mingling with gleaming columns, great Roman imperial halls wedged between bustling Croatian tavernas, and a beguiling array of seaside restaurants along the Riva harbour that sit in the shadow of the rugged Dinaric Alps. Boats purr in and out of sunny Split all summer long, ferrying travelers to Hvar and Korcula, or out to hidden coves along the pine-dressed Dalmatian Riviera. Split itself has plenty for a whole holiday though, from enthralling archaeological museums to wild nightlife spots to charming fishing quarters where the seafood is to die for.
Why book Split holiday rentals with ebookers?
This might be known as the gateway to the mega resorts and sprawling hotels of the Dalmatian Riviera, but the historic town itself is home to some fantastic Split holiday rentals. You'll get old medieval cottages hidden down side streets, or be able to bed down in Split holiday apartments overlooking the sparkling waters of the Riva promenade. You're also likely to get loads more space if you opt to go for holiday rentals in Split over a classic hotel, with many options coming with sunning terraces, private lounges, self-catering kitchens, and a multitude of rooms so the whole family can sleep under the same roof.
Top things to do in Split
From the adventurous to the soporific, Split is brimming with things to do. A journey through the stone-clad streets of UNESCO-tagged Diocletian's Palace is a must. It feels thrillingly surreal, as if the ruins of ancient Rome or Greece were suddenly alive again. If that gets you hungry for more history, you can gaze at the ancient relics of the Split Archaeological Museum, or – if you’ve worked up an appetite – just settle for local dumplings in a traditional Croatian eatery. The coast is another enticing attraction, so be sure to don the shades and flip flops and make for the seafood restaurants of the Riva promenade in the evening, or just spend your days lazing on the sandy stretch of the small but well-formed Bacvice Beach.
Getting around in Split
Split's whole historic core is eminently walkable. A good pair of shoes is required to navigate the crooked cobbled streets and alleys, but it's a real pleasure getting lost amidst this ages-old labyrinth. To speed things up, rental bikes can be had all over the town and are a particularly good option if you've got your eyes fixed on the glowing sandy beaches that pepper the coast on the eastern side. There are local buses too, which will be useful if your holiday apartments in Split are located in the new town, while hiring a car is great for excursions out along the beautiful Dalmatian Riviera.
