21000, Split, Croatia
SplitSince you arrive in Split late in the evening on the third day of your cruise, you’ll wake up the next morning with a full day to explore Croatia’s second largest city. Split, like some other Croatian cities, is a perfect blend of modernity and tradition. Azamara’s sightseeing drive will take you to Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the world’s most imposing Roman monuments. Dating from the 4th century, today scores of restaurants and shops flourish within the ancient site. You’ll also travel along historical, cobblestone streets graced with Romanesque and Gothic churches. Or you may choose instead to head to the nearby island of Trogir which has been described as an open-air museum of ancient monasteries and grand palaces. Whether you decide to stay in town or join an excursion to a nearby destination, with a late-night departure on your second day in Split, you’ll have time to have dinner before returning to Azamara Pursuit and continuing your Croatian odyssey.
