Where To Stay In Split?
There are many different areas to stay in Split. The best area to stay in Split Croatia is the city centre. Within the city centre you have Diocletian’s Palace, the Old Town, and Split neighbourhoods like Bacvice and Varos Split to name a few.
I would definitely stay within the city centre, as you will have much better access to restaurants, the Riva and a nice atmosphere. Within the city centre, here are the best neighbourhoods in Split. Diocletian’s Palace is perhaps the most touristy area but it also has a charm about it. The Old Town includes Diocletian’s Palace and is still quite a busy area, but you have the beautiful architecture surrounding you. The hotels in Split Old Town are often in beautiful heritage buildings. Varos is an old neighbourhood with cute cobblestone streets and is much quieter than the Old Town. Bacvice is the area around Bacvice Beach, a popular beach in Split. This is a little further to walk into the Old Town so I’d stay here only if you wanted to stay at the beach.
Booking Accommodation In Split
When booking accommodation in Split, there are two main websites that I use.
Booking.com has some of the best prices and a large number of accommodation options available. We love using it for our travels.
I love seeing what’s available from Airbnb, from getting to stay with a local host or having your own place to yourself, there’s something for everyone.
