SPLIT, CROATIA — TUESDAY, MAY 1: 10am – 6pm

There’s no doubt that Roman emperor Diocletian’s palace (UNESCO World Heritage Site), as assimilated and repurposed as it is, is Split’s crown jewel. You can spend a day exploring it, strolling the waterfront, and rambling in Split’s open air market. Croatia’s countryside, though, is what lingers in your memory. Consider a visit to Trogir, a tiny island and UNESCO World Heritage site whose Greek-era layout, Romanesque churches, and Renaissance and Baroque buildings are an example of urban continuity. Take a riverboat on the rural Cetina River and let time flow by. Travel to Sibenik and see the Cathedral of St. James (Sv. Jakova), a UNESCO World Heritage structure noted for its fusion of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Save a little time for lunch sure to reflect the historic Italian influence as well as Slavic tradition.
