Destination guide

Soak up Roman history and art galleries from Split villas

Split is the second-largest city in the country, and it's packed full of adventure all kinds of people can enjoy. You'll find historical sites like Diocletian's Palace, which dates back 17 centuries, along with the Cathedral of Saint Domnius. Additionally, Split is home to the Meštrović Gallery, where you can see stunning works of art from the eponymous sculptor. For more modern attractions, you can visit the local harbour known as Riva for high-end shops and restaurants. Villas here tend to be quite varied, but anything near the water or with historical value is going to lean more toward the luxurious side.

 
Things to do

Attractions near your holiday rental in Split

You'll find all manner of enchanting attractions within easy reach of your Split holiday rental. Top of the agenda for many is Diocletian's Palace, a mesmerising UNESCO World Heritage Monument. Constructed in the 4th century AD, this sprawling fortress-like structure sits at the epicentre of the old town, with a large number of locals living and working within its imposing walls. The striking contrast between ancient grandeur and modern city life makes this a unique sight to behold. The Cathedral of Saint Domnius is another must-see. Constructed in the 4th century and consecrated at the turn of the 7th century, it's widely believed to be the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world with an intact original structure. The ancient main building is adorned with a Romanesque bell tower – climb to the top for unbeatable panoramic views.

Activities

Things to do near Split holiday homes

Split has proven to be even more irresistible to international visitors since it has been used as a filming location for one of the world's biggest TV shows, Game of Thrones. Friendly local guides will be all too happy to show you the spots where your favourite scenes were shot. For a little self-indulgence, head to one of the region's world-renowned wineries and sample crisp whites and full-bodied reds whilst overlooking a verdant vineyard. Despite its quaint old-world vibe, Split is surprisingly lively after dark, with al fresco bars where you can toast the sunset with an ice-cold beer, and pulsing clubs where you can dance until the early hours.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Split holiday homes

Split holiday rentals are in particularly high demand throughout the peak summer season of June to August, when days are typically dry, hot and sunny, with reliably clear blue skies. If you can be flexible with your dates, you may prefer to visit in late spring or early autumn. Temperatures are still gloriously warm, and you may find it easier to land a great deal on accommodation. Split's climate is one of the finest in Europe, with very mild winters. However, if you're visiting at this time of year, you'd be wise to pack warm clothes and something waterproof.

Natural features

Blissful beaches and wonderful waterfalls

Split's best-known attractions may be man-made, but Mother Nature has also worked her magic in and around the city. On the outskirts of town you'll find picturesque pebble beaches, offering direct access to gentle, crystal-clear waters, ideal for splashing around in. If you feel like really getting away from it all, Split is less than 20 minutes by car from the lush, unspoilt Krka National Park. Its star attraction is a series of thundering waterfalls and shimmering swimming lakes.
