Explore the Old Town
The old town of Split makes a great spot to explore. With a maze of streets and cobblestoned lanes surrounding Diocletian's Palace, it's just the place to spend time rambling around. Look out for the People's Square (Narodni Trg) at the heart of the Old Town, and take out time to admire the old town clock, which also makes an Insta-worthy shot. Plenty of cafes and restaurants spill out into the square and make fun spots to hang around with friends and family.
