Here is everything you need to know to make your trip to Split unforgettable.
1. Research travel requirements in advance
In the world of COVID-19, we are all continually needing to double-check and triple-check travel requirements beforehand. Most countries will still require proof of a negative COVID-19 test before being allowed to enter through the borders, which needs to be planned out a day or two in advance of your actual arrival. So make sure to add this to your to-do list when preparing to travel to Split, as you will want to make sure you have all the additional tests and paperwork required.
2. Plan out how you’ll get there
There are numerous ways to get to Split. If you’re traveling from overseas, then you will likely be needing to first land at a major international airport in Europe. Some of the closest are in Munich and Paris. From there, you can easily hop on a train and head to Split. If your trip to Split is part of a bigger trip or arriving before you check in and you don’t want to be weighed down by your luggage, consider using luggage storage Split services so that you can roam the streets and coastline of Split freely.
3. Figure out where to stay
There are multiple types of accommodation in Split. But if you want to do it right, we recommend renting an apartment over an actual hotel. You will not only get more value for your money spent, but you will also be able to stay in some really historical and beautiful places that have unique touches to them. But of course, Split still has plenty of hotels and hostels should you choose to go down that route instead. The hardest choice to make when it comes to accommodation in Split is if you want an ocean view or a city view. The good news is, you can’t really choose wrong.
4. Explore by boat
One of the best ways to get a true appreciation for Split is to explore the coastline by boat. You will get treated to unique views and a deeper appreciation for how truly unique the city is. There are numerous tour companies that run day sailing trips, or you could even choose to island-hop on the ferry. One thing is for sure though, you will definitely not want to haul your luggage on board for the experience—so make sure you have secured a place to store it ahead of time.
5. Take a walking tour
Once you are back on dry land, make time to do a walking tour. The streets of Split are filled with rich history and you will best appreciate it by hearing it from a local guide. They will be able to point out landmarks you may have missed earlier and tell you stories that Google simply can not. Many of these tours are donation-based and go quite frequently, so it won’t be hard to be spontaneous with doing a walking tour here.
