Split at a Glance: A wheelchair-accessible break in Diocletian’s City (all year round)

3 days/2 nights, for 6 – 14 people, from 165 € , tailor-made programs for less than 6 people

DAY 1

A welcome at Split Airport followed by a half an hour’s drive to Radisson Blu Resort, a 4 star hotel situated just a few steps away from the beach and only three kilometers from the town center. For the first day in Split we recommend a stroll towards the Riva, an impressive and bustling waterfront with the beautiful palm tree promenade full of friendly restaurants and cafés. As the most popular and most important public place in Split, the Riva offers both a lively communal entertainment and a relaxing atmosphere of the serene Adriatic Sea with the many ships sailing by. After some mandatory chilling that the local people call “fjaka” (a phlegmatic respite from the pace of everyday life, considered a state in between times), one is bound to go behind the town walls and turn to the historic center of Split, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of inspiring beauty and immense cultural value. A cozy atmosphere of rambling through the network of narrow meandering streets surrounding Diocletian’s Palace (305 AD), one of the best preserved monuments of Roman architecture in the world (and one of the fictional sites of the tremendously popular Game of Thrones), takes you back to the ancient times of the city of Spalatum and the Empire at its peak. For the first evening in the city we recommend a stroll down Marmont Street, a shopping hub and arguably the most beautiful street in Split (named after Napoleon’s marshal Marmont, who is largely responsible for the urbanization of Dalmatian cities), and a cozy dinner in one of Split’s renowned restaurants and taverns (Bajamonti Restaurant, Adriana Restaurant, Central Café and Restaurant, Marul Tavern or Favola Tavern).

DAY 2

A breakfast at the hotel followed by a guided tour through the 1700 years of Split’s history art and architecture, including the accessible areas inside Diocletian’s Palace (including the cellars) and around the Cathedral of Saint Domnius (the 7th century monument and the oldest Catholic cathedral in the world that remains in use in its original structure), the Peristyle, the Statue of Gregory of Nin, the Golden Gate, the Vestibul, the Riva, the City Clock (uniquely with 24 instead of 12 digits) etc. Diocletian’s Palace still holds the bones of Saint Domnius, a 3rd-century Bishop of Salona and the patron of the city, who was beheaded by Diocletian in 304 AD and whose relics were later moved to the cathedral built inside the palace in their final twist of fate. For personal leisure activities we recommend visits to the lively local markets, as well as Matejuška Port and the adjoining residential area of Veli Varoš, where you can feel the true spirit of the city and enjoy some Dalmatian culinary delights in one of many casual restaurants and taverns in the vicinity. Also one should visit the district of Bačvice (with the liveliest of the town’s beaches and a lovely cove) and some accessible museums like Croatian Maritime Museum or Split’s House of Sports, which pays a tribute to famous Split’s athletes (like Goran Ivanišević, Toni Kukoč, Ratko Rudić and many others). For the second evening in Split we recommend some vibrant musical experience in one of Split’s accessible rock and dance clubs (like Vanilla or Clo Bar), where you can feel dynamic and energetic nature of the city.

DAY 3

A breakfast at the hotel followed by a half an hour’s farewell drive to Split Airport.
