Walked around this beautiful old town to get the lay of the land. These streets are absolutely stunning and you can easily spend 1/3 -1/2 a day just meandering in and out of these streets with no where to go. We walked along the Riva as well which is pretty, but no where near as beautiful as the old town
Our amazing Airbnb in the city walls. It had a huge pan, open window that lead essentially the flat roof. The view from this place was phenomenal too. Our host had every kind of succulent out of the roof. This was a prime spot since it was so close to everything. We slept with the doors/pan window open every night and listened to the live music being played at the Luxor Restaurant, every night from our Balcony
Grabbed a bite in the city walls. We got a charcuterie board and pumpkin goat cheese bruschetta
We rented a car from Sixt for the next day, to get to Plitvice. We grabbed a coffee here, while we waited for the Sixt guy to finally arrive. The Sixt location was kind of difficult to find. It’s on the second floor of a large business complex. Also, one of our tires kept going low. Luckily, we had an air compressor in the trunk so we could fill it up regularly. Looking back, it would have been easier to rent a car from the airport, instead of paying for a cab from the airport and then we another cab to the sixt rental place. It would have saved us a lot of hassle, time and money
Dinner here was great—started out with the Bombilinis. Prescott got the Lamb shank and I got the Oxtail Risotto. We sat outside and watched the world go by while eating delicious food.
Grabbed some ice cream and went back to our apartment to listen to the music in the square beneath us and finish our wine from Bokerria.
THIS IS A MUST, its like Pinterest porn. From split, it took about 2.5 hours but the drive is very easy and the scenery during the drive is stunning. We took trail C, which covers both the upper and lower lakes. The lower lakes are probably the prettiest of them all. The park estimated that it takes 5-6 hours but we did it (without crowds) in about 3. I would imagine that with crowds, it would take longer only because you would have to wait to get the picture you would want or for others to pass. We packed food to bring with us (and then forgot the cheese).
Small little town that we stopped here on our way back from Plitvice.
There’s an adorable wine garden here, but it wasn’t open. We stopped at another place we thought was wine garden...which only served wine and brandy and it was, interesting? We walked up and the lady, who was outside dirnking and smoking a cigarette, talking to her friend was like “What you want? We have Wine and Brandy and that is it”…we were like, um do you even work here? This is a good kick off place if you’re doing Krk Waterfalls though. It was essentially empty after 1pm (which is probably because of off season)
This place was also pretty empty and SUPER windy but I could see how it could be really cute during high season. In the walled portion of the city is an old, small town with plenty of food options (none were open when we went, except for Tiffany’s) along the water. There’s a pretty church right on the end of the island. It’s a beautiful picture taken from a far.
This place is also a must. Amazing little walled in city, right outside of Split. We spent the rest of the day slowing walking around, exploring the old town. Again, you could spend ½ a day just walking around and taking in the sites.
Missed: The Kamerlengo Fortress—this was closed when we went to go check it out and I think its something that probably can be missed. But, if you have time, it should be checked out
Dinner here was phenomenal. We shared the Ocean Plate + Goat Cheese + Mussels + Fuzi Pasta with Bacon and Fig.
Grabbed some ice cream here. Its outside the city walls, near where we parked but is in route when walking back to the Old Town
Stunning town outside of split. It took about 25 minutes to walk the whole thing + explore the fortress but well worth it!
Beautiful old fortress that you can visit and climb up to the top. The signs are easy enough to follow in town. It takes about 10-30 min to walk all the way up but make sure you climb the ladder through the very small hole in the tower to get the best possible views at the top.
Grabbed a coffee and some treats while wondering around Omis. The area is so cute and the limoncello (THE BEST!) and raspberry caramel macaroon was so tasty
THIS IS A MUST! It took about 2 hours in total and was a blast (even with my fear of heights)
Stopped here in Brela to grab a bite and a drink. Not a lot open this time of year, unfortunately! Got the octopus salad and the calamari
Great place and great host!
Explored around here while waiting for the Sixt guy to get back to the shop. It’s nice to walk around the seaside promenade. The church really isn’t much to look at though. We sat for a while, near the rocks in front of villa Lilly (a strange apartment/rental that may be empty) to watch the waves come crashing in
Omg this meal....I can’t not even begin to explain how odd and hilarious this all went. From the 3 day meat that was the chemist thing I’ve ever eaten to the work best monitor that tasted nothing like a mojito. Then there was the black rosotto without mushrooms that was actually rice WITH mushrooms. The white lady drink that was essentially only gin. This was a hilarious night
Morning run to Nugal beach
Ferry to Brac — used TaxiMia to take us from sumartin to bol. The guy knew of Baton Rouge due to working on the boat/ports (crazy) Easy, affordable. Great service.
Airbnb. Ronni. Woke him up. (Cab guy ran away). Fantastic place
Beautiful but empty. OH MY. Thought today was going to be a disaster. No food, cancelled quad car, German tourist asking how to get off the island. Rough start
The one place where there was food. Cheese omelette, club sandwich and legit lemon water....not lemon aid, lemon water
Great place. Got bottle of rose and white. So delicious and cheap. Cool story behind label (empty)
Famous Beach. Probably really cool during summer/high season
Beautiful, isolated beach. Small road to get to but worth it
One of the BEST things we did. The history is amazing, the cousins are great and the food/spread is even better. Fig marmalade is to die for.
Best spot for sunset. Gets cold, bring a jacket. Easy to find but can bring a car through the stone gate to the top, don’t be fooled. Also, sheep
Recommended by Ronni. Really the only place open. Big menu, good selection. Got the gnocchi with bacon and truffle and “chocolate pancakes” aka Nutella crepes. Cat kept jumping up on my chair. Table of ladies behind us that knew everyone in town. After dinner drinks/liquor (fig and ?prescott some sort of traditional/medicinal herbs—barf)
Delicious but the FLIES. Omg
Great views. A bit of a hike but worth it + restaurant with wine!
Super easy to drive. Visited the islands and their coves. I can imagine this is amazing during high season. Low season still beautiful but absolutely nothing going on. All things closed.
